The Venor is a super fun all mountain that works well for someone who wants a fun poppy ski. I tend to not like stiff flat tailed all mountain skis and prefer something like this that is a bit softer and more playful. At Winter Park on a warm spring day this ski excelled - it was perhaps the best bump ski I've ever been on, with it's full sidewall it still held a great edge on groomers, and it was super nimble in the trees. For someone who wants a stiff ski with maximum edge hold this isn't the right style. But for people who like to play around on the mountain with a mix of carving, bumps, jumps, trees, and basically everything then the Venor is, as the French would say, fantastique.

2015 Black Crows Venor Description:

The 2015 Venor from Black Crows is a highly reviewed park and pipe ski. It's stiff enough for hard landings yet soft enough to butter and not catchy at all on rails. It's light to turn easily in all conditions. This ski was enthusiastically developed by Julien Regnier. It is slightly wider and stiffer than the Viator. It's built from poplar and beech wood with a complex mix of biaxial and triaxial glass fibers. Black Crows uses a sidewall construction which makes the ski more dynamic and resistant. The beech gives the ski rebound and rigidity. Poplar is a much lighter wood. It balances the ski and spreads the weight throughout the ski. This mix makes for a ski with a balanced flex, neither too hard nor too soft for jibbing, nose and tail presses, and for jumping over big boxes. The Venor is a traditional park ski. It has a small rocker which gives it a good spin and a fairly compact sidecut. This makes it easy to turn even for people who are still developing skills. From laidback skiers to overexcited freestylers, the Venor's pop and precision make it a perfect play mate.
