Mountain Mayhem : Aspen-based brand Corbeaux opens retail space downtown
Aspen-based clothing brand Corbeaux opened a downtown retail space recently and celebrated with a Small Business Saturday shopping event on Nov. 26. Owners Darcy Conover and Adam Moszynski welcomed friends and customers for an après-ski extravaganza, offering an array of sweet treats, hot chocolate, and bubbles to enjoy while browsing.
Nearly 10 years ago, Conover and Moszynski, who are partners in marriage, parenting, business, and adventure, launched their line of stylish and functional base layers and activewear with a successful Kickstarter campaign.
Since then, Corbeaux (French for ravens) has continued to grow, expanding their offerings for men, women, and kids to include beanies, hoodies, pants, and more. As pro skiers, they find their inspiration in the mountains and wilderness, designing and testing their products in Aspen on ski tours, trail runs, and high-country hikes. The fashion-forward and high-performance next-to-skin apparel is made in the USA, using only sustainable fabrics.
They also work with non-profits, creating custom lines for Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Club, Challenge Aspen, and High Fives Foundation.
“We’re excited to be here,” said Conover of their pop-up shop. “And, we’re also hiring!”
Visit Corbeaux’s concept shop at 633 East Hopkins Ave., open daily through ski season.
“Without any exception the worst snow storm known since the advent of the railroad west of Leadville has been raging over the crest of the continental divide since last Thursday,” asserted the Aspen Tribune on January 31, 1899.
