Chamonix-based innovators of high-performance skis embark on a full-send partnership with the highly respected big mountain skier
Chamonix, France / Jackson, Wyoming /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – ZAG Skis, the leading manufacturer of sustainable skis, is thrilled to announce the signing of professional skier, Tristan Brown, to its roster of elite mountain athletes. With this exciting partnership, ZAG Skis continues its commitment to supporting exceptional talent in the ski industry. From skiing Terminal Cancer Couloir to participating in Kings & Queens of Jackson Hole, Tristan’s skiing is an invaluable addition to ZAG’s stable of athletes.
Tristan Brown, a name that needs no introduction in the Teton Valley, has captured the minds of skiers nationwide with his full-charge skiing. Hailing from the cradle of US skiing, Sun Valley, Idaho, Brown honed his skills on the slopes of Bald Mountain. After 13 years of bashing plastic ski racing, Tristan’s focus migrated to big mountains and freeskiing. After graduating from CU Boulder and studying environmental science, Tristan moved north, to the mecca of big mountain skiing, Jackson, Wyoming. On the slopes of Rendezvous Mountain, Tristan rose to fame – hucking massive cliffs, double back flipping into Corbets Couloir, and sending it off the Tetons’ highest and most challenging peaks.
ZAG Skis, renowned for its innovative sustainable ski technology and commitment to pushing the boundaries of performance on the mountain, is the perfect fit for Tristan Brown. The partnership between ZAG Skis and Brown represents a fusion of talent, innovation, and sustainability; setting the stage for an exciting future in the world of skiing.
“I’m beyond stoked about signing with Zag this season,” says Brown. “Our shared focus on freeride skiing and environmental sustainability makes for the perfect fit, and I see a bright future for our partnership.”
ZAG Skis shares Tristan’s enthusiasm for the partnership. “We are super thrilled to welcome Tristan to the team. We were looking for an authentic US skier and Tristan’s values match perfectly with ZAG DNA,” says Alan Lemasson, ZAG’s Head of Marketing. “We can’t wait to see Tristan shredding Jackson with the SLAP line underfoot – with Tristan sending huge cliffs around one of the most famous locations in the US”! ZAG and Tristan released their announcement today on Instagram.
ZAG Skis launched full bore in North America in 2022 after 20 years carving up the slopes of Europe, and is bringing its same innovative eco-conscious design ethos to the US and Canada.
