The Blizzard Black Pearl 82 is a women-specific all-mountain ski designed for intermediate to advanced skiers who spend the majority of their time on groomed terrain yet want a bit of added versatility from their skis. Not as wide as the 88 and not as narrow as the 78, the Black Pearl 82 sits right in the middle of the lineup as the "wide carving ski". It retains a lot of torsional stiffness and is very nimble edge to edge, but it is wide enough to use if things get a bit softer as well. A subtle rocker profile in the tip and tail provides some great forgiveness and maneuverability so you won't feel locked into one turn shape. The core construction of this ski reduces how demanding the ski would be, given its shape, 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 doesn't come with the weight of full metal laminates will love the Blizzard Black Pearl 82.
Rocker Camber Rocker – 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.
W.S.D. (Woman Specific Design) Shape Concept – Traditional wide frontside sidecut with effortless radius. Forward mounting position for easy turn initiation.
W.S.D. Carbon Flipcore Technology – The famed Blizzard Flipcore process matches the core contour with the intended rocker profile so core and laminates act in harmony and don't require re-shaping in the mold.
Uni-Directional Carbon Frame
Sandwich Compound Sidewall – All Blizzard skis with the exception of some junior skis are built with ABS or Phenol sidewalls for superior performance (stability, power transmission, handling) and durability.
