You can't really call it a cult following, because it's no secret: the Blizzard Black Pearl 88 Skis have been killing it as the world's best-selling all-mountain ride for years, and there's no sign of a letup. Extremely versatile performance with plenty of guts for harder snow and faster speeds, but no "tractability" penalty are just a few of the reasons this ski is on everyone's top five list. Every year we think we have plenty, and then we sell out...

Rocker Camber Rocker – Ski profile with rocker at the tip and tail, camber in the middle. Reducing the pressure on the edge at the tip and tail makes the ski even easier to handle and increases flotation on powder snow. The camber guarantees great grip on packed snow.
TrueBlend W.S.D. Core – TrueBlend core of Beech with seven stringers of Poplar, tailor-made for each length of ski, using lighter Women's Specific Design woods.
W.S.D. Carbon-Reinforced Fiberglass
W.S.D. Titanal Laminate for Grip and Stability
Sandwich Compound Sidewall – All Blizzard skis with the exception of some junior skis are built with ABS or Phenol sidewalls for superior performance (stability, power transmission, handling) and durability.
