Black Crows Brings Live Demos to Your Doorstep With Van-Based Ski Tour in Europe, U.S.

Black Crows is loading up the van and taking its skis on tour in Europe and Wyoming. And, they want you to join in on the action.

For winter 2021-2022, Black Crows will have two of its “Ski Sauvage” vans traveling the road, loaded with an array of skis from the all-terrain and big mountain collections.

The destinations? As of now, they’re France, Wyoming, Switzerland, and Austria. More locations will be added throughout the season.

Every week from November until the end of March, Black Crows will announce the location of the next Ski Sauvage pop-up on its social platforms. That way, you can join in on the ski tour, meet some folks from the Black Crows team, and most importantly, demo new skis.

What is Ski Sauvage? It’s essentially a live ski test, traveling by brand caravan. In the words of Black Crows, it’s “skiing in all its joyous substance.”

“The Ski Sauvage tour is about sharing adventures and new experiences with friends,” said Tristan Droppert, Black Crows North American Marketing Manager. “It’s a way of exploring new resorts, bringing people together, and enjoying time in the mountains.”

  • December 4-5: Alpe d’Huez, France
