Blizzard Sheeva 10 ski review, 2017/2018 women's Big Mountain Category, from our equipment experts at Realskiers.com powered by Masterfit.

Blizzard's new Sheeva 10 is built on the same frame as the men’s Rustler 10, another example of the overlap between made-for-women design and state-of-the-art specs for unisex Big Mountain skis. The defining structural components are the same: a compound core made mostly of various lightweight woods, fiberglass/carbon laminates above and below, capped with D.R.T. Titanal®. The D.R.T. business refers to a single Titanal sheet that runs edge to edge underfoot but tapers to blunt ends before reaching the rockered tip and tail. The metal amplifies edge grip without inhibiting flexibility, allowing the Blizzard Sheeva 10 to remain stable without requiring the skier to ride at a high edge angle or exert a lot of energy. The Sheeva 10 is blessed with a large performance envelope, able to make slinky, short turns at low speed, rhythmic, round medium turns or barn-burner GS turns without skipping a beat. Women from a broad band of skill levels could climb onto Blizzard's Sheeva 10 and feel comfortable right away. “Easy to ski yet held a turn well,” said Mary Geddes. “Stable but playful.”
