The Blizzard Black Pearl 82 Skis are like a perfect cookie. Not too crispy, not too chewy, and above all sweet and delicious. This freshly baked freeride ski is a pure delight of well-balanced perfection. With a flex that's mellow and approachable, but still stout enough to lay down a mean carve, plus a profile that gives you great performance on and off the piste. Born out of a need for something in between the skinniest and mid waisted options in the Black Pearl line, we find that for a lot of skiers, the 82 is juuust right.
