Why We Like The Black Crows Corvus Freebird Ski
Ahh, Chamonix! It's known as the spiritual home of ski mountaineering and rando racing, but it's also the world capital of freeride touring, which is the preferred domain of the Black Crows Corvus Freebird Ski. With a design that's identical to the original Corvus, with the exception of a lighter core, the Freebird's capable of ascending big lines, but it really excels on the way down with its blend of underfoot camber, tip rocker, and powerful laminates. Black Crows built it on a paulownia and poplar wood core, which is light, lively, and energetic. We really like how they also laid it up with layers of multi-directional fiberglass and carbon fiber, giving the ski a stiff and powerful feel that's hard to find in other touring skis.
