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.

Bought as a gift
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I bought them for her to round out her backcountry quiver....pretty sure she'll love them.
First light weight ski
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
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.
