Blizzard Black Pearl 82 Womens Skis

Light, quick, and amazingly fun, the Blizzard Black Pearl 82 skis are a great addition to the Black Pearl family. The 88 is one of the best-selling and most beloved skis of all time, and the 82 is a variation on the theme. Checking it at 6 mm narrower underfoot the Black Pearl 82 is equally at home on the groomers as it is in the woods and through the moguls. Thanks to the shape, profile, and construction of these skis, the Blizzard Black Pearl 82 will proudly and successfully carry on the torch of the flagship model. At 82 mm underfoot, these skis will be lightning-quick from edge to edge, and many skiers who are used to wider skis will be surprised and delighted as to how easy and fun these skis are to turn. The shape gives the skis a 14-meter turn radius at the 159 cm length, and this makes for a super-fun and turny ski that a wide variety of skiers will enjoy. They are approachable and easy to turn, but they also have a high-performance ceiling that makes this model a great choice for ladies who love to charge but also cruise around. The Rocker/Camber/Rocker profile also assists with the overall enjoyment of the ski. The turns are easy to initiate and complete while the camber underfoot makes for a great edge grip with tons of control. Built using Blizzard's Carbon Flipcore W.S.D. Technology, ladies are assured to get light and stable performance. The Blizzard Black Pearl 82 Skis are an awesome choice for intermediate skiers who are looking for fantastic lightweight performance.

2021 Ski Test
We've tested the 2021 Blizzard Black Pearl 82 as part of our 2021 Ski Test. Click the link to see our full profile.
My 13 year old daughter is 4’11” and weighs 95 lbs. Is the Blizzard Black Pearl 82 in 152cm length to long for her considering her weight? I would say she is an advanced intermediate skier, skiing blue terrain comfortably and skiing black terrain too. It would be great if she could grow into the ski a bit but I don’t want to buy her a ski she can’t comfortably ski now.

Many thanks in advance, Dianne

HI Dianne!
I think it's a bit on the long side for now, but probably not next year. Have fun!

Love some direction - I'm a west coast skier - quickly advancing intermediate I guess - comfy on blues and easy black - starting to learn bumps. I'm new to skiing at 52 but will get 40 days in this year. I started the year with a very good condition pair of used 2018 Sheeva 10s - 156s - that I still ski and plan to keep (love them). I was encouraged to add a pair of narrow skis to my quiver and opted for the Kenja 88. I've skied them 3 days and I'm not sure I'm sold on them. 1 day in fresh warm snow (anything would have been fun) the next on the resulting ice and the third with a couple inches of powder on that hardpack and ice. They feel stiff and like they tattle on me if my form slips at all. I'm wondering if I should consider swapping them for BP 88 or 82 or something else that is a bit more playful for next year. I went with the Kenja because they were on sale and I thought I could progress into them BUT not sure that is the case or if they are making me more cautious. Thanks for any tips or direction.

Hi Nancy,

The Kenja is certainly a robust ski designed for advanced to expert level women. The Black Pearl 88 will be more forgiving and more easily maneuverable. The Sheeva 10 is much more maneuverable than the Kenja as it has a softer flex, more early rise and less metal. Please feel free to give our customer service line a call if you would like to speak with an experienced skier. 877-812-6710.

Thanks,

Looking for some input after a failed ski purchase recently. I am 45 5 ft 3 inches 113lbs. In the gym 4 days/week so in decent shape. I am getting back into skiing after over 20 years off. Comfortable on blues. I'd say I'm a progressing intermediate. I will be skiing in the Northeast. I want a ski that will help me advance my carving/edge skills. I demoed the SA88 this weekend which was fine but not sure if it is too advanced form me. I'm mostly on groomers for now. I keep coming back to the BP82. Would like to one day be able to keep up with my husband and daughter but not at the expense of poor technique with skis that are out of my skill set.

Hi Rebecca!
I certainly think the Pearl 82 has more to offer in terms of accessibility than the Santa Ana 88. Santa Ana 84 is a bit more carvy than the 88, or something like the Volkl Yumi 84 has an all-mountain personality but a snappy character. Mainly, I think you'll like the Pearl 82, but it's nice to have options as well. I'd stick to the low to mid 150's in terms of length. Have fun!
