Edging into the race scene.

They may be known for their terrain-crushing big mountain sticks, but Black Crows decided to pay homage to the aggressive resort ripper with their new slarve-happy Arto Ski. This speedy carve machine boasts a narrow 68mm waist, with a cambered profile intended for laying trenches on bulletproof hardpack.

The double Titanal layer enhances power and efficiency while you're slicing and dicing your way down steep faces, with a beech and ash wood core that ensures a smooth, consistent flex. Full sidewalls let you easily hop from edge to edge and the long turn radius was made for huge slalom turns. Who knows, maybe you'll be inspired to don a race bib and throw it back to your gate bashing days.

Recommended Sizing Guide

Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preferred style of skiing. For example, an expert skier in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
