About Virtika Europe
Made for Riders by Riders
As former athletes and pro-riders, we strive to create the most comfortable, stylish, and indestructible ski and snowboard outerwear on the planet.
During our careers, we were continually disappointed and frustrated by the outerwear the ski and snowboard industry offered us. The choices were limited, uninteresting, poorly made or overpriced.
So, in 2008, we decided to create our own outerwear – top quality gear with the freeski, freeride and snowboard fit and style that we wanted to wear. True to our roots, our outerwear is always designed, tested and refined by athletes, who demand the best quality, features and styles.
Direct to You from the Alps
Virtika outerwear is only available online. We cut out the middle man, so you can get the highest quality outerwear at a reasonable price.
We are an independent and passionate producer of high-function winter outerwear based in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, in Denver, Colorado, USA, where all of our gear is designed.
In 2018, we launched our European operations in Zurich, Switzerland so we could offer European customers fast and hassle-free delivery, payment in Euros, as well as excellent customer service in your language.
From our European distribution centre in Munich, Germany, all orders are processed within 24 hours, shipped with DHL and include accurate package tracking. Orders are typically delivered to your door in 2-4 days.
Your Voice Counts
Our products are the result of countless suggestions and ideas from passionate snow enthusiasts just like you. We always welcome and value your questions, comments, and input so we can make the outerwear you want.
Also, every year in early May, we ask for your votes via Facebook and Instagram, to help choose next season’s colours and designs. Your voice is very important to us!

Based on your suggestions, as well as the testing and refinements by our team riders, we have been able to design and produce some of the best ski and snowboard outerwear anywhere.
