How's this for a recommendation: on our company powder-chasing trips, we always bring multiple pairs of the Black Crows Nocta. Everybody wants to ski it, so one isn't enough. It's up there with the K2 Pon2oon as our favorite deep day board, and the Nocta is more or less unsinkable. On a powder day at Wolf Creek, it popped off cornices and small cliffs, surfed our favorite untracked hike-to lines, and pivoted with playful ease through the Wolf's famous numbered chutes. Even in chopped up snow the day after a storm, the Nocta powered through without getting deflected, and its massive surface area kept me floating like a cork. On the best days of the season, the Nocta is the only friend you need.

This is perhaps my favorite powder day ski. I skied it at Wolf Creek on a powder day and a skied up powder day. On day with deep fresh snow it performed exceptionally well. It was super poppy off jumps and small cliff drops and skied the fresh snow with ease. The soft flex and twin tip tail made it really playful, turning the mountain into a playground.
The next day, things were skied up a bit. Normally I would have gone down to something skinnier but I stuck with the Nocta to test it's chops. I was really surprised how well it still skied. It was still really fun in the skied up trees and on a groomer or two. It's a relatively lightweight ski which really helps it to turn quickly and stay nimble.
All in all, a great ski that I'll continue to use on dream days.

I reached for the Nocta at Wolf Creek on a stormy powder day in two feet of fresh. By day's end, I was fighting to keep myself from buying it. Yeah, all skis are fun in pow, but the Nocta made me feel nigh invincible straight-lining and surfing down tree shots. Impressive float. For its size, it's surprisingly playful and poppy. Also, to whom it may concern, the Nocta stomps landings like a boss and stands out as your buddies snap pictures of your faceshots.

2020 Black Crows Nocta Description:

Planning a powder-cation to Japan or British Columbia? Treating yourself to a cat skiing or heli trip? The Nocta should be at the top of your list. At 122mm underfoot with a full rocker profile, this ski is purpose-built to float you down the deepest lines of your life. The Nocta is super surfy and maneuverable in tight places, but it retains enough backbone to straightline big, open lines. That versatility is actually why we often recommend the skis as a fresh-snow quiver member for any Western skier. It doesn't require 20-plus inches of snow to be fun. It will have you hooting and hollering even in ankle deep pow.
