Blizzard Skis 2021: The First Look

Rethinking the wood core

Blizzard’s all-mountain freeride line features some longtime favorites, like the Bonafide, Brahma, and Black Pearl.

Considering how well Blizzard’s flagship skis—Bonafide, Brahma, Black Pearl—have performed in ski tests and sales, you really don’t want to mess them up. So Blizzard tinkered carefully with a refresh and re-imagined one of the most fundamental parts of ski construction: the wood core.

Enter TrueBlend. It places hard wood (beech) where you need power and stability and softer/lighter poplar in the skis’ extremities to give skis a more even and more balanced flex. For 2021, Blizzard incorporates TrueBlend into the Bonafide 97, Brahma 88, Black Pearl 97, and Black Pearl 88. In other words, their most notable all-mountain skis. The aim: to make the skis easier to engage earlier in your turn without losing aggressive carving performance. Blizzard hopes the update expands these skis to even more skiers while keeping experts as happy as they’ve always been.

In other news, we’ve got a newly redesigned Cochise 106 and a wild-looking Spur. Here’s the rundown:
