Look into the Black Crows Orb Ski and see a future filled with deep carves, fast turns, and aggressive all-mountain charging materialize from the misty realm of the fifth dimension. Designed for skiers with a no-holds-barred approach to skiing, the Orb caters to freeskiers with a background in ski racing. With moderate camber underfoot and a flat tail, this ski excels on groomed runs and hardpack, but that's not say that it isn't afraid to pin the throttle down wind-buffed bowls and tight chutes, either. The ski's powerful and energetic flex comes courtesy of a poppy poplar core and stiff titanal laminates, which give the ski a high-performance feel when you're blasting down frontside groomers or mobbing down chopped crud. Speaking of chopped crud, Black Crows threw in an early rise tip to increase float and add some extra lift with you're testing off-piste conditions. With a 91mm waist, the Orb is by no means a powder ski or dedicated carver, but more of an all-mountain ripper that will make the most of just about any condition you encounter when the last big storm was weeks ago.

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.
