Mountain Spirit: Snowleader's Outdoor Mag


Back in 2018, we celebrated our 10th anniversary! We decided to mark the occasion by publishing our own outdoor magazine (in french to begin with), to celebrate the company's success with our dear customers (whose numbers keep growing). Mountain Spirit is much more than just a magazine, it is a collection of stories, beautiful journeys and tips and tricks from our team of enthusiasts!

"The idea had been floating in the air for a while, but we had to bring together all the ingredients to produce a magazine we would be proud of. In other words, a team of enthusiasts, events, a van, farm-produced reblochon, tons of it" explains Thomas Rouault, Snowleader's co-founder. Job's done!

"The purpose of this bi-annual magazine is to share the Reblochon Company's passion for the mountains, to inspire people to practice, book their holidays in the mountains, and to have their head filled with projects", continues Julien Audigier, Snowleader's marketing manager.
