We all have our white whale, yours is just bigger, whiter, and snowier than most--we're talking about mountains, by the way. Chamonix-based Black Crows shares your obsession with skiing every day and it knows that means having a harpoon in your quiver that will pierce everything from groomers and bumps to the hardpack and slush you'll encounter off-piste on any given day. If the mountain is your white whale, consider the Camox Ski the vessel by which you'll slay that big white beast. The Camox's mid-fat waist, semi-cap construction, and progressive Double Rocker profile lends itself well to all-mountain slaying. A 97mm waist width is narrow enough to roll from edge-to-edge on groomers, but plenty wide enough to hold its own off-piste on harder, days-old snow. Camber underfoot and tip and tail rocker make the ski stable, yet playful whether you're carving down the frontside, or skiing chalky chutes on the backside. If you're familiar with the Black Crows lineup, then you'll recognize a lot of similarities between the Camox and the Atris. In fact, the Camox is a scaled-down version of the Atris with playful poplar core and carbon, KEVLAR stringers to stiffen the ski up. Like the Atris, the semi-cap construction consists of rigid ABS sidewalls underfoot that taper into a cap construction in the tip and tail for reduced swing weight, as well as a slightly more forgiving feel, which is good when you're skiing in conditions that will swallow you whole if you mess up.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
