Rated 5 out of 5 by Julie R from Blackops Two hour demo on Mayflower lift at Deer Valley. I had a blast; this ski plowed through the chopped powder, turns were easily initiated and completed. I’m 65, been skiing 50 years. Making it fun still

Rated 5 out of 5 by Court from Great ski for every condition and terrain! These skis can take you anywhere! The shape, size, and materials of the ski make it extremely versatile. I can take these skis on groomers, in the terrain park, off-piste, and even shred on a powder day with them. I am a competitive skier and instructor and can use these skis for both. They’re my favorite pair of skis ever! The skis listen to your movements. I’ve found they have made me a better more confident skier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alli R from Fun for a wide range of skiers. Confident in a range of conditions! Beautiful shape, with a turned up tail and moderate rocker and taper, the Blazer is a smooth ride. The metal plate underfoot definitely helps with the torsional stiffness and helps with edge grip and carving power. Steeps, bumps, trees, groomers, or pow, is the perfect choice for one-stop shoppers when they're looking for a playful and versatile all-mountain ski.
