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.
