Stable Touring Ski

See all pictures

Much to the benefit of uphill enthusiasts everywhere, last season Blizzard’s acclaimed touring ski, the Zero G, saw a nearly complete redesign. The new Zero G is notably lighter than the previous version, and with a 105mm waist, it still delivers consistent results during your downhill.

It achieves this very worthwhile compromise through the use of a woodcore with carbon reinforcements, allowing you to save weight while avoiding the pingy, jarring ride full carbon skis are prone to.

The shape of your touring setup will always depend upon your preferences–namely how much weight you’re willing to drag uphill.

At 1320g per ski, there are certainly lighter alternatives if you’re looking to burn uphill faster, but not many of them will give you as much surface area to stand on when it counts.
