Not all women, women skiers, or women's skis are alike.
Blizzard's women-only, all-mountain Free Mountain ski, the Women's Dakota Ski, will change your mind about flimsy, floppy ladies' skis. More versatile than the fatter Black Pearl, this hard-charger gets carving and edgehold power from its sidewall construction and full wood core. The revolutionary Flipcore technology literally flips the core upside-down in the mold to get that awesome Natural rocker in the tip and tail. It's flat underfoot for smooth transitions, especially in that soft, deep stuff you love so. At 108 millimeters in the waist, this mid-fat floats like a butterfly on steroids, and a huge sidecut radius keeps this ski smooth as silk when motoring top to bottom in zero turns. A woman's ski? Yes, but not for just any woman.

The Dakota is the women's version of the popular Cochise. For 12/13 the Dakota had two sheets of metal. For 13/14 the metal has been removed and the core softened to give it better float and a lighter weight. Too they're available in a 163. A great powder ski option that is now more accessible to more women.
