The all-terrain daily driver for those who want to ski through any conditions, the women's Blizzard Black Pearl 97 skis charge through chopped-up crud and make challenging snow conditions easier.


  • These skis combine input from the Blizzard Women to Women panel, real-world testing and next-level Austrian engineering
  • As the widest of the Black Pearl series, the platform allows you to ski big mountain conditions and softer snow—while still providing confidence and stability on hardpack
  • With TrueBlend Flipcore W.S.D. (Women's Specific Design), the Black Pearl 97 also carves groomers with perfection
  • Versatile sidecut and a reduced rocker profile keep you skiing confidently, even on less-than-perfect days
  • TrueBlend Woodcore precisely controls flex throughout the length of the ski, with a softer tip and tail that keep you nimble, whichever size you ride
  • Denser wood underfoot acts like a gas pedal, giving you power and drive when you want to charge
  • Each ski length uses the same core but is constructed differently for balanced flex, which allows skiers to maneuver through variable terrain and conditions with less effort
