Blizzard talked Pomoca into making a specially formulated nap for their precut skins. Called Velvet, the unique mix of fibers is harvested from mostly or completely dead animals and/or plants. Hard to say for sure, but something was probably alive at some point or at least considered organic. It was probably orange whatever it was. Or maybe the fibers were dyed with something inspired by Yellow No. 6, the only orange shade approved by the FDA. We do know the glue is Pomoca’s best, and thus some of the best on the market. The membrane between the two is light, strong, and waterproof; also Pomoca’s finest. As is the simple tip and tail clips that work great with the Zero G skis. Did we mention they work with Blizzard Zero G skis? Yep, out of the box.

  • Velvet is a unique Pomoca formula that is uniquely unique and orange.
  • Safer Skin Light membrane is the best way to attach fur to skis in Switzerland.
  • Standard Pomoca glue is reliable yet not too tacky so you can pull skins apart.
  • Custom metal clips fit securely on the slightly recessed tips of Blizzard backcountry skis.
  • Adjustable tail clips fit into the notches Blizzard designed for said adjustable tail clips.
  • Universal skins are 125mm wide with a tail kit: you can fit any ski by attaching the tails and trimming.
  • Precut versions with tails attached are available for all sizes of Zero G 85, 95, and 105 skis.

Update 2020/21: Blizzard updated the tip attachments to be custom metal clips that seat in the slight recess at the tips of newer Zero G skis; the plush is the same and the tail attachments are still the standard Pomoca rubber straps. The updated version doesn't work as well with pre-2019/20 skis that don't have the tip recess.

Update 2021/22: Blizzard has changed the tip buckle on the Universal-length skins to a standard Pomoca tip buckle to be able to work on all ski tips. Now you can use the fast Blizzard orange skins on any ski! The precut 85/95/105 skins still use the metal clasp introduced in 2020/21.

Question from Alex H
 
I want to double check what the actual Pocoma equivalent is. When I look on their website, the only orange nap is the 'Free', which is their least expensive offering. Also, came across this review of the Zero G ski where it references the skin being 100% nylon, which leads me to believe it is the 'Free' not the 'Race Pro' which is Mohair. Any way to confirm this? I have the Zero G 95 and am looking for light-ish skins - have a pair of BD Ascensions, but they are on the heavy side...and impossible to tear off with my ski on (too sticky).

Hi Alex, the color of the branded skins is not a good indicator of content (see blue Dynafits, e.g.). We were told by a Pomoca employee from Switzerland that the ZeroG skins are similar to the Race skins, which matches some vague statements from Blizzard. It's hard to confirm with inspection but the hairs are short like race skins. They don't seem nearly as fast when skinning though, which could be expected since these are full coverage skins for mid-fat skis versus the 59-62mm parallel cut skins used by most racers.

Question from Bill
 
Hi, I just bought a pair of Zero G 85's (178) and need to get skins. What's the difference between these and the Pomoca Climb Pro Glide? Which would you recommend? Thanks.

Hi Bill, we're told Pomoca used a special Race-y formula for the Blizzard skins, so they will be a bit lighter and faster than the CPGs.
