Technical info:
This pink ski is a slimmer touring version of Corvus, the model that originally put Black Crows on the map and one they have been fine-polishing ever since. It has a relatively soft flex curve, a lot of sidecut and a long setback, which makes it a lot wider in the front than in the back. The construction is light, but not extreme in any way.

On snow:
This is a 100% trustworthy ski. It feels heavy, in a positive way. The stability at speed is impeccable and it really absorbs the surface. Its floatation in powder is also as expected. Despite the short turning radius, it´s not particularly playful or easy to turn with. But together with the weight and solid maneuverability, this is a great choice if you are looking for a wide allround ski touring option. And if you are into pink.
