In 2016 NILS celebrates their 36th year with roots tracing back to Sweden where founder Nils Andersson was born. At age four, Nils Andersson began participating in the Swedish National pastime of Nordic, cross-country skiing. At age ten, he was introduced to alpine skiing while on vacation with his family in Norway where he fell in love with the sport. While in high school and college, he started traveling to his favorite ski destinations in Austria, Switzerland and France and after high school, Nils enrolled at the German Textile Academy in Munich where he discovered his passion for designing and pattern making. It was during a vacation to the United States that his passion for skiing and designing would merge. While visiting Newport Beach, California, Nils met his soon to be wife and future merchandiser, Nancy, who was working at a local ski shop. Nils soon left Sweden and took up residence in Newport Beach where he began designing mens shells for a ski shop in the area. Three years later, with the growing need for a high quality, fashion-driven womens skiwear line, NILS Skiwear was born.
NILS Skiwear became one of the first fashion companies to incorporate Gore-Tex into their collections. With the innovative design of the high waist, stretch bottom suit they soon began to dominate the stretch suit market. Over the course of the next several years NILS ski jackets established a reputation as the best fitting womens skiwear collection in the business and the product offering was extended to include sweaters, fleece, resort wear and petites. The universal active sportswear layering system and NILS ski jackets' waterproof, breathable outerwear system is consistently regarded as the most complete offering for women in the industry.
Today, NILS is pleased to offer the finest, best fitting skiwear and resort sportswear along with setting the standard for customer service and education within the snow sports industry. NILS' mission has always been to design winter sportswear with uncompromising style and performance, and was founded by the focus on fit, fashion and functionality.
