The Black Pearl is the backbone of the women’s freeride line and intermediate to expert women rave about the fun this ski dishes out on a daily basis. At 88mm underfoot and now with a completely new women’s specific construction - Carbon Flipcore W.S.D. - the Black Pearl is the most versatile ski in the Blizzard women’s line up. On groomers, in the trees, through bumps and in powder, the Black Pearl performs in every type of terrain. Its lightweight construction, early rise tip and tail, and camber underfoot make this ski a go-to for ripping female skiers as well as those looking for the confidence to up their game.

This is intended to get you in the general vicinity of the correct size for you. Other factors such as weight, strength, and how aggressively you ski, as well as turn shape and speed (see below) will also play a role in size selection. Your local specialty retailer will ultimately be able to make the best size recommendation.
If you prefer to make longer, wider arcing turns, a longer ski will hold a bigger turn shape with more stability.
If you prefer to make shorter, quicker turns, a shorter ski will be easier to maneuver.
If you like to ski fast, a longer ski will give you more stability at higher speeds.
If you ski slower, a shorter ski will be easier to initiate the turn and maneuver.
