GET READY TO GET DOWN! PRE-SALE STARTS SEPTEMBER 1st!!

While the mountains here in Switzerland still have some snow (after a little summer storm) most of you are out enjoying the warm weather…..but even with the changing seasons we have been hard at work finalizing all the new improvements for 17/18 to the already award winning DOWN line up from 16/17. You will notice more BIG changes that come directly from your feedback and input. (and Request Line inputs)

We have upgraded the total line-up (again) improving materials, designs, and profiles. I know you will be very excited by the changes and I am personally stoked to get you DOWN this year. I believe our direct to skier model (for the past 6+ years) and amazing ski quality will ensure you are DOWN convert forever 🙂 Skis are already in production and will be delivered no later than November 1st.

Over the next few days we will start to release the 17/18 lineup and on September 1st (mark your calendars) we will start our pre-sale for a limited time. Just like last year they will be the best prices of the year…..to make sure you keep up on what is going on in the world of DOWN please:

1) Join our mailing list.

2) Join us on Instagram

3) Join us on FaceBook

Note all these are free and lets us communicate with you (and other skiers) better and for less money than traditional advertising…which we return to you in less expensive and better skis that you can enjoy (our goal) 🙂

Last but not least……I cannot thank all the DOWN skiers for the support in 16/17. You have let us continue another year on our mission of creating the best quality and value skis in the industry.

All the best and keep spreading the DOWN word,

Geo, Founder, DOWN FREE Sarl (CH)

Merry Christmas from Down

Just a quick update.

The first batches of the new, crowdfunded lengths have just been shipped. The CountDown 114 182cm and the CountDown 104 187cm would not have been possible to realize without your support, so thanks a lot/vielen dank/merci beaucoup/muchas gracias/tusen takk!

Next up is the CountDown 114 196cm, which we are putting into production as soon as possible. We will keep you updated.

If you’re looking for other lengths/models, send us an email or tell us on Facebook/Instagram. We’re always listening and looking for new ideas, and your input is what we appreciate the most.

Finally, enjoy the holidays coming up, hope for snow and have a great time with family and friends!

Carbon Friday V3!

So tomorrow is the infamous Black Friday….Carbon Friday to us here at DOWN. As our large corporate ski conglomerate friends help advertise this day we thought we would leverage that free advertising/frenzy (part of our mantra to spend more on you instead of advertising) and offer you some deals. These will be very limited throughout the day so keep checking www.downskis.com for great deals.

Enjoy and thanks again for the support of our small company.

Happy Carbon Friday!!

GET MORE, GET SMART, GET DOWN!
