Product Info

One of our best selling women's skis last year, the Blizzard Black Pearl Skis are back for 2016 with only topsheet changes. An all mountain design that doesn't back down from hard snow or speed, the Black Pearl is a ski that will appeal to a wide variety of women from progressing intermediates to groomer-oriented experts. Pull this one up from Davy Jones' Locker and use it above the waterline where it's designed to be enjoyed, lass.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker Camber RockerSki 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.

Flex

Medium Flex

Shape

Tapered Tip & Tail

Core

Poplar-Bamboo Woodcore

FlipCore TechnologyWhile most ski companies start with a cambered core and bend it under heat and pressure in the mold to create rockered skis, Blizzard starts with a rockered, "flipped over" core that matches the ski's rocker profile in the first place. Make sense? It does to us.

Lite CoreSpecifically developed to meet the needs of modern Freeride, Touring, and Women All-Mountain skiers. This core provides a great strength to weight ratio thanks to Isocore and Bamboo elements.

Laminates

Titanal Binding Interface

Sidewalls

Sandwich Compound SidewallAll 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.

Base

Sintered Graphite Base

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Comments about Blizzard Black Pearl Skis - Women's 2016:

I used these for the first time last weekend. I am an intermediate/advanced skier. They handled really well on the freshly groomed runs of the morning as well as the mogully crud runs of the afternoon. Would highly recommend these skis.

Comments about Blizzard Black Pearl Skis - Women's 2016:

I tried these skis as a demo first and subsequently received them as a gift. These are fantastic skis that can handle anything. They're awesome on groomers, can handle ice well, you can turn easily since they're so light, and they can float in deep powder. They are super rigid so I did not enjoy them playing in the woods since they like to launch you when you hit some firm bumps. I was very impressed by how well they handled bowl skiing since they're not that wide.

    Comments about Blizzard Black Pearl Skis - Women's 2016:

    I have used the Black Pearls in all conditions during this year working on the slopes of Copper Mtn, CO. The Black Pearls are my dream for an all-mountain ski. VERY stable but lively. Carve beautifully as well as being capable of short quick turns. LOVE these skis. They are also good in powder to about 12-14."
