Zero G 105 Ski
As the fattest ski in Blizzard's touring-specific Zero G lineup, the Zero G 105 Ski is the best option for riding powder deep in the backcountry. The Zero G may be one of the lightest skis in its class, thanks to the weight-saving carbon frame on top of an ultralight paulownia wood core, but this construction also adds enough torsional rigidity and dampening properties for a solid, yet playful feel on the descent.
Though the Zero G 105 feels most at home when the powder is waist-deep, it's versatile enough to handle spring corn, unexpected melt-freeze crusts, late-afternoon cement, or whatever other conditions you'll find in the backcountry. With the rockered tip and tail, you'll stay afloat in deep storm snow and plow through crud, and underfoot camber, paired with the compound sidewalls, will give you a stable, powerful feel as you make big, arcing turns—even on firmer snow. The ski's solid shape and performance is all due to Blizzard's revolutionary Flipcore Technology, which incorporates the construction of the ski into the rocker-shaped mold to provide an even pressure distribution for increased float and a more harmonious flex.

Blizzard Zero G 188cm
Got a pair and I love them. 188cm is a bigger ski for long days in the mountains but I'm willing to add that weight for a better ski down. What blew me away about these was how floaty and playful they are. Most wood/carbon fiber skis I've used in the past ski overly aggressive and hooky but the shape of these does otherwise.

Blizzard Zero G (105)
I cannot believe how well these ski maneuver in any conditions. Front or deep back country these are my go to boards from now on. I mounted a set of Rotation 12s and I wear the Hoji's. Don't get me started on that boot of perfection, or as I call it my high sierra slippers. But back to the Zero Gs. I'm glad I went 105 instead of the new 97s. I ski the Sierras and have more of a need for light weight miles and soft deep turns. These Zero Gs are a perfect match for my application. But the kicker is using them on the resort side. I was blown away at well they bit into the long corduroy groomers and gave me perfect turns when I asked. The only place I didn't like em was north facing icy runs. Way too squrilly for hard conditions. Great investment but ask yourself what application would these skis be best used. Maybe you need fast turns in steep chutes... Maybe you need float and turn in the backbowls.. Bottom line worth every penny.

First light weight ski
My husband bought these and he says: These are my first light weight skis and I am more than happy with them. Tested them in-bounds for a day and they held up very well on groomers, crud and chalky chutes. I have skied them in powder and they skied great. They ski corn perfectly. Simply put, these are ripping skis, lightweight or not.

Would Salomon Shift 100s fit these?

Hi Thomas, The 100mm Shift would not fit on these skis. I would recommend finding a binding with a 110-115mm brake width. Cheers, Andrew Williams
