Bizzard Zero G 95
Forget floppy carbon tips and soft ski chatter, the Blizzard ZeroG 95 is a damp race ski on a backcountry diet. This ski gets its chops from a super lightweight paulownia wood core with Carbon Drive technology, a uni-directional carbon frame that provides incredibly stiff torsional rigidity considering the ski’s flyweight boxing classification. The Zero G 95 is a great one-ski-wonder for any type of snow, but it truly stands out in steep, spring-corn conditions. [$700, blizzard-ski.com]
