2022 Blizzard Sheeva 9 Women's Skis
Blizzard Sheeva 9 Womens Skis
The Blizzard Sheeva 9 Women's Skis are freeriding perfection, specifically designed for women, by women. The narrowest in the Sheeva line, the 9 offers playful agility in a thin-waisted package. Though it might not be the first ski you reach for on deep powder days, they offer a turny, reliable ride that is ultra-quick side to side. Dark blue mountain vistas on the top sheets cover a single sheet of D.R.T. titanal, dual-layer fiberglass compound, and a multi-layer wood core. D.R.T. titanal stands for Dynamic Release Technology, a concept where Blizzard tapers the titanal towards to extremities of the ski. Less metal in the tips and tails allows for a less demanding feel during turn initiation and a more playful ride in soft snow. Wall to wall metal laminate underfoot helps to add some heftiness for when you get going faster and want to really dig into carved turns. Bolstered by unidirectional carbon and an anti-shock layer in the tips and tails, swing weight on the Sheeva is ridiculously light, best suited for skiers who like to craft their way out of tight situations, rather than blasting through them. This is a ski that a lot of ladies will be able to hop on and get along with right away. A tight turn radius lends itself to a more airtight, form-focused style, designed for skiers who categorize themselves as finesse skiers. If you look at the mountain with a playful, athletic and versatile attitude, the Sheeva 9 might just be the ski for you.

If you have the financial means, it's nice to a have a of a quiver, especially when things firm up in between storms or just in general for the lean snow years we have been seeing due to Climate change. Going with a narrower waisted ski will give you more edge grip, power and precision, and due to the narrower dimensions, will allow you to roll the ski over much easier and get in and out of your turns faster. We would recommend the Sheeva 9 for two reasons, you already love your wider 10s, and it's a bit more approachable than the much stiffer Rustler. You will be pleasantly surprised how versatile the Sheva 9 is and may find yourself other than the deepest days on this ski more often than not. It is just as capable in 3-6" of snow but much more user friendly on the groomers, firm, crud and technical steeps, trees and chutes.
Hope this helps and think snow!
