Ski Mag - Look Like A Local, Wear Corbeaux
Aspen’s adventure-driven lifestyle has bred performance-based gear built to go just as hard as the locals do. Corbeaux, known for its eco-friendly baselayers, is tried and tested by hard-charging Aspenites.
Outside on how Corbeaux "Perfected the Base Layer"
Darcy Conover envied her husband, Adam Moszynski, every time they skied together, but not for his skills. Both are professional ski mountaineers, and Conover has summited prominent objectives around the Western Hemisphere, including 92 of Colorado’s Centennial Peaks, the 100 highest peaks in the state. What Moszynski had was a one-piece base layer that outperformed anything in Conover’s closet. It taunted her: why couldn’t she get something awesome like that?
Outside Recommends Corbeaux When Layering Up
Your bottom layer counts the most. Start with a thin, breathable, wicking baselayer like Corbeaux’s Cusco Long Sleeve, a versatile top with thumb loops, a hole for your altimeter watch, and a sporty fit.
Backcountry Magazine on Corbeaux's Join The Flight Program
In 2014, Adam and his wife, Darcy Conover, started a baselayer company, Corbeaux Clothing. Adam and I then traveled to Ecuador as part of Corbeaux Clothing’s Join the Flight campaign with nearly 100 assorted items of apparel to donate to the country’s national guiding association, Asociacion Ecuatorania de Guias de Montaña (ASEGUIM); however, that wasn’t our only mission. We planned to ski Ecuador’s three highest peaks—Chimborazo (20,702 ft.), Cotopaxi (19,347 ft.) and Cayambe (18,996 ft.).
Outside on Small Companies With Big Impact
A one-year-old mom-and-pop startup in Aspen, Colorado, Corbeaux makes a small assortment of athlete-designed mountain apparel for men and women, from baselayers to thermal onesies for frigid powder days. They use eco-conscious bamboo and recycled polyester, and their Join the Flight program to personally distribute gently used clothes to guides and porters in mountain communities all over the world is more than an afterthought.
