Blizzard Black Pearl 88

“How did the Blizzard Black Pearl 88 become the #1 selling ski in America? By exceeding the expectations of both young and not-so-young, skilled and not-so-skilled, those happiest on groomers or in their bliss off-piste, that’s how. Its runaway popularity has made it the de facto standard in the most important women’s category.” (Real Skiers)

“This ski always wins and for a good reason. It’s been the top selling ski across both men’s and women’s models for years. It’s balanced, forgiving, strong, lightweight, and incredibly versatile for conditions, terrain, and ability levels. Blizzard overhauled it two years ago, making it lighter and stronger with a new carbon frame. Lay on it and trench, then instantly back off and feather it – it happily obliges. It’s truly a one-ski quiver.” (Powder Magazine)

Come to demo day and “ski for yourself.” Learn about the width, the cut, and the rocker-camber.  Our experts can match you up.
