Blizzard Black Pearl 98 (2020)
The Blizzard Black Pearl 98 is a ski that can float through powder, bust through chopped up crud, and arc turns on the groomers. This ski was built for the ladies that demand something extra out of a ski. The slight rocker lines in the tip and tail give the ski ample float, but the full sidewalls combined with the race inspired tip shape give the ski an unmatched edge hold. You can feel confident in the harshes conditions! Carbon Flipcore W.S.D. is a special carbon fibre construction that makes the ski feel incredibly damp and stable without adding too much ridgidity. This is the ski that will let you ski how you want through any terrain!
Gnomes Comments: This ski doesn't back down from anything! For strong intermediate through advanced skiers, you won't find many options this versatile.

Carbon Flipcore W.S.D
Uni-directional carbon layer integrated into a light sandwich construction to ensure lightness, stability, smooth ex and torsional rigidity.
Ski profile with rocker at the tip and tail, camber in the middle. Reducing the pressure on the edge at the tip and tail makes the ski even easier to handle and increases flotation on powder snow. The camber guarantees great grip on packed snow.
Technology specifically studied to meet the particular needs of modern freeride and all mountain skiers. Reduced weight thanks to the bamboo and ISOcore cores.
Sandwich Compound Sidewall, Carbon Flipcore W.S.D
Full sidewalls guarantee energy transmission, stability and control and provide torsional rigidity enhancing the performance of the ski. Sidewall provides constant pressure along the full length of the ski.
Duratec is the use of a thicker textured surface combined with maximum edge radius and aluminum tip protectors to contribute to the durabilty and longevity of your skis.
Shape - Freeride All Mountain Woman
A traditional wide frontside sidecut with a carving bias radius (14-15m @166cm). Forward mounting position results in easier turn initiation.
