The Blizzard Black Pearl skis combine stability underfoot with sassy rebound that will keep you having fun from fresh tracks to last lift.

  • The Blizzard Black Pearl skis excel off the beaten path, but they'll also lay down fast turns on groomed runs if given the chance
  • Women-specific skis feature a lightweight core and a flex pattern catered to hard-charging women
  • Wood core is constructed like a sandwich, layers upon layers of CNC-milled strips reinforce each other to create a lightweight, snappy ski with smooth and easy handling
  • Tip-and-tail rockered skis are constructed using a specialized technique called Flipcore that maximizes the natural flex of the ski materials
  • Instead of putting a ski together with standard camber and then pressing it into a rockered shape, Blizzard builds the skis into the finished shape before it is pressed
  • The standard shape of a cambered wood core is "flipped" upside down to naturally match the rockered shape of the finished skis
  • This results in equal and consistent pressure during construction and a noticeable difference how the skis perform
  • In brief, Flipcore rocker reduces the floppiness and chatter of skis on hard snow at high speeds and enhances the skis performance in soft snow
  • Slight camber underfoot assists with grip on hardpack
  • Fiberglass reinforcement laid in 4 separate directions increases snapiness and power underfoot
  • Sidewalls offer direct power transmission, resulting in quick side-to-side response
  • Requires bindings with wide brakes
  • Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo

Recommended rider weights are a general guideline. Please keep in mind that additional factors can affect which size will best suit your needs. If you have questions regarding ski and snowboard sizing, please contact us at 1-800-426-4840.
