The Blizzard Black Pearl 88 returns for 2022 with an entire makeover; new construction, new shape, and new look. BP 88 has been one of the best selling ladies' skis on the market, and it has earned this pedigree because it is one of very best All Day, Every Day ladies' skis available on the market, and a perennial magazine test favorite. But now, this newest version is all about more control, and a smoother feel, thanks to the all new TrueBlend Wood core.
Handcrafted in Mittersill Austria, Blizzard's ski building gurus have designed a new core construction that places higher density, stiffer wood laminations in the center of the ski, for superior stability, power and edge grip. Then, moving to the ends of the ski, progressively softer, and less dense wood laminations are used, resulting in super easy turn initiation and release from edge to edge. The overall feel is very, very smooth and amazingly easy to ski on.
The geometry/shape of the new Black Pearl 88 has been changed also. The ski's tip has been widened slightly, decreasing the turn radius, and adding just a bit more flotation off trail. This unique combination of width, rocker profile, and lady specific TrueBlend Wood Core technology, make it very, very difficult to have a bad day on this ski. If you are looking for the one ski quiver, perfect all mountain ski, most versatile, (we like to call it an All Day, Every Day ski), or whatever its label, this is the one!
The Black Pearl 88 includes Blizzard's lady specific construction. A single Ti sheet under the binding area offers fantastic edge grip and stability. Titanal underfoot increasing torsional (twisting) stiffness and helps control vibration for a very smooth ride and great edge hold. Full length ABS sidewalls enhance the performance of this ski by providing a suspension system for the edges. Very smooth, very stable, and very grippy when the snow surface is harder.
Yes, the newest Black Pearl 88 skis even better in deeper snow, and yes it turns even better on the groomers. But, for those areas where new snow and smooth groomer gets skied out quickly, this ski absolutely rocks it because it turns even tighter, and easier in bumps and trashy afternoon conditions. When your favorite runs are all bumped out, the Black Pearl 88 is the killer ride, and it doesn't even mind much when it gets a bit slick. For most of us, groomers are the majority of our ski days, and the Black Pearl 88 loves to carve it up on the corduroy too, with quite a high speed limit. With rocker at tip and tail, and TrueBlend Wood Core storing rebound energy, these babies are super fun edge to edge.
