BLACK C ROWS Atris Birdie
AVG. 3.93 $800 SCORE
D: 136-108-123 R: 20M (169) L: 160, 169, 178 STRENGTH: Overall Impression WEAKNESS: Quickness This was the first year the Chamonix brand entered our SKI Test melee, marking its success breaking into the U.S. market. (Its brilliant “soft launch” campaign was to send free skis to all the rad local Jackson bros a few years back.) Our team of discriminating testers were impressed, deeming the Atris Birdie a strong contender and awarding it a No. 2 score in Overall Impression. It’s floaty, stable, grippy, confidence inspiring, and fun. “Playful, dynamic, and versatile,” said Greene.
