    Manufacturer's Description

    We wanted to make the Atris more stable at high speed without altering its great handling and playfulness. Our team was successful with this by intervening on three variables: extension of the radius, a softening of the flex and a more progressive heel rise. So, the Atris has become more easily handled at speed without altering its ease of handling. the new Atris opens the doors of a great ski.

    Manufacturer's Description

    Thanks to a balance of playfulness and power, the Atris has been a perennial leader in the 108-millimeter-underfoot class since it debuted in 2014. Manufactured in the Elan factory, the Atris features a semi-cap construction for durability in the tips and tails and sidewall underfoot for direct power transmission to the edges. The poplar wood core feels damp and smooth but the ski really shines thanks to its dialed taper profile and well-adjusted rocker profile.

    New this season, Black Crows made subtle improvements to address high speed stability without taking away from its approachable and versatile nature. The Atris has always been a no-nonsense, confidence-inspiring ski that’s less camber dominant than its more directional brother, the Corvus. And while Black Crows lengthened the sidecut to 20 meters, they also slightly mellowed out its stiffer flex and made the rocker profile more progressive in order to maintain its trademark balance.

    On snow, this translated to a smooth, playful feel through the light wind deposited snow and chalk below Big Sky’s brand new Challenger lift. The Atris is playful and effortless to engage, allowing for easy turn shape changes thanks to the ample rocker and mellow flex profile. On the flip side, the Atris remains true to Black Crows’ big mountain roots and is not afraid of being pushed harder. As I tipped into some steeper turns in the Three Forks zone of the Headwaters, the longer sidecut and damp poplar core kicked in for a powerful, fast ride to the bottom.

    A ski’s ability to be ridden well and appreciated by riders of different backgrounds and skiing styles is often understated. The Atris does just that, catering to strong skiers of all backgrounds, whether you’re an ex-racer or a retired park rat. As a one-ski quiver out West, or a dedicated powder ski in the East, the Atris remains a versatile ski that’s approachable and exciting. It always has a little extra horsepower under the hood when you decide to open the throttle. —Alex Meilleur

    Atris Birdie

    $770.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    Let’s keep this simple: The Black Crows Atris, and the Atris Birdie for women, is a fantastic ski for 95 percent of my days. Pure and plain, it rips all over the mountain. It’s the sweet spot in the Black Crows’ lineup, with universal appeal that translates to me skiing whatever I want on any given day. Could be trees in a thick storm, the great wide open in the high alpine, or average wind buff days at the ski resort.

    Black Crows gave the Atris a classic shape that many ski companies have dialed in recent years—camber underfoot, early rise in the tip and tail. New this year, Black Crows touched up the design, giving the Atris a longer turning radius and softer flex, and making the early rise in the tail more pronounced. These tweaks make the Atris more stable at higher speeds than previous years, without compromising its versatile and playful DNA.

    The Birdie, which is a tad softer than the men’s version, comes in two sizes, 169 and 178 centimeters. It’s made with a poplar wood core and semi-cap construction, and a 20-meter turning radius, a bump from previous models. The bright orange top sheet is an eye-catcher and the chevron design is a thicker white in the center, a visual cue that mimicks the camber design of the ski.

    When I took the Atris Birdies out for a spin at Powder Week, I felt graceful and confident. I’d bring these to steep, no-fall-zone lines in the Alps, or I could mess around on the Atris all day inbounds, popping off jumps and rocks and arcing turns on groomers. The progressive rise in the tail is soft, buttery, and forgiving—so I could ski without fear of punishment. At times, the Atris’ 109-centimeters underfoot felt a little slow transferring from edge-to-edge, so I’d probably grab another pair of skis on super firm days. And those who like to press the gas pedal all the way down may find they lack a little “oomph.”

    Otherwise, the Atris is a ski to get high on. And Black Crows is already experiencing a high in the United States, a market they’ve only just begun to establish themselves in. A lot of people are jiving on Black Crows, for good reason. They make solid skis that prove themselves. Meanwhile in Chamonix, Black Crows has already climbed to the top of the ladder, a place they’ve been since breaking out in the late aughts. It’s only a matter of time before they achieve that status on this side of the Atlantic. —Julie Brown

    Daemon

    $770.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    By definition, a daemon is a supernatural being of a nature that is both god-like and human. Which suits this ski, too. Ninety-nine underfoot, incorporating metal and reverse camberthe Daemon is an anomaly. But it works very well as a firm snow chunder destroyer and was one of the most talked-about skis at Powder Week.

    “I didn’t think a full rocker skinny ski would work, but it did,” said Powder Union member Spencer Harkins. “It’s a strong, high-energy, fun ripper that made me eat my words.”

    A poplar wood core and semi-cap construction round out the stiff sheet of Titanal that runs through the center of the ski, stopping before the tip and tail. My first thought when I picked up the ski was intimidation at the 183.6-centimeter length. However, it does not ski long. And for being a reverse camber ski, it is a very stable ski. Aggressive underfoot, be ready to finish the turn you started. But the softer tip and tails lend forgiveness.

    I watched this ski go out of the tent and then not come back for a really long time. That usually means that whoever is shredding doesn’t want to return it. Black Crows skis do not disappoint. Chamonix Frenchies are hooked on them for a reason—they get you down whatever you want. The minute I saw the Daemon on the rack, I snagged it.

    A stiff, 99-underfoot platform, this ski is great for snapping fun, “look how low my hip can go” turns. Check your shadow out for full effect. It’s a ski to have in the quiver, but deep days will require a bit more work on the driver’s side. Otherwise, prepare to look at the mountain in a new way with these bad boys on your feet. I think the Daemon’s could turn us all into supernatural beings. —Hannah Victory

    Orb

    $699.95

    Manufacturer's Description

    A different animal. This Black Crows classic has been profoundly modernized from a new mould, acquiring a new single beak and a half shape (front rocker with a light early rise tail) and a titanal layered core, giving it an infallible, occasionally brutal, alpine spirit. This new breed of Orb is more aggressive than anything we’ve seen before, with superior edge hold on piste and in variable snow conditions.

    Brand Description

    Black Crows is an independent French freeski brand from Chamonix. Founded almost 10 years ago by pro freeskiers Camille Jaccoux and Bruno Compagnet, Black Crows was borne out of a desire to collide beauty and efficiency into skis. Today Black Crows continues to apply the same philosophy to its development process, creating obsessively design-driven products that are uncompromising in performance and design for discerning freeskiers around the world.
