Black Diamond makes its philosophy about women's skis pretty clear: a women's ski shouldn't be a watered-down version of a men's ski--the chassis should have an equal-performing design. With that in mind, the Women's Crescent Ski has proportional stiffness from tip to tail and a flex that offers all the available power a female backcountry skier will need. The Crescent snaps quick turns in tight terrain, planes up on top of deep snow, and feels light underfoot on the skin track and off. This is a touring ski for the ladies, and it doesn't leave anything on the design-room floor.
