Coming from the mean streets of Chamonix, Black Crows is making killer skis that push the envelope just enough to keep things interesting. Exhibit 1A is the Navis Ski, which is a reasonably traditional all-mountain charger that's been tweaked in a few key spots to make it a little more versatile and fun. Wanting to blend stability with quickness, Black Crows built it with a semi-cap construction that employs ABS sidewalls that taper to a cap construction toward the tip and tail, giving you tons of edge bite underfoot with a quick, poppy feel in the extremities. This construction works in concert with Black Crows' single beak and a half rocker profile to give the Navis a solid feel in variable snow, float in pow, and quickness in tight spots, so you can rally the whole mountain without sweating the small stuff. Black Crows also built the Navis with a poplar wood core, which is light and energetic, and laid it up with multiple layers of fiberglass to keep things stable as a table when you're maching through chunder or hitting big lines at high speeds. The tip and tail have gentle taper, which prevents them from hanging up when you're riding in soft snow, so you can throw 'em sideways like bigger powder boards without worrying about getting bucked like you're trying out for the rodeo.

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.
