Ever since taking its rightful place as the head of the Blizzard touring ski stable, the Zero G 105 has made quite a splash, especially amongst aggressive skiers looking to venture to faraway places. Not being content with good, Blizzard has continued their journey towards great by tweaking the Carbon Drive laminate (now in its third iteration). As a result, Blizzard was able to make the ride a little more friendly without sacrificing the hard-charging performance people have come to love. In other words, the ski loses none of its soft snow pedigree but becomes friendlier when the snow is less friendly (or just downright awful). While the tip and tail rocker make the Zero G 105 a powder ripping fiend, the long sidecut combined with Carbon Drive 3.0 laminate ensures it’s no slouch on hard snow, either. Built to explore distant peaks and the powder-filled couloirs that reside on them, the Zero G 105 is a reliable soft snow-oriented partner that will calmly tackle any objective.

  • Carbon Drive 3.0 is a carbon laminate that allows Blizzard to finetune ski characteristics.
  • Rocker-camber-rocker profile helps the ski float and maneuver in deep snow.
  • The long side cut helps provide a tenacious edge hold on steep terrain.
  • Biggest powder-focused ski in the Blizzard touring lineup.

Question from Ian
 
Any thoughts here between the Blizzard Zero G 105 and Black Diamond Helio 104. I'm looking into my first proper/light weight-ish touring setup for the Eastern Sierra. I'm 6'2" 190 lbs. In the Helio 104 I am looking at their longest ski at 184 cm. The Zero G, I would opt for the 188, fearing the 180 would be too small, I haven't skied on any skis 180cm or less since I was probably 13.

Answer from Emmett I
 
Ian,

The Helios are very damp - think "wet noodle". Not necessarily a bad thing, but the ski will carry very little energy from turn to turn.

The Zero G is more energetic and easier to ski, probably more fun for most people to ski.

As always, it's personal preference!

Fantastic all-round backcountry ski: lightweight, durable and handles variable snow extremely well. Low-key graphics a perfect contrast to most skis in this era of attention-seeking hype, however, topsheets do collect a bit more snow than other glossier skis on occasion. Currently using them with TLT low tech race binding and enjoying the lightweight performance.

Question from Matthew S
 
Hi there, I can't decide between the 180cm or the 188cm Zero G 105?
I am 6'1" 175ibs.
In bounds I ski a Rustler 11 188 and a Atris 184 but for touring I have used a 180cm Rossi Soul 7, which felt nice going up but feels to short on the way down for how I ski.
I am worried the a 188 would be harder for kickturns and tight trees.
But I also want to make sure I have a ski that can charge down hill and feel comfortable on.
What do you recommend? 180 or 188 in the Zero G 105?

Hi Matthew, you have analyzed the differences quite thoroughly. A lot of us round down for touring practicality, but yes, on those dream runs we may have enjoyed rounding up. But we always had a dream run nonetheless! You could also look at splitting the difference in another model of course.

Question from Gary
 
I have my choices narrowed down to this Blizzard Zero G 105 or the DPS Pagoda tour 106 C2. Can you comment on how they would differ from each other.

Answer from Lbow
 
Hi Gary,

Great question! The Blizzard Zero G will be stiffer ski compared to the DPS, and because the Blizzard has a long turning radius, it will be better at charging in comparison. The Blizzard Zero G caters more towards a mountaineering powder ski.
The DPS is a damper ski; it will want to make shorter turns and will be more versatile as it will ski better be a variety of conditions.
