Raven - Blemish
*DISCOUNT CODES CAN NOT BE USED... they're already crazy cheap!
Designed and developed 100% by Eric Hjorleifson, the Raven carries the spirit of its namesake. Its light and free spirited and welcomes adventure from the gladed trees to the steep and exposed alpine terrain. It's unique reverse camber allows you to drive the ski underfoot vs. pressuring the tips like a traditionally cambered ski. The result is tips that automatically rise out of the pow and enable the ski to pivot with ease in deep and inconsistent snow conditions. Take it to an open bowl and let’er run, or if you prefer to live in the woods take a tour into the tight trees and marvel in how quick and snappy you can be. You don’t have to work hard to ski this ski, save your strength to go further.

BLEMISH SKI DETAILS
These 2019/20 season skis are brand new with a subtle cosmetic defect in the graphic for example a small part of the top or base graphic is slightly off center. These cosmetic blemishes have no effect on the ski's performance or durability. We CAN NOT inform you of what the specific blemish is on a particular ski, but most of the time you won't even be able to find it.
These are the best deals in skiing!
The Stash is the only place you will ever find our skis sold at discounted prices due to irregularities in the graphic, being out of it's original packaging or slightly used. However just like our full priced skis, they are all backed by our One Year Warranty and Money Back Guarantee. These prices are insanely low, so they sell out fast. If you see something you like, we suggest you grab it now before it's gone!
These Raven ski’s are awesome. They are very light weight and the design is super cool! I’m really looking forward to shredding this season. Hurry up snow!

Raven is gonna help me fly
When I first got the skis I was really impressed with the craftsmanship. Full disclosure... I haven’t skied them yet but expect the performance to be on par with the quality of the build.
Great touring ski
Just back from maiden 4 day Backcountry tour in North Cascades. Skied variable terrain and conditions from corn to heavy mash. Skis were ez and predictable in all conditions. In steep/icy areas, just make sure you've got margins to deal with a little less edge/stopping precision. Great ride-will be my go to driver
Read the reviews here and the detailed reviews at Blister and Backcountryskiingcanada.com - they are accurate. Hoji and 4Frnt have founds the magic formula in the Ravens. I have had my 2018/19 Ravens for almost 2 months and paired them with Shift bindings for a lightweight slackcountry setup. For me, these skis will see mostly sidecountry days with short uphill touring laps (30-90min each), steep descents, and mostly soft snow/powder. That said I have skied these in all snow conditions from inbound groomers, high elevation wind-scoured/icy steeps, crust/crud, trees/bumps, and deep powder. "Versatile" is probably the word that comes to mind - these skis do it all and do it well. But don't think that versatile means these are watered down. Point them straight and they fly with forgiving balance and stability. The light/poppy feel amps up the fun factor in the steeps and trees. The profile and mount point make smearing turns and shedding speed fun and predictable when things get interesting. That this all comes in a ski light enough for dedicated backcountry touring duty - is another dash of Hoji magic. While these Ravens could realistically be my only skis, I do keep a pair of wider/heavier/stiffer skis for dedicated in-bound duty. I am 6'0" and 190lbs and went with 184s and factory mount point. No issues with the mount point as it probably suited my more centered stance anyway.
