If you see slow signs as just another feature to jump over on your way to the next pow stash, Black Crows gets you. Black Crows designed the Corvus Ski to be a playful freeride ski with the backbone of a big-mountain ski for all-mountain versatility. The end result is a ski that's stiff enough to handle variable conditions and playful enough to do more than just link tight turns down the mountain. A semi-cap construction combines ABS sidewalls with a capped top sheet for solid durability in a lightweight package, and it has fiberglass laminates above and below the energetic poplar core to increase torsional rigidity. The sidecut moves the widest point of the tips and tails back from either end towards the center, which results in less edge contact, making the ski easier to handle and more predictable when turning. But don't think the ski will suffer when you inevitably hit some hardpack, because with plenty of camber underfoot and just a slightly raised tail, the Corvus will still make big, GS-style turns down the frontside and scrub and pivot when the terrain demands it. A reinforced drilling zone underfoot ensures that bindings won't rip out when you finally stomp that 40-foot drop you've had your eye on all season.

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.
