Picking the correct ski size?

There is no one size for one height and weight. The general rule is to pick a ski that is going to land somewhere between your chin and the top of your head. Within your size range there are multiple reasons to choose a shorter or longer ski.

Reasons for Shorter Ski’s, closer to your chin:

  • beginner or intermediate skier
  • Your weight is lighter than average for your height
  • You like to make short, quick turns

Reasons to size your skis longer, closer to the top of your head:

  • skiing fast and aggressively
  • You weigh more than average for your height
  • The majority of your skiing off the trail
  • Skis have significant rocker in the tip

A shorter ski will be easier to turn yet not as stable as a longer ski. A carving ski with a skinnier waist and a smaller turn radius can be skied at a shorter length than an all mountain or a freeride ski with larger, longer turn radius and fatter waist width.

D.R.T. stands for dinamic release technology.

D.R.T. blends carbon fiber with fiberglass to give you better support, more confidence and greater performance without compromising on the fun.

It has proven itself to be the perfect dynamic energy release technology for the freeride/ back country category.

Blizzard designed a specific Trueblend Free Woodcore for their freeride / back country category skis.

It combines beech and poplar – two wood types that guarantee performance – with paulownia for a lightweight, yet high-performance wood core.

The result: the right flex to cover for all backcountry requirements in a lighter package.
