With its almost symmetrical double rocker profile, versatile 90mm waist and slightly directional shape, the 2018 Black Crows Captis Birdie is a mega-versatile women’s all-mountain ski. Just as at home ripping the hardpack as they are in the trees or slaying a few inches of fresh powder, they’re perfect for anyone who wants to make use of all the side hits, rock drops and tree stumps the resort has to offer – I’d even go so far as to say they’d be perfect for venturing into the snow park. If you’re heading off to do a winter season and you just want to ski everything, pick up a set of Captis Birdies. The 90mm waist will provide quick edge to edge transfers and is an ideal width for intermediate to advanced skiers who want to experiment with different terrain. The rocker-camber-rocker profile of the Black Crows Captis Birdie will keep you afloat in the powder, hold an edge on the piste and feel springy off those side hits, while being easy to handle and steer in all conditions.

The poplar wood core combined with fibreglass reinforcements results in a ski that’s stable at speed while also providing a springy, medium flex tailored to a woman’s general weight and size. If you’re on the hunt for a nimble, lightweight ski for ripping around resort or if you want to jump around using the mountain’s natural terrain, the Captis Birdie is a worthy companion.
