Black Crows Anima Skis 2019

For the modern big mountain skier, few skis deliver the confidence and excitement of the Black Crows Anima Skis. Built for stability in the steepest, most intimidating terrain, the Anima lets you run full-throttle while the dual rocker and progressive tip rise retain maneuverability for last second corrections and turn shape changes. Eager to rip the gnarliest lines your mountains have to offer, the Black Crows Anima Skis are the hard-charging pow-day weapon that you'll find yourself reaching for even when the snow report indicates they only got a couple inches overnight.

Salomon S​/Lab Shift MNC Alpine Touring Ski Bindings 2020

News of the Salomon S/Lab Shift MNC Alpine Touring Ski Bindings struck the ski industry like a bolt from the blue last season. A totally new concept developed from scratch by Salomon athlete Cody Townsend and binding designer Benoit Sublet, the Shift toe piece changes from a low profile conventional toe in ski mode to a fully "pinned" tech toe for skinning. The binding feels like a lighter, lower Warden 13 going downhill, then lets you engage your tech-toed boot to smoothly skin uphill. With a weight of 865 grams per binding, the Shift is a remarkable advance in both skiing and touring performance relative to frame AT bindings, and a very viable choice for those who want to ski lift-served terrain and true backcountry on a single setup.
