Since the launch of the site we have received a multitude of emails requesting more information on the presale pricing… and we will get to that….. but I wanted to start off by telling you a little more about DOWN. We are a small start-up in Switzerland that started on the idea that we could make the “indie” ski model better. We wanted to have both our designs and our quality standout in the crowded “freeride” world. This is what we push for everyday. Our marketing is not filled with fancy buzz-words and we don’t do full page “spreads”. We don’t have a huge “pro” team and we are not a ski movie sponsor. We don’t make apparel and we don’t have 50 models of skis….but what we do have is YOU. Our skiers and customers. Our friends and family. WE ARE DOWN WITH YOU.  Like we said in the first post for 12/13 “we are nothing without your support” and that resonates with us daily as we continue this journey with DOWN. We have designed the 12/13 line-up with you in mind and changed a great deal of things directly from your feedback. What we haven’t changed is our design concept, time-tested sandwich construction, handmade quality, and direct to owner customer service. All that being said, thank you again for the support and I look forward to seeing you on a pair of DOWNs this winter. As always, contact us anytime with questions or comments. ([email protected]) We are here to help.
