The Atris Birdie has been the queen of women's big mountain skis for several seasons now, and remains the reigning monarch after changes last year. Some die hard fans may be hesitant to embrace the change, but trust us when we say it's not a bad thing (in fact, we find it to be a very, very good thing). The new Atris Birdie is more versatile in variable conditions and quicker to turn, but still keeps its inherent nature of being a playful ski that you can easily charge with. Black Crows adjusted the rocker profile in the tip and tail by shortening the amount of rocker. Elongating the effective edge helps you bite into the snow a bit better, giving you a confidence inspiring, smoother ride. The narrower 105mm waist also is a bit easier to get over on edge, making the ski more responsive and stable if you find yourself on snow that's firmer than you might be hoping for. Overall, the updates make this ski more fun on those in between storm days, while keeping the same, killer soft snow performance that we've come to know and love from the Atris Birdie. We love it as a first powder ski for advanced-intermediates, and as an excellent mid fat ski to add to the quiver for our expert lady rippers.
