I had always heard that Black Crows skis were so versatile because they were designed in Chamonix, where there's so much vertical that it might be snowing hard at the top of a run, but raining by the time you get to the bottom. Since the conditions change so much in one run, the skis must handle powder just as well as the ice. I didn't get a chance to ski them in Chamonix, but I did experience the versatility first hand when I used the Navis at St. Anton in Austria. I was blown away with how well the ski adjusted to the changing conditions. At the top of the mountain it was stormy, and the skis easily pushed above the soft snow to make playful turns. By the time I got midway down, the snow began to get choppy and crusty--but the Navis was still stiff enough to push through the choppy snow for a stable ride. At the bottom of the mountain, the snow turned to a mix of ice and slush. Since the ski has a mostly flat tail, there was plenty of edge for me to dig into the snow to make carving turns that felt damp and controlled.

2020 Black Crows Navis Description:

With the slightly narrower Camox undergoing a redesign for 2020 to make it more playful and softer, the 102mm Navis now occupies a huge role in the Black Crows collection. It's the sorta-stiff, non-metal, wide-ish all-mountain ski everyone wants to try. Having carried Black Crows since they entered the North American market, we have spent ample time on their skis, so allow us to fill in the blanks for you: The Navis rips. Plentiful camber powers you in and out of carved turns, and there is remarkable groomer performance here for a 102mm-waisted ski with no metal. That variable snow performance makes the Navis a go-to pick for aggressive skiers who attack steep fall lines. When it snows, the power in these skis doesn't make them clunky. Rather, they surf and slash smoothly, making them as strong in the trees and bowls as they are down alpine chutes. Strong freeride-type skier with resort and backcountry needs? Get a pair of these for your in-bounds adventures and a pair of the Navis Freebirds for the backcountry. Check and check.
