We know, this ski always wins. But believe us, it’s for good reason—it’s been the top-selling ski across both men’s and women’s models for years running. It’s balanced, forgiving, strong, lightweight, and incredibly versatile for conditions, terrain, and ability levels. Blizzard overhauled it two years ago, making it lighter and stronger with a new carbon frame. Lay on it and trench, then instantly back off and feather it—it happily obliges. Truly a one-ski quiver.
