Since 1946, Schnee’s and Schnee’s Powder Horn Outfitters have been serving the needs of serious outdoors-people. Our mission is to provide best-of-breed footwear, apparel, and outdoor products to discriminating customers worldwide, together with world-class customer service. From our headquarters in Bozeman, Montana, we have worked for more than 60 years to establish Schnee’s and Powder Horn Outfitters as a trusted resource for the highest quality products and customer service. We are committed to 100% Customer Satisfaction and in maintaining the standard of excellence by which we have come to be known and that our many loyal customers have come to expect.
In all that we do, we strive to share our love for the outdoors and to help preserve and enhance the natural world that we hold so dear. George Dieruf founded Powder Horn Outfitters in Bozeman, Montana, in 1946. George was a legendary hunter and outdoorsman. His real life adventures are the stuff of fiction and spanned the “Lower 48”, Canada, Alaska, and Africa. He established the Powder Horn in order to supply outdoors-people with high quality gear and apparel, at a fair value, together with the authentic expertise to back it up. Schnee’s Powder Horn Outfitters has done just that for over 60 years.
About thirty years ago, Steve Schnee founded Schnee’s Boots and Shoes not far from the Powder Horn in Bozeman, Montana. Over the course of the next 30 years, Steve and his wife Jean built one of the leading independent footwear companies in the United States, and introduced the now world-famous Schnee’s line of pac boots. The Schnee pac boot has become legendary among western hunters, ranchers, and outdoors-people who rely upon the Schnee’s brand for top quality footwear for tough conditions.
Our home in Bozeman, Montana, is located in the center of southwest Montana’s vast array of mountains, streams, wilderness, and unparalleled natural beauty. The area boasts outstanding alpine and Nordic adventure and five-star resort offerings. Bozeman is home to world-class fly fishing, hiking, biking, hunting and backcountry exploration. In particular, Bozeman is undeniably the headwaters of North American fly fishing for native, wild trout and other fish species. Over the years, Bozeman has emerged as a widely recognized symbol of western outdoor adventure, values and lifestyle. These values and the surrounding natural beauty have profoundly influenced our corporate culture and the way we do business. We strive to provide you with the best experience and knowledge, and apply what we know and learn to bring you even better service and products.
In addition to supporting local charities and community organizations such as the United Way, Gallatin Valley Land Trust, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Breathin' is Believin', Schnee's is proud to participate actively in numerous organizations and efforts to preserve and enhance the natural environment and wild lands of Montana. Our support of organizations such as the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Pheasants Forever, and Quail Forever underscore our commitment to sporting traditions and the natural environment.
