Technical info:
Atris Birdie is one of the Black Crows models that are made at Elan´s factory. The construction is light, and measured in relation to the surface area, this is the test's lightest ski. A lot of taper in the front ski, while not so much in the back. The Atris has a proper tail and a pronounced rocker in the tip. The sidecut is sharper in the back ski than in the front. The ski is soft, especially in the tip.

On snow:
The Black Crows are large enough to be proper freeride skis, but still narrow enough to perform well on the trail. The test team likes the Atris a lot and some of us rank it right at the top. It is playful and stable at the same time . “A perfect allround ski", is one of the comments. It scores a lot of points both inside and outside the groomed slopes. The only rawback is that there are even more extreme powder skis that are better on top days.
