Blizzard – Zero G 95
Hello, where did this come from? This ski leaps into the ring at 95 underfoot in a hugely contested battle for the best all-round touring ski. And it comes up trumps. Springy, lively, totally dependable in powder, hard pack and crud. A true all rounder, though not for first timers because there’s essentially no rocker up front and lightweight cambered skis take a touch of technique to turn in deep, soft snow. OK, so that’s the micro-criticism out of the way – now celebrate what a properly thought-out carbon-wrapped lightweight ski can do. There is easily enough stability here to edge ghastly steeps and nasty pistes equally confidently. The weight is right down there with the best, yet power is on hand to deliver seriously invigorating downhill performance. The 85s are equally as excellent; we’re picking the 95s because the weight penalty for uphill is minimal against the 95’s powder skiing joy on the way down. One of the finest tourers out there.
