The principal tweaks to the new Blizzard Black Pearl 98 are significant. Together, its shapelier sidecut and reduced front rocker enable the Black Pearl 98 to raise its game on hard snow. While the Black Pearl 98 is better adapted to groomers, its bliss still lies off piste where it never met a crud field it couldn’t conquer.

Women who can handle all terrain on a big mountain will gravitate toward the Black Pearl 98 as their everyday ski; for ladies who only occasionally foray off-trail, it makes a marvelous powder board. Liz Elling of Gravity Sports extolled the Black Pearl 98 as “Quick, easy; made lovely turns. Love the new changes they made!”
