They say

From pow to packed snow and anything inbetween, this ski will make any turn shape at any speed in any terrain effortless. Women’s specific design construction combine to deliver a confidence inspiring, elevated skiing experience.

We say

This new offering from Blizzard is a real powerhouse! As soon as the first turn is made its stiff flex gets noticed, get up some speed and crank the edges over and it delivers very high levels of grip and a sense that speed isn’t really something that’s going to worry this ski. The powerful construction and generous 102mm underfoot means that it’s perfectly set up for big fast turns on open faces. At slower speeds, in shorter turns that strong construction works more against it and it feels pretty hard work, the heavier weight making it slower for quick rotary moves.

Tester Comments

Natasha Edwards
Looks nice! Needs an open face with deep powder to work well.
Eilidh McLeod
This would be a great ski for big turns on open steep powdery faces, not versatile enough in varying conditions.
