Playful Freeride Ski

See all pictures

The Rustler 11 is notably softer and more accessible than the other “big” skis Blizzard produces. But that doesn’t imply any shortcomings on the Rustler 11’s part–with a couple of Freeride World Tour appearances, it’s more than proven itself a viable option for the best riders out there on a global stage.

This is one of Blizzard’s skis where the waist size increases with length, and with a max size of 192cm there’s the potential to get some real boats on your feet.

Blizzard describes the Rustler 11 as “the ultimate resort powder ski.” This is quite the tagline, and while “ultimate” is usually a questionable moniker, there’s no denying that the Rustler 11 has earned its reputation. It’s a great powder ski, but performance drops notably as snow firms up.

For those interested in something with a little more punch and a true all-mountain mindset, are encouraged to investigate the more modestly waisted Rustler 10.
