For skiers that don't need two feet of pow to have a good time, the Black Crows Captis Ski makes the most of any condition with a versatile midfat waist and playful rocker profile that will smear turns and scrub speed, but still rail an aggressive turn down groomed runs and hardpack when you need it to. While the Captis boasts a design that thrives within the confines of the resort, the 90mm waist width will excel both on and off piste, so you can expand your playground across the entire mountain. Admittedly, there's nothing revolutionary about a rockered ski with a midfat waist, but the way the Captis is built does make it a well-rounded option playful freeskiers and aggressive all-mountain rippers will appreciate. For starters, the Captis has an approachable flex that intermediates and advanced skiers will find easy to handle and surprisingly stable at speed. The tight 18-meter radius keeps the ski highly maneuverable in narrow chutes and tight trees, while a happy medium of moderate camber underfoot and rocker in the tips and tails helps keep things stable when you point 'em straight down wide-open aprons and steep groomers. The semi-cap construction helps keep the swing weight low, but still utilizes ABS sidewalls for the durability and stability necessary to charge down the entire mountain with confidence. The 90mm waist tracks easily from edge to edge, but won't leave you feeling outmatched when you encounter chopped crud, boot-top pow, or smooth corn once things start to warm up come spring.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
