I'll shoot straight: The Rustler 10 is, in my book, the best ski of 2018. Why? It defines its own niche. In the B.R. (Before Rustler) years, finding a ski in the justifiably popular and crowded field of versatile all-mountain options around 100mm underfoot involved choosing between hard-snow and soft-snow pleasure. Not anymore. I've taken the Rustler down hard-packed and hairy steeps, cut-up back bowls, powder-choked trees, and fast groomers. The ski doesn't just do everything, it crushes everything. And it's not hard to see why. Titanal and carbon make it bomber strong, while its shape, rocker, and multi-wood core give it energy and playfulness. The kicker? It's shockingly lightweight for what it is, making it as much a viable backcountry option as a resort stud. Well done, Blizzard.

2020 Blizzard Skis Preview

Read our preview of 2021 Blizzard Skis A Blizzard of Color The 2020 Blizzard skis lineup doesn't feature any massive changes, outside of a redesign to the Zero G backcountry ski series. There are a couple minor tweaks, like thicker wood in the Rustler 10, and a couple subtle additions, like the Brahma 82 and Black Pearl 82. But the flashiest update is the collection-wide color-pop (even the blacked-out Spur has pink sidewalls!), which includes a redesign of the crazy-popular Black Pearl's graphics. As for that Zero G redesign, Blizzard pulled off a couple cool things. One, they ... Continue Reading

2019 Blizzard Skis Preview

Check out our preview of 2021 Blizzard skis. Highlights from the 2019 Blizzard skis lineup: The Old Standbys Blizzard's classic lineup of men's skis—the Bodacious, Cochise, Bonafide, and Brahma—come back for another year of intra-mountain domination. Last year's Brahma CA has a fresh look (far right) and a new name for 2019. Say hello to the Bushwacker. Rustling Up Winners One of the most impressive new lines of skis a year ago was Blizzard's Rustler, known as the Sheeva on the women's side. This year, the freeride series gets even better with the addition of the Rustler 9 ... Continue Reading

Our Take On The 2021 Blizzard Rustler 10:

The Blizzard Rustler 10 has been turning heads and impressing reviewers ever since Blizzard released it in 2018, and for good reason. In the ever-crowded category of 100mm-waisted all-mountain skis, the Rustler 10 continues to be at the top of our lists year after year. The middle child in Blizzard's freeride lineup, it screams versatility. At 102mm underfoot, it doesn't compromise between carvability and surfiness, but elegantly balances both. A specially shaped sheet of titanal that stops where the rocker begins is largely responsible for this impressive balancing act. It provides torsional rigidity underfoot for edge hold and stability, while leaving the ends of the ski softer and metal-less for a dose of playfulness and better float in soft snow. The rocker-camber-rocker profile and specific metal placement means the Rustler 10 can satisfy a wide range of skiers: casual rippers, hard charging experts, and the many of us that fall somewhere in between. A shop favorite for its ability to slice glades, thread moguls, and rip groomers, the Rustler 10 does it all as well as any ski we've been on. For Western skiers looking for a true quiver killer, you'll be hard pressed to find a better option.

Blizzard Rustler 10 Reviews:

  

Love these skis. Better than I expected on the groomers and very solid at speeds up to 50 mph. That’s as fast as I ski. Wonderful in the soft stuff. Bought on the recommendation of the Powder 7 staff. Thanks, Jim F

Height: 5' 10''

Terrain: Groomers unless good powder available

  Rustler 10

Most fun all mountain ski I've ever used. The only reason that they don't get 5 stars is because I had some delamination in the tails. Blizzard was quick to rectify this issue, and sent me a 2021 pair which has been even better. Great ski!

Terrain: Mixed

  Fun ski (for the right conditions)

Good all around ski; not as stable on harder snow as I would like, but the tradeoff is worth it on softer days. Lightweight and easy to maneuver, which is what I was going for. Not recommended for east coast or primarily groomer skiing, but otherwise a really great choice.

  Great all mountain ski

After a 1/2 dozen years on Dynastar Powder Trac 89 looking for a ski a little wider under foot but still responsive enough to ski the bumps. Love the ski!

Terrain: all mountain

Machine on Nov. 7th 2020

  Great all around ski

Very versatile ski. Not perfect for a hard edge on a groomer, or not as perfect as a super fat ski on big powder days, but this guy is a beast that handles all mountain extremely well. Glad I didn't go shorter than the 180s (6' 3")
