Black Crows Atris Skis Now On Sale

This Ski Is A Staff Favorite:

By Zack
What a fantastically well rounded ski, and another ski that was part of our famous Wolf Creek adventure. This was my ski of choice for when the ski area had only reported 3 inches, but we were pleasantly surprised by about a foot. As I have stated in a few other reviews, anything is going to be fun in a foot of snow as long as it is wide enough and has some rocker. This ski felt wider than what it actually is in deep snow and I have also had the chance to take it out on harder snow days earlier in the season, and I was quite impressed. I wouldn't lie to you, there is definitely some chatter at the highest of speeds but really no loss of edge hold. This could be a quiver of one for someone who spends 80% of their time off the groomed trails. The ski shines most in tight turning scenarios like moguls and trees. Also, when choosing a size for this ski, do not be afraid to size up just a bit. I normally am most comfortable in the upper 170's as far as length goes and I rocked the 184cm with ease.

As a freeride-oriented skier with a lust for powder, I feel like I’m always on a quest to find a mid-fat all-mountain ski that’s playful and surfy enough for soft snow and smooth and stable enough to bust crud or rip carves. I don’t like noodle skis, but I’m not a hulking ex-racer looking for a pure bomber. I dare say— the Atris gets me. Like, more than any ski (or woman) ever has. At Wolf Creek, the ski floated, sprayed, and slashed through trees in two-plus feet (yeehaw!) of fresh storm snow. Then it popped off cornices and cliffs. Then it laid smooth trenches on packed trails. Then it—ok, I’ll stop. I think you get the point.

2018 Black Crows Atris Review:

The ever-versatile Atris returns for 2018 slightly evolved. With Double Beak Rocker and Progressive Sidecut to complement medium camber underfoot, the Atris still pivots on a dime and floats better than most skis at this waist width. It's playful and delightfully surfy. The updates? Black Crows sought to make the Atris even more reliable and stable at high speeds and in variable snow conditions. It's always been a smooth ski, but with a more progressive rise in the tail, an extended sidecut radius, and a slightly softer flex, the Atris now does what it always did--but better. The ski not only survives the hard-snow cruise back to the lift or the variable alpine descent, but it offers a fine-tuned ride. Forgiving enough to be a one-ski all-mountain quiver in the West for a variety of skiers, accessible enough to be a full-on powder ski for light-core rippers, and aggressive and reliable enough to charge the hairiest terrain on the hill.
