The history of Simond is closely linked to the history of mountaineering.
There were several brothers in the Simond family in the early 1820s, all blacksmiths and crystal hunters. They worked with wood and iron, in a forge on the banks of the Arve making agricultural implements and bells as well as tools for their crystal hunting. The first adventurers looking to explore the Mont Blanc massif found in the Simond brothers just the men they needed to make their tools for the mountains.
By 1860 more and more visitors were coming to the valley and the brothers divided up the work at the forge, with François Simond taking on the manufacture of mountain equipment: axes, crampons, toboggans, skis etc. At this time François had a small forge at the foot of the Bossons glacier that had an electric generator. All the ingredients were now in place: he had the expertise (for working iron and wood), the technology (the forge and electricity) and the customers (explorers). And it was all in Chamonix, which was on its way to becoming the world capital of mountaineering…

Happy Monday Too Good Family! It’s Anique 👋🏾 so I recently bought a gratitude tree from @target ‘s $1 hot spot and I am so excited for my family and I to write out the things we are grateful for. It’s so easy to go through the motions. That’s why taking some time to pause, to think about why you do what you do and to reflect on the things you’re thankful for is so important. 💚
What are you truly thankful for this week? #grateful#familycompany#livewell#toogoodeats#gratitude#mondaymotivation
