2019 Blizzard Zero G 108 Description:
You know how Blizzard tends to make skis that rip? Well that reputation extends into their family of touring skis, the Zero G. While gram counters often sacrifice downhill performance in the name of easier skinning, the Zero G offers a relatively stiff, high-performance option that just happens to be crazy light for how it performs on the descent. Carbon Drive Technology, with uni-directional 3D carbon frame construction, makes the Zero G reliable and sturdy for big-mountain lines in whacky conditions. This is a powerful ski, but it is also nimble enough for kick turns and light enough for bootpacking. Just about all skis are fun in light, smoky pow. But not all skis can handle hard-packed crud or wind crust in steep narrow couloirs. The Zero G can, and the 108 is extra optimized for powder performance and all-time days.
