At Outdoor Retailer Snow Show 2019, Reporter Kelly Bastone sat down for an intimate chat with Klaus Obermeyer, who will turn 100 this year and has a lot to teach us all about business, skiing, and living large. Obermeyer started his namesake ski apparel company in 1947 and has attended trade shows since the ’60s. He says he skis every day because it’s easier than walking.
