It’s no small feat to please all women all the time, but Blizzard comes close with the Black Pearl 88. “Loved this ski! It was easy to turn and felt very stable. The edge hold at faster speeds was outstanding,” raved Skylar from Aspen Ski and Board of the Blizzard Black Pearl 88. Liz Elling of Gravity Sports chimed in similarly: “Carvy and easy to turn – love the new changes!”

The Black Pearl was already the best selling of all women’s skis in America when Blizzard upped the ante and made it even better. The 2018 Black Pearl 88 has a dollop more sidecut and a pinch less front rocker, so it hooks up a heartbeat earlier on hard snow. But while Blizzard's new Black Pearl shines on groomers, the ski really comes out of its shell when unleashed in the wild terrain off trail. The Black Pearl 88’s lower profile front rocker skis smoothly up a mogul’s backside, and the new shape snakes around trees with greater ease.
