When the godfather of American steep skiing, Andrew McLean, stood atop a couloir at dawn in 1995, he smiled, knowing he used the Whippet, a tool he invented while working for Black Diamond. And from those early days of innovation, the desire to redefine the equipment available to skiers worldwide has only grown.

From our JetForce airbags to redesigned skins, and of course, the new Whippet, our ski and snow safety equipment is designed with the same spirit of ingenuity that McLean and others brought to the game, with the same purpose in mind: so that you too, can redefine your line.
