About NILS

At age four, Nils began participating in the Swedish National pastime of cross-country skiing. At age ten, he was introduced to alpine skiing while on vacation with his family in Norway. He fell in love with the sport and while in high school and college, started traveling to his favorite ski destinations in Austria, Switzerland and France.

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, in the mid 70's, 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, in the growing need for a high quality, fashion-driven womens skiwear line, NILS Skiwear was born.
