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.
