Blizzard Black Pearl 88 Skis - Women's 2024

The Blizzard Black Pearl 88 Skis have been a fan favorite for many years, and there's no sign of a letup. Smooth, balanced, and supremely capable in variable conditions, they offer a versatile ride that won't let you down on firmer snow, or at faster speeds. And that's not all. This year the Black Pearl 88 has been redesigned with input from Blizzard's trailblazing Women 2 Women project, engineered with a women's specific TrueBlend Flipcore layup that allows you to squeeze the juice out of every run.

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.

Core

TrueBlend W.S.D. CoreTrueBlend core of Beech with seven stringers of Poplar, tailor-made for each length of ski, using lighter Women's Specific Design woods.

Laminates

W.S.D. Carbon-Reinforced Fiberglass

Two-Piece W.S.D. Titanal Laminate for Grip and StabilityNo longer a single sheet of Titanal, the 2025 Black Pearl uses a two-piece laminate with a sheet of fiberglass in between the layers. The upper layer of metal resembles the shape of the FluxForm Titanal layer in the Sheeva skis and the lower layer fills in the gap in the center.

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

Additional Features

Women 2 WomenThe Blizzard Women 2 Women program is dedicated to creating a diverse and inclusive environment where ALL women feel a sense of belonging - on the hill, in the mountains, at the shop or wherever their skiing and outdoor adventures take them.

Binding Compatibility

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

Look Pivot 12 GW Ski Bindings 2025

The classic Look Pivot 12 GW Ski Bindings are the go-to choice of committed skiers worldwide, and known for their reliability and consistency of release. Look's elasticity is the best in the business, the turntable heel offers bombproof lateral security, and the shortened mounting pattern lets the ski flex as freely as possible. If classic design and superior retention are important to you, the few dollars more you'll spend for the Pivot 12 won't warrant a second thought.

Product Details

Toe Piece

180˚ Multi-Directional ReleaseA true mechanical upward release that functions independently from the heel for the most effective multi-directional protection in the case of a fall.

Full Action Toe | 45 mm ElasticityFeaturing 45mm of elastic travel and 180⁰ multi-directional release, the Full Action toe piece delivers best-in-class retention and release and increased coupling strength (boot-to-binding interface) for maximum power transmission.

Dual Standard Concept (ISO 5355 Alpine and Gripwalk)Look strategically reinforced the toe housing, increased the toe ramp, elongated the toe-wings, and created a toe that is compatible with both ISO 5355 Alpine and GripWalk soles.

Toe Lateral Elasticity45 mm

Heel Piece

Turntable HeelLook’s unique turntable design rotates directly under the tibia for reduced risk of injury and provides 28mm of elastic travel to deliver unmatched shock absorption for significant reduction of pre-release.

28mm Vertical Elasticity28mm of elasticity in the heel (the most of any binding on the market) yields a reduction in unwanted pre-releasing.

Additional Features

Smaller Mounting ZoneThe shortest mounting zone of any alpine binding available provides less swing weight, improved response, and a deeper, rounder, more consistent ski flex.

7 Points of ContactMore points-of-contact with the boot results in increased lateral energy transmission, drives more power to the edge of the ski and provides superior control, response, and snow feel.

Ski Compatibility

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