Sven Coomer got his start in sport competing in the Modern Pentathlon, eventually representing Australia in the Olympics at age 16. As a 20 year old on spring break in Are, Sweden, Sven tried skiing for the first time and the rest is history. No person has had such an impact on the design of ski boots. In the words of Jackson Hogen “Modern ski boots don’t just echo his designs, they’re based on them.” Read more about Sven’s contributions to the arc of skiing u003ca href=u0022https://www.zipfit.com/us/sven-coomer/u0022 data-type=u0022pageu0022 data-id=u002214u0022u003eHEREu003c/au003e.

At 10 years old (using the Colorado 5th Grade Ski Passport) Chris and his dad skied every resort in Colorado. During their stop in Aspen Chris was introduced to his grandma’s new boyfriend – Sven Coomer who fit Chris and his dad into their first pair of ZipFits. 20 years later and Chris has never been able to relate to people who have foot problems while skiing but he doesn’t let it get to him. Instead, he enjoys skiing with his dog Mabel and fiancé Alex, and hanging out in Aspen with his grandma and her now-husband Sven. Side note, Chris’s brother calls Sven u0022New-Grandaddyu0022 but that makes Chris uncomfortable.
