2019/20 SPORT SHOP DEMO SKI LINE-UP
Blizzard Black Pearl 82
Lengths available (cm): 145, 152, 159, 166
The Black Pearl 82 features Blizzard’s women’s-specific design with a forgiving tip, playful turn radius, and a smooth, stable flex pattern. The result is a versatile frontside ski that prefers groomed terrain but will also tackle bumps and crud when driven by a determined skier.
Blizzard Rustler 9
Lengths available (cm): 164, 172, 180, 188
One of the most well-rounded skis you’ll find in 2020. It has a very even mix of performance characteristics for an all-mountain ski.
Nordica Astral 74 CA
Lengths available (cm): 150, 156, 162
Simply put, this women’s-specific ski is designed to make skiing easier and it provides a stable and playful ride. And yet, no matter your skills, it won’t hold you back.
Nordica Enforcer 100
Lengths available (cm): 169, 177, 185
Last season’s best-selling men’s ski in the U.S. is known for being stable in all conditions. Floaty in powder, stiff on groomers maneuverable through bumps, and holds strong on steeps.
Nordica Navigator 75 CA
Lengths available (cm): 156, 162, 168, 174
The Navigator 75 CA is designed to make skiing truly accessible. Its classic, squared-off tail shape enhances edge hold and makes it easier to transition between turns while its early rise tip offers versatility in soft snow and readily absorbs bumps.
Nordica Santa Ana 88

Powerful, playful, and precise, the Santa Ana 88 provides a whole new way to experience the mountains. Women who spend their days skiing on trails with friends love its stability and control.

The Deacon XT ups the performance ante for intermediate and advanced skiers. It’s a great tool to use to conquer the mountain no matter what the conditions.
Völkl Flair 76
Lengths available (cm): 147, 154, 161
The Völkl Flair 76 is designed to be a user-friendly, super fun carving ski. There are stiffer, more aggressive, and less forgiving skis in the Flair collection, but Volkl knows that not everyone is a ripping expert skier.
Völkl Kendo 88
Lengths available (cm): 170, 177, 184
The brand new Kendo 88 sets the tone for 50/50 frontside/backside skis with a new shape featuring Völkl's revolutionary 3D Radius Sidecut design that delivers greater versatility by allowing the skier to switch from short turns to long turns at will, and at any speed.
Lengths available (cm): 154, 161, 168
The Yumi's unique women’s-specific setup is designed to create a playful, easy handling ride. The lively, yet stable feel on the front side blended with the float and maneuverability for an occasional off piste ramble make it yet another winner in its category.
