“From the beginning, I trusted YetOpen’s advice and experience to choose an effective e-commerce platform to simplify our job and have an online presence. I soon understood the advantages of their service, especially the potential offered by a Sherpa virtual shop.”

Sherpa SNC Owner




For years, Sherpa Mountain Shop has been the go-to shop for all mountain enthusiasts. The shop specializes in climbing, mountaineering, trekking, and work safety gear. Moreover, the “mountain lovers” shop is the favorite place for those who still want to breathe a mountain atmosphere while indoors. It is also ideal  for those looking for advice or simply wanting to exchange opinions in a sympathetic environment, where staff is very attentive to the demands of clients with various technical and fitness levels.

The shop was created in 2001 from an idea of founder Giovanni Viganò. A big outdoors lover and mountain sage, he decided to challenge himself and turn his passion into a career.

Website visitors can breathe in a winning bet of quality and passion when they visit Sherpa Mountain Shop in person or online.



This client’s main request was to have a consistently updated website with reliable, automated services. Moreover, there was a need to simplify and speed up the client’s workflow. YetOpen created custom software to meet this client’s needs.
