How to always stay on top in deep powder snow
The models in the Big Mountain Ski product range stand out strongly from conventional alpine models, not just visually. With larger center widths and wider shovels, they ensure that you always ride on the surface even in loose deep snow. This is of critical importance when riding off-trail across the snowy Arlberg.
The special construction of the skis allows you to enjoy effortless downhill skiing. These items enable agility and maneuverability, with effortless turning in deep snow. These qualities make the Big Mountain skis the perfect choice if you want to enjoy the winter away from any prepared slopes.
Ideal for those who wish to make their own way down the mountain
Special skis that are at home off-piste
Big Mountain skis are mainly for off-piste use. Downhill runs on the piste are always an option. Here, however, it becomes clear, especially in icy conditions, that this is not the main focus for these models. The lack of edge grip, especially on hard slopes, requires particular caution if you do decide to use these models on the slopes.
If you want to have fun on the piste as well as side-step into deeper snow, we recommend the 6* category. Here you will find that some of the models from the Black Crows line are suitable for turns on the piste as well as in the backcountry. So you don't have to compromise on your adventure. For your ski tours, we recommend our touring ski category with light touring skis - including skins.
