Black Crows is an independent freeski brand from Chamonix. Founded in 2006 by pro freeskiers Camille Jaccoux and Bruno Campagnet, Black Crows was born out of a desire to collide beauty and efficiency into skis.

Freeskiing is devoted to the unadulterated pursuit of pleasure and absolute freedom.Freedom to ski, but also to innovate and to pioneer. The Black Crows story is foremost about a group of friends determine dto fulfill their ambitions and unafraid to challenge the norm.
During the winter of 2005, Camille Jaccoux and Bruno Campagnet, two professional skiers and long-time friends, dreamt of a ski which would be the antithesis to the skis then on offer in the freeride ski market. Their vision was a powder ski which would combine a wingspan big enough to withstand high-speed turns and a shape which could endure sudden changes in direction. As the general trend in the market was for narrower and flared-out skis, the two riders just couldn't find a model to meet their demands...

Although Dalbello began producing ski boots in 1974, founders Alessandro and Giovanna Dal Bello perfected their trade as ski boot building "artisans" at the Henke ski boot factory in Switzerland in the early 1960s. Upon returning to Italy with their new, young, family, they started stitching leather ski boot uppers for Henke under contract. "Although we were happy to be back in Italy, as contract component manufacturers, we were limited in our ability to showcase our real talents as ski boot craftsmen. We knew that our ideas and reativity were not being efficiently utilized, and we were confident that we could make a better business producing ski boots on our own" said Alessandro Dal Bello, CEO. So that's exactly what they did. The first Dalbello ski boots were sold in Austria in 1974.
"The ten spectacular Olympic victories in 2014 are the crowning achievement, incredible and almost unexpected, of forty years' work. They pay homage to my family and to the team that has accompanied me up to this point".
Alessandro Dal Bello - Founder

Innovation and tradition share equally deep roots at SCARPA, which today remains a family owned company with its headquarters and performance footwear manufacturing facilities in the same regions of northern Italy where it got its start in 1938.
Founded in Asolo, in the Montebelluna region, an area long known for its quality, handcrafted footwear, SCARPA's initial mission was to bring together all the best shoemakers in the Asolo area toward a goal of producing the best footwear anywhere. SCARPA stands for Società Calzaturiera Asolana Riunita Pedemontana Anonima, which means Associated Shoe Manufacturing Company of the Asolo Mountain Area. That pioneering spirit has continued at SCARPA. The company has many firsts to its name, including being the first to build a Gore-Tex boot and the first to develop a plastic telemark skiing boot, and introduced in 2007, the first telemark and alpine touring compatible boot.
Now the next generation od Parisottos is continuing that pursuit of innovative mountain footwear. Sandro, Piero, Davide, Cristina and Andrea Parisotto continue to lead the company to produce the finest footwear for hiking and trekking, mountaineering and skiing.

It's the quality label we stand behind to communicate our legacy of premium optics and lens innovations. From our patented Amplifier technology, the industry standard for contrast enhancing lenses, to our light-boosting series, which can brighten even the darkest of conditions.
Since 1960, integration and diversification strategies together with the ability to create high performing products has made the company a leader in ski boot, after-ski and outdoor segments.
In 2002, the company introduces two revolutionary technologies: HOTFORM, a special thermoformable liner and Rapid Access, an innovative technology allowing the foot to slide in and out of the boot with ease.

Since 1888. Morez in the valley of the French eyewear industry, a Jura native launched a brand which would not yet be called Julbo, but almost... thanks to the name of the founder Jules Baud. He started his business designing optical eyewear with one idea in mind: innovation. In the early 20th century, at the request of Chamonix crystal hunters wanting to protect their eyes in the mountains, he designed the first 'Cristalliers' sunglasses, marking the start of Julbo's optical sun protection story.
125 years fly by when your head is always full of ideas and dreams. Drawing inspiration from its heritage, Julbo wants to be known for its outdoor spirit in the eyewear market. We will soopn be releasing new ranges and new products but always with that same taste for adventure and freedom that allows everyone to see the world even better.
