Back in December we were given an exclusive first look at the 2017 Blizzard collection. Towards the end of the season we were able to get our hands on quite a few of the new models, the Black Pearl being one of them. We sent out as many female testers on them as we could, and everyone is pretty psyched with the changes. They're essentially lighter, a bit quicker, and more responsive than the previous versions without sacrificing what's made them such popular skis (i.e. stability, versatility, edge grip, and ease-of-use across varying ability levels.)
