The Black Crows Navis performed well in the Big Mountain category during our 2013 on snow ski test in Austria. The Navis is suitable for both male and female skiers and would suit experts looking to ski mostly off-piste.

Overall Score

Black Crows are based in Chamonix, France, the European capital of Freeride skiing and home to some of the world’s best big mountain skiers.

It’s a small but growing company owned by people passionate about off-piste skiing – we skied with one of the owners on our 2013 ski test in Austria and tested the Navis, a ski marketed for both men and women.

Although Black Crows has a touch of humour about their approach, what we discovered was that the Navis was a very serious ski indeed. It scored highly in the Big Mountain category and score wise, fell into second place overall.

It’s a strong, powerful ski suited to experts looking to explore challenging mountain terrain. It thrives on big open powder faces where it just loves to go fast and make big sweeping turns.

It also scored well on groomed slopes too, so getting home on a red run at the end of the day won’t be a chore.

The Navis would suit a male or female skier looking to spend lots of time skiing off-piste; and although not necessarily in Chamonix, they would certainly help you to fit in if it was.
