Company History Cima Mountaineering was founded as a Western boots maker by the name of the Hoback Company, based out of Jackson, Wyoming. In the 1960s, and into the 70s, as the demand for Western boots began to decline, the company’s profit share steadily declined until Anthony and Margaret took control of the company in 1975 and showed a profit on 1.5 million in sales of $45,000.
