2020 Blizzard Rustler 10

The 2020 Blizzard Rustler 10 resembles a blueberry in some ways.

The freeride-rooted Rustler 10 was a hoot for testers at Taos this year, taking on wide-open bowls and tight, steep tree runs with confidence nearing on reckless abandon. With ample rocker in the front and back, Carbon Flipcore DRT sandwiching a wood core, and uni-directional carbon inserts in the tip and tail, the Rustler 10 is a firework of a ski that left testers stoked. Not the best on groomers, but who needs those, anyway? 

STRENGTHS: Quickness, Playfulness

WEAKNESS: Crud
