2019 Black Crows Skis Preview

Check out our preview of 2020 Black Crows skis. Highlights from the 2019 Black Crows skis lineup: Let Me Take You Higher That's what the sidewall reads on last year's Camox Freebird alpine touring ski by Black Crows, and it holds some double meaning for the company—if you haven't witnessed the Black Crows explosion at a ski resort near you, chances are you will soon.

Uphilling. It sounds like a fancy term for sidestepping your way back up a ski slope after you lose a ski. Or a trendy term for some god-awful workout regimen. Don’t worry. It’s way better.

And it costs little to nothing. Sold? Here are five tips to help you start your uphill career: 1.

2019 Black Crows Camox Freebird Description:

Returning for 2019 with some subtle, yet noteworthy changes the Camox Freebird is a champion for someone who prizes a versatile backcountry ski. The ski has been lightened this year due to a shorter ABS section, but the same poppy and playful feel remains. The ski now clocks in with a 96mm waist instead of last years 97mm, and the overall performance in less that stellar conditions has improved. The camber with rocker in the tip and tail remains, but the tail rocker is still minimal compared to the tip, ensuring solid contact with the snow while skinning. The Camox Freebird is one of the best options on the market as a do it all touring ski. Check a pair out this season, and join the crows!

Rocker:Freeride Rocker
Ability Level:Ability Level 7
Construction:Partial Sidewall
