OnTheSnow tested the Blizzard Black Pearl as part of its women’s All-Mountain Front Category, awarding it an Editors’ Choice.

Veteran tester Rodman dubs the Black Pearl “best in show for all categories,” and indeed, testers awarded it high scores across the board with chart-topping scores for versatility. The 88-mm-waisted ski features Blizzard’s Flipcore Technology, which creates tip and tail rocker and slight camber underfoot without bending the ski. “Float, glide, ride, rip and carve are in this ski’s repertoire,” says Kelly.
