Black Crows Skis and aussieskier.com are a perfect match.
It’s no secret that we are smitten with the Chamonix area having skied there approximately a month a year since 2010 and we hosted our first aussieskier Adventures tour to the area in Feb/March of 2017.
Black Crows Skis were formed in Chamonix in 2006 by professional skiers Bruno Compagnet and Camille Jaccoux, and in this period have grown to become a significant independent brand, and when you’re in the line for the tram to the Aiguille du Midi or Grands Montets you will see many of the local rippers with their trusty Crows. Their skis have been designed and manufactured to perform in Chamonix, which is the most demanding environment of all.
We have been working on bringing Black Crows to Australia for over 2 years, and this process has been accelerated by our relationship with their Australian Sales/Marketing executive and pro skier Chris Booth. Our plans crystallised during our trip to Chamonix in Feb/Mar of this year after meeting with Chris, founder Bruno and ski designer Julien Regnier. We followed this up at the SIGB ski test in Kuhtai, Austria in March where we skied on the bulk of the current range and walked away very impressed, and also very informed to place our first order.
We found the overall feeling of the brand to be smooth skiing, with a damp but not dull feeling, and solid without being crazy stiff. Overall an excellent balance for on and off-piste skiing with no nasty surprises.
Our first delivery arrived yesterday, with the bulk of the womens skis to come in a second delivery and we are stoked. A November delivery will follow with the wider models.
