Looking for a good time? Dial 1-800-Blazer. There wasn’t a tester who didn’t have fun on this ski, calling it an amiable playmate just about everywhere on the mountain. While they certainly didn’t have to, ladies found they could pressure the Blazer to step up its game and it willingly obliged. With a metal mounting plate but no metal in the core, the Blazer isn’t as comfortable in the crud or powder as her big sister, the Rallybird Ti, but the lighter swing weight makes her more accessible to intermediates.

STRENGTHS: Forgiveness, Stability at Speed

WEAKNESSES: Flotation, Crud Performance
