Blizzard Black Pearl 88 Women


Bindings included? no


Use: 50% piste / 50% freeride


Ability: Intermediate


In a nutshell: A confidence bosting ski for women who want to push their limits.


We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Blizzard have really come up trumps with the Black Pearl series. And obviously a lot of women think so as it retains its title as the best-selling women’s ski on the market. This year’s model sees no major changes aside from some sleek new graphics (if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it), leaving it just as enjoyable and fun to ski as it was before. This ultra-versatile all-mountain ski is the weapon of choice for intermediate women who want a ski that’ll progress with them without losing its edge.


Also available in a 82mm and 98mm waist width, the Black Pearl 88 is the most versatile of the three, serving up a smooth and stable ride whether you’re enjoying first laps on a powder day or getting in some late afternoon piste runs. Ideally suited to resort skiing, the Black Pearl 88 boasts a rocker-camber-rocker profile that provides a healthy amount of bounce and nimbleness underfoot, and will keep you nicely afloat when the snow starts to fall. A mid-sized 11m radius means you can easily play around with your turn shapes and, coupled with the lightweight construction, you’ll never be left feeling like you can’t make it through tight trees or bumps when you need to.


The standout construction method of the Black Pearl is the women’s-specific Carbon Flipcore, which balances just the right amount of performance materials in the most lightweight combo possible, resulting in natural-feeling flex and unparalleled stability, even at high speeds. If you’re about to embark on your first winter season, the Blizzard Black Pearl 88 is a great ski to see you through the sea of changing weather and snow conditions. Like a friend for life, it’ll be fun to ski and super dependable no matter what the mountain throws at you.
