Women's Recreational Racer

See all pictures

There are frontside carving skis and then there are skis like the Phoenix. Like the Thunderbird above these are serious skis built to emulate racing skis, while still retaining some practicality on your average resort slope.

With full camber, dual titanal sheets, and a TrueBlend Woodcore, Blizzard is bringing everything they have to the table in order to produce a women’s carving ski they can be proud of.

To be clear, this is a ski for people who know how to ski. It’s demanding in a way that promises massive returns on your performance- provided you have the finesse and technical knowhow to keep it in control.

A race plate binding system channels every ounce of pressure that you channel into your skis more efficiently than a traditional binding system, while active Carbon Armor, now standard in all of Blizzard’s top performance models, works to dampen vibrations.

Any ex racer looking for a ski that can keep up with her has at long last found a worthy ride.
