However, the Corsa is not recommended for ice climbing, rugged mixed terrain, or for intense step chipping.

A snow tool like the Corsa is a great idea to bring on almost any steep mission or spring tour because it introduces safety in exposed terrain and is featherweight light. I say snow tool because the Corsa is all aluminum and will have a hard time swinging into ice. This is a good thing because if you're swinging into ice with a straight shafted tool, you should know that you're not in the right place. This tool provides a lot of safety while booting couloirs, traveling across exposed terrain, and topping out technical objectives. It's light enough that you won't leave it at home, which is the ultimate folly that most of us make. Get the shortest length because you'll be using it skiing, and not as a walking stick, you already have one of those in the form of a ski pole.
