Spyder Active Sports designs and markets the most recognized and respected brand of high-performance, technically-oriented skiwear in the world. The company offers a broad array of products, such as one-piece, form-fitting race suits, pants, jackets, vests, functional fleece pieces, sweaters and accessories, for men, women and children under the Spyder brand name.

Spyder's worldwide headquarters are located in Boulder, Colorado, nestled against the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. At an altitude of 5,400 feet, Boulder is an ideal location for product design and testing. The company is less than 30 minutes from skiing, while world-class climbing, hiking, and kayaking are in their own backyard!

Spyder founder and President David Jacobs was Canadian National Downhill Champion and former coach of the Canadian National team. He began designing and producing skiwear by hand in his Boulder kitchen in the late 1970's. He was also active in the design and manufacturing of the first Lange competition ski boot. His first clothes were designed for his own children, and have evolved into what is now Spyder Active Sports, Inc.

CHB's interest in Spyder was sold in 2004.
