Skinnier than the other iconic Black Crows womens all mountain freeride options, the Captis Birdie is best suited for playful frontside skiing. It can cruise blues with the kiddos, shred mogul lines with the ski sisters, and carve sunny groomers with all the other ladies who pulled out the tutus and onesies for closing day. A bit lighter than the men's Captis and with a slightly softer flex, the Captis Birdie is a fantastic ski for advancing skiers because it's smooth and ski-able, yet it also has enough backbone to remain fun when you become a hard-charging expert. Lightning-quick and easy to pivot, the Captis Birdie shines in trees and bumps and has just enough rocker to float you up in soft snow. This ski remains a shop favorite among our lady rippers.
