Sure, we have all heard of skiing. But have you ever heard of the term “freeskiing”?
Over the years, some of the world’s top skiers have pushed the limits of the sport beyond the classically known downhill racing and skiing moguls. Freeskiing is a new-school type of alpine skiing that can involve tricks, jumps and terrain park features such as rails, boxes, jibs and more.
With this creative approach to experiencing the mountains came the need for a new type of ski. In 2006, pro freeskiers Camille Jaccoux and Bruno Compagnet met this demand by launching a new ski brand called Black Crows.
Black Crows is an independent freeski brand from Chamonix, France. Born out of the desire to collide beauty and efficiency into skis, they began with the vision of creating a powder ski that combined a wingspan big enough to withstand high-speed turns and a shape which could endure sudden changes in direction.
Since launching their original line-up, the corvus, Black Crows has expanded their offerings to include different lines of skis specifically for resort, all terrain, big mountain and touring skiing. Whether you are looking to push your skiing techniques into the realm of freeskiing or just keep to the groomers, Black Crows are certain to give your ski day a sense of freedom and adventure.
