Blizzard Black Pearl 82 Women's Skis

The Blizzard Black Pearl 82 is a women-specific all-mountain ski designed for intermediate to advanced skiers who spend the majority of their time on groomed terrain yet want a bit of added versatility from their skis. Not as wide as the 88 and not as narrow as the 78, the Black Pearl 82 sits right in the middle of the lineup as the "wide carving ski". It retains a lot of torsional stiffness and is very nimble edge to edge, but it is wide enough to use if things get a bit softer as well. A subtle rocker profile in the tip and tail provides some great forgiveness and maneuverability so you won't feel locked into one turn shape. The core construction of this ski reduces how demanding the ski would be, given its shape, and makes it much more forgiving, particularly in softer snow. While it's certainly not a floater, it is wider than a true frontside carving ski, so you essentially get no loss of edge hold and on trail performance while gaining some additional capabilities when it comes to handling variable snow. A generous sidecut on these skis helps them create a shorter turn radius for skiers that prefer making shorter turns or who enjoy a really dynamic ski experience at higher speeds. Women who want a powerful, yet forgiving ski that doesn't come with the weight of full metal laminates will love the Blizzard Black Pearl 82.

First question is, if there are differences between the 21 and the 22 model beside the color?
I'm a 1,65m (5'5'') woman with 50 kg (110lbs) and want to switch after 10 years from my K2 burnin luv carver to All mountain. I'm an experienced rider, love most to swing at medium speed, but want more edge grip and robusteness for dump snow and short excursions offpist. I don't know if i better go with the Brahma 82 in 166, with more edge power or feel better with the Black Pearl 82, which could be stiff enough for my weight and as mentioned i am not the top speed crasher, more swing at mid speed? Looking forward for your advice.

HI katrin!
Same internals on that ski! If you're not looking for top-end stability at speed, I think the Pearl is a better option. The Brahma is quite heavy and stiff, so unless that's something that you really want, I think there's more upside to the Pearl 82. I'd go 166 in that ski. Have fun!
