Abyss Powder Ski

The Abyss Powder Ski is a true powder ski that is best suited for more advanced/expert skiers due to the stiff flex, width under foot (114mm), and length. It's available in a 173cm or 180cm. It received an official Blister Gear Recommendation and you can read a review about the Abyss here on Blister Gear Review.

Bliss Freestyle Ski

The Bliss Freestyle Ski is the race car of the bunch. It is playful and fast, and because it has a twin tip, it's perfect for the park. This ski will not perform well in powder, but if you love skiing backwards, tricks, and big air, it's perfect for you. It's available in a 168cm and 175 cm. 

La Nieve Backcountry Ski

The La Nieve Backcountry Ski was designed to be as nimble going up hill as it is going down. While you can use this ski at your favorite resort, it's not designed for icy or firm groomers. What you'll love is the flat tail, substantial width underfoot, and shovel nose. We offer the La Nieve in a 157 cm, 168cm, 173cm, and 180cm.

Rafiki Powder Ski

The Rafiki Powder Ski is the newest addition to our line up. It's our most playful ski and will deliver a surfy, fun ride. We call it a powder ski because of how wide it is under foot (111mm), but it's really a solid ski even on groomers and in the trees, especially for someone who wants to make makes tighter turns. The Rafiki is available in a 157cm, 164cm, 172cm, and 180cm.

Rebel All Mountain Ski

Love corduroy? Then look no further. The Rebel All Mountain Ski is the perfect ski for carving up the entire mountian. This year it received an official Blister Gear Recommendation. It has a small amount of rocker in the tip for powder days, but won't keep you afloat on big snow days. It's better suited for those East Coast powder days and for people who spend more time on groomers and moguls than in powder. Read a detailed review from Exotic Skis about the Rebel here. The Rebel is available in a 162cm, 168cm, and 175cm.

SOS All Mountain Ski

Meet your one quiver killer. The SOS All Mountain Ski is our best selling, award-winning all mountain ski. It is different from the Rebel in that it is wider under foot and has more rocker in the tip and tail. It has a larger turning radius than the Rafiki, so it will naturally make bigger turns. The SOS is available in a 157cm, 166cm, 173cm, and 180cm. Read a detailed review of the SOS from Exotic Skis here.
