The Blizzard Black Pearl 97 Skis are one of the seven wonders of the ski industry. They’re strong, precise, and stable enough to satisfy the best skiers on the mountain, including several of our testers who identify as male and consider themselves strong skiers. They’re also easy enough to not intimidate skiers who don’t charge quite as hard and don’t spend their entire offseason in training. At 97mm underfoot, the Black Pearl 97 delivers a superb balance between groomed and fresh snow performance, and it’s plain to see why so many accomplished all-mountain skiers have made them their everyday ski.
