Stefan Hausberger: Owner
Owner since 1999, Stefan will celebrate his 29th season with Zimmermanns this year. Starting when he was just 14, working part time, he learned the ropes from his father and uncle. He climbed the ladder until finally he was ready to take over the family business. Since 1999, he has expanded the Zimmermanns name by opening several shops in NH and MA. At one time there were as many as 8 different Zimmermanns locations. Today Stefan owns and operates 3 locations, all in NH:
-Zimmermanns Skis, Boards & More in Nashua, specalizing in skiing and snowboard gear and apparel.
-Zimmermanns Summit Shop, located in Nashua, next to the ski shop, separate staff, entrance and personality. The Summit Shop sells exclusively equipment and clothing from The North Face. If The North Face makes it, they probably have it !
-Zimmermanns Summit Shop in beautiful Hanover NH, on the Dartmouth College campus, is our connection to the Upper Valley. This store also sells exclusively North Face products. If we don’t have it in Nashua, Hanover is just a day away whether we use USPS, UPS or FEDEX.
Vinnie Durham: GM
Started with the Zimmermanns family in 2012. Originally
hired to head the Oakley division of Zimmermanns, Vinnie was a quick study and quickly rose to position of GM. Vinnie brings with him a vast skill set and understanding of both customer service and importance of team building and product knowledge. Vinnie has a bright future in the ski and snowboard industry, and is currently involved in product testing and purchasing for all three locations.
Brenda Nunes: Clothing Buyer
Brenda has a career in the ski industry that goes back 30 years. She is responsible for the incredible selection of jackets, pants and accessories Zimmermanns offers. She can spot a trend a mile away, and a flash in the pan two miles away. She has a particularly good eye for spotting the very best in kids winter clothing and accessories. She knows what fits and what doesn’t, she knows what is going to keep your son or daughter the warmest and the driest. If your child needs new gear this winter, see Brenda. Brenda also heads up our team of womens ski and board testers. An active participant in both sports, she is a major decision maker in the buying processfor all of our ladies ski and board models.
Andre has been with Zimmermanns part time for the past 9 years. He is heading up our marketing department and is responsible for keeping our website up to date as well as maintaining a managerial position. Andre has a bachelors degree in Marketing and has been doing sales since he began here. When he’s not behind the screen of a computer, he’s on the sales floor talking about the latest and greatest ski and board gear and providing unparalleled service for custom boot fitting. His passion for the winter sports is infectious, in a good way.
Jon Ellis: Asst. Manager
Some of his past jobs include: snowboard supervisor at Okemo Mountain Resort, Beer Captain at Harpoon Brewery (yes, we all love beer, very, very much!), outdoor adventure guide, and store guide at EMS. He has extensive experience within the industry as well as the perfect man to guide your Apres choices. He is well known for his “dad jokes” but also his passion for all things skiing and boarding. His passion took him all the way to Argentina this summer in search of fresh pow!
Alex Kuhnert: Lease Supervisor/Sales
Without Alex, the day simply would not run smoothly. Hard working and incredibly knowledgable of the sport. Alex has been skiing and boarding his whole life and has been coaching freestyle skiing and boarding for years. His style is effortless and there is no terrain he can’t handle. Need some good advice about park skis? Alex is your guy! He also had the ultimate fanboy moment when he got to ski with his idol, Glen Plake at Stratton while testing next years skis!
Kenny Unsworth: Ski Technician
Owner and founder of Millyard Brewery in Nashua, NH (subtle product placement), Ken has been with us for about 5 years. We’ve been drinking his beer since it was home-brew and now he’s been able to pursue his passion! If he isn’t at the brewery making cold, delicious beer (sometimes on tap here!), Ken is putting the absolute most incredible tunes on your skis. Whether its a quick wax or a full on race tune, no one is more knowledgable and cares more about the product he is putting out!
Bill has been with Zimmermanns Summit Shop in Hanover, NH since day one. As we enter our 10th year on the Dartmouth College campus, Bill is the secret to our success there. Prior to working with the Zimmermanns Family, Bill was head buyer for an outdoors store in Boston, MA. When the store changed hands, Bill was looking for a new start and he found it in the north country of NH. Bill is a true outdoor enthusiast, so the VT border is a great place for him to call home. He is an active rock climber and enjoys passing on his knowledge of climbing to those just getting into it. Bill is the head buyer for the store and is responsible for all of the day to day activities needed to run our most northern location.
Everything would come to a stand still if not for this little lady. Born and raised in the mountains of Austria, Rena has a background in the banking industry. She came to the US 12 years ago and took on the role of Book keeper. Not a single dollar comes in or goes out without her giving the OK. Being from Austria, getting her on the woman’s ski test team was a no brainer. In addition to keeping the finances straight, she plays an important role in choosing the line up for our woman’s ski and board lineup.
