Best Beginner Ski

See all pictures

Not all of Blizzards skis are built to blow up the mountain, the Quattro series is for frontside devotees and progressing skiers who want something that will grow with them. This lightweight, carbon piste ski is a forgiving, turnable, option for that feels more like a reliable carver than it does a beginner ski. It’s a perfect option for those coming into their own as skiers, and something that will grow with you as you get your technique dialed.

This lighter carbon-enhanced version of the Quattro has an edge on the rest of the series because it’s a little lighter, and for the vibration dampening qualities of its construction. For piste skiers looking for a little more driving power, check out the Firebird or one of the full Ti versions of the Quattro.
