2020 Blizzard Black Pearl 88

The blue 2020 Blizzard Black Pearl 88.

The Black Pearl 88 may not be on top this year, but it still rips. Testers praised the Black Pearl for its dependability on groomers and in the crud. Blizzard’s women-specific technology in the lightweight sandwich construction, soft flex, and friendly turning radius continue to make this a ski that will change many women’s lives. Our testers just wished the uni-directional carbon layer in the ski didn’t make the Black Pearl 88 so single-minded. 

STRENGTHS: Hard Snow, Stability at Speed

WEAKNESS: Versatility
