The Blizzard Black Pearl 82 SP skis with TPC 10 Bindings is a women-specific all-mountain setup designed for intermediate to advanced skiers who spend the majority of their time on groomed and hard-packed terrain but want a bit of added versatility from their skis in order to handle some softer snow. Not as wide as the 88 and not as narrow as the 78, the Black Pearl 82 sits squarely in the middle of the lineup as the "wide carving ski". It retains plenty of torsional stiffness and is very nimble edge to edge, but it is wide enough to use if things get softer. A slight rocker profile in the tip and tail provides some great forgiveness and maneuverability, allowing for easy edge release when needed. The core construction of this ski makes it much less demanding overall and makes it much more forgiving, particularly in softer snow. While it's certainly not a floater, it is wider than a true frontside carving ski, so you essentially get no loss of edge hold and on trail performance while gaining some additional capabilities when it comes to handling variable snow. A generous sidecut on these skis helps them create a shorter turn radius for skiers that prefer making shorter turns or who enjoy a really dynamic ski experience at higher speeds. Women who want a powerful, yet forgiving ski that provides confidence inspiring edge hold and easy handling will love the Blizzard Black Pearl 82 SP with TPC 10 Bindings.

Measure yourself in Centimeters.
If you are a beginner you will want the skis up to the Chin. Therefore you would measure the height from the ground up to your chin in Centimeters. You would then choose the closest available size that matches that number.
Intermediate: you will follow the same rule as above but measure up to the nose
Expert: Follow the rule above but up to the middle of the forehead!
