The beloved Black Crows Anima returns for the winter of 2019 with a graphic update, but no structural changes. Which is good, because the wide and stable Anima has always been an excellent weapon for big mountain skiers. Despite its 115mm waist and generous tip and tail rocker, the Anima can't be pigeonholed as just a deep snow animal. It excels in untracked powder, of course--but also handles variable or firm conditions with stability, energy, and playfulness. Tracked-out bowls? This thing powers through them. Tight trees? Quick turn initation is a breeze on the surfy, rockered-up Anima. I've never been disappointed on the Black Crows Anima, and I have a hard time imagining it disappointing you.
