Recreational Racer

The Firebird is Blizzard’s professional-grade race series, and the WRC is the fan favorite out of the line. It’s Blizzard’s attempt to bring some liveliness back into piste skiing, the WRC achieves this through a fast-yet forgiving feel while headed downhill. You can feel the force beneath your feet, without having to worry about being eaten alive like with comparable race options.

Whether you’re looking for something to give you the edge in your casual league, or simply enjoy making the kinds of turns that the Firebird likes to make, Blizzard has delivered on one of the more reasonable recreational racers currently available. For a less-aggressive version of a frontside ski, the Quattro line also has some interesting options.
