The Blizzard Black Pearl has been a top selling ski since its inception. The Black Pearl remains a fantastic ski for women looking for versatility and stability. This season the Black Pearl gets an update with a Women's Specific Design Carbon Flipcore to lighten up the ski while maintaining a smooth flex and a high amount of torsional rigidity. A Poplar-Beech Woodcore has a light and lively feeling that has the power to blow through crud, drive a firm edge on icy conditions, and deliver a strong grip on the snow. If you are one of those gals that wants a stable ski, that can take you anywhere on the mountain regardless of the terrain, or snow conditions, set your sails on the always popular Blizzard Black Pearl. Get one while you can.

Hi I'm Jessica and I just got off the Blizzard Black Pearl. I give this ski a 5 out of 5 star rating. I'm a mellow-intermediate skier, but this is definitely a ski that you can advance on, even if you are an advanced rider, once you get this up to speed that's what it really likes but when you're going slower it does get a little squirly underfoot. Once you really pick it up to speed it's a great ski, definitely for the intermediate/advanced rider. 5 out of 5 stars.

HI I'm Jess, and I just got off the Blizzard Black Pearls. I would give this ski a 4 out of 5 stars. It's an intermediate, more advanced level ski. This year they changed the Black Pearl up a little bit, they lightened up the core and I am not as big of a fan of it, i think it's a little bit lighter but it does make for a better all mountain ski now. It's a little more versatile, it opens up the range of people. It use to be a little bit more of an aggressive ski and they've really made it a little bit more friendly. It's got really good responsiveness and it switches from edge to edge very quick and very easy. It's going to be a great advanced level ski for a lot of skiers out there looking for an all mountain ski.

Hi I'm Julie. I Just got off the Blizzard Black Pearl. I give this ski a 4 out of 5 star rating. I thought it was a really nice ski for an advanced to expert level all mountain skier. At 88 under the foot its quite versatile for both hard packed and deeper snow conditions. They changed the ski a little bit from last year, they went with a carbon top sheet to this so it did lighten up the ski quite a bit from before. If you've demoed this ski in the past and thought maybe it was a little to aggressive for you this is certainly the time to try it now.

Q: I'm 5'4" and 130, advanced skier. I'm fast on blue and black groomers, but can be cautious in crud, as I've had my share of injuries. I love to cruise fast, and a quick turning ski for moguls will make me happy. 152s or 159s? Also, any recommendations on bindings for these?

A:Based on your weight, ability, terrain choices and skiing history I would recommend the 152cm Black Pearl for you. The Marker Griffon, Tyrolia Attack 13, Look SPX 12, or Salomon STH WTR 13 would all make great binding options for this ski.

Q: Hello, I'm an intermediate to advanced skiier the northeast (138lbs & a tad over 5'6"). I like to ski blacks and some blues. Mostly groomers available but I'm really keen to get into a bit of bc touring and more glade experience at resorts. I currently have blizzard quarto 8.0 CA's at 155 and I'm considering upgrading to black pearls. I'm also curious about a longer ski. Any length advice?

A:Based on your weight and ability I would recommend the 159cm Black Pearl for you. Since this ski would be used for more off trail skiing, the extra length will provide you with more stability and control in ungroomed terrain.

Q: Hi, I am 5'6" and weigh 110 lbs. I am an intermediate skier and tend to stick to blue trails but have done some blacks. I tend to like to pick up speed and therefore looking for stability in both groomed trails of the northeast and powder when we get it. What length ski would be best for me? I gave demo the 152 but the guy at the shop said I really should go with a 159. They didn't have a 159 for me to try or purchase.

Q: I'm a 5'0" and 145 lb, 50 year old. I am an intermediate to more advanced skier. On groomed runs I like to make short, quick turns. Feel very comfortable in deep powder and crude. Do you think the 152s would be best or the 159s?

Q: I'm 5'2" and 128lbs. I am an very strong intermediate/(almost advanced but not quite) skier, fairly aggressive on black groomers. Occasionally ride bumps and trees but am definitely more cautious in that terrain. I did a ton of research and ordered the 159s. I am contemplating exchanging for the 152s. I just got the 159s in the mail and they seem a bit long. But I've been told that they turn like shorter skis and took the risk. Couldn't demo before purchasing and now I am thinking of exchanging. I've heard at speed 152s don't hold up as well. Any advice?? I'm so torn. I'm dying to get the bindings on a give these babies a try. I couldn't find them to demo. I demoed Nordica Belle to Belle at 161 a few weeks ago, which were fine but ...help!

Q: Hi, I am 5'1" and 105 lbs. I am an intermediate skier and ski out west, mostly on groomers. Is the 152 to long for me?

A:Based on your weight, ability and where you ski the 152cm will be the optimal size for you in the Black Pearl. There is a pretty fair amount of rocker in the tip that makes it ski shorter than it measures.

Q: Hi I'm a skilled intermediate-advanced skier out West mostly and want to get out of renting. I want to buy these without demoing them first. I'm 5'10 and currently about 189 pounds - not in my best shape, but losing weight consistently by going to gym regularly now that I'm retired. I expect to be at my goal weight of 175 in about 4 months. Not sure what size BP I should get though - there are slim pickins, but is 166 OK or should I go 173?

Q: Hello! I really want to pull the trigger for these, but I'm hung up on size, and no place to demo in my area. I'm 5'1, 126 pounds. I ski mostly in PA, with a Vermont trip once a year. I'm an advanced, aggressive skier, can go down anything though I avoid park and cliffs. I currently ski Line Celebrity in 152, but find them to not be stable at high speeds. I do love the maneuverability, as I play in the trees once in a while. I had Line Chronics in 2007, but they were heavy as cinderblocks to me, and I was in really good shape. So the big dilemma....152, or 159?

Q: hello, I am 5'5" 135/140lbs I am advanced skier, who likes ungroomed trails when possible, & moguls. I ski mostly east coast so crud and ice are common as are groomed trails. I like sharper quick turns keeping to the small section on the side of the trail. Speed is not my game (too crowded lol), but I don't cruise slowly either. what size would you recommend. I currently ski 156cm 2009 burnin luv.
