Get them while you can. The new Black Crow skis are here and quickly disappearing. Although Black Crow is a newer brand state side, it was born out of the Mountains of Chamonix in 2006. Since coming to the US market a couple of seasons ago they have been one of the hottest brands around. With 6 different models of skis to choose from at the Ski Haus, we cover a piece of all of Black Diamonds extensive offering.
From the Big Mountain/All Terrain category we have the Camox and Atris. At 97mm underfoot the Camox fits the bill as the all mountain mid-fat. Its tip and tail profile do great in softer snow, but its solid flex makes it rip up groomers, too. If you like a wider ski for the big snow days that still handles crud and groomers well, look no further than the 108mm Atris. I have never skied anything else this wide that performs so well all over the mountain.
For the ladies Black Crows offers the “Birdie” collection. The birdies use the same shape as the men’s skis but offer lighter weights with a more supple flex. Don’t let that description make you think that these skis are dumbed down for women, they rip. Like the men, Ski Haus has the Camox and Atris in the Birdie construction.
For those of you looking to get on the Backcountry, Black Crows has you covered with the Freebird series. These skis offer lower weights and more traditional tails for skins, but don’t let you sacrifice anything on the descent. At 109mm the Corvus Freebird gives you float in the backcountry, but enough shape to turn and power through all kinds of conditions. The Camox Freebird is very much like its All-Terrain counterpart, but keeps the weight down for touring.
Come demo or purchase a pair of Black Crows at the Ski Haus this winter, but come early, they are flying out the door.
