Blizzard Zero G LT 80 Ski

Here's something! Blizzard decided to apply their years of Zero G know-how to a specialized ski mountaineering tool. The LT 80 is a finely crafted ski that provides the ultimate confidence in steep terrain. A long running edge, subtle rocker, and tapered tail make precision jump turns and side-slipping quite comfortable. The tweaked Carbon Drive chassis from the Zero G construction makes sure the ski won't fold on you and the mini-sidewall forces the edges into a firm surface. A consistent flex offers the repeatability necessary to have the courage to make the next leap. The Blizzard Zero G LT 80 will be a ski mountaineering staple for years to come.

  • Carbon Drive LT is a uni-directional fiber wrap offers a round flex and torsional stiffness.
  • Wider tip and tapered tail help plane up if the conditions get a little manky.
  • Small camber and gentle rocker are the perfect combo for steep confidence.
  • TrueBlend core has a bit of pop and edge dampening for a stable feel.
  • Mini sidewalls eat into firm snow and add some durability.
  • Tip is notched so you can use a race-style skin system.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Benjamin S
In what scenarios would you recommend this Zero G 80 LT over Blizzard's Zero G 85 (or 95)?

I'm looking for a ski for PNW volcanoes and the High Sierra in the spring. Thanks.
Answer from jbo
Hi Benjamin, I would recommend the 80 LT over the 85 for most steep or adventure skiing scenarios. It's skis just as well (if not better) while being lighter weight and more nimble on the skintrack. The 85 offers slightly more float making it a tad more versatile as an all-rounder, but most folks would prefer the 95 in powder and potentially PNW mank.

Question from Christian
Will the LT configuration be available in any other widths? Be great to see it in the 105.
Answer from Jeremy L
Thanks for reaching out, Christian. At this time we aren't aware of any other skis in the Blizzard line getting the LT treatment.

Question from TSB
Would love to hear some more thoughts on this ski and how it feels on-snow from Dr. Borro or others who have gotten some turns on it thus far. East Coasters are curious!
Answer from eric
Hi East Coaster, The new Blizzard is fun, playful, but very solid on edge ski. With just enough forgiveness to make sure you dont get extra puckered on already steep terrain.

Question from Zach W
What's the point? Just a bit narrower and a bit lighter to fill in the Zero G lineup?
Answer from jbo
Hi Zach, the LT 80 is definitely a different ski as compared to the other Zero Gs. It uses a new layup ("Carbon Drive LT") that has a different feel, really at home in the steeps. Also, tip notch!

Question from Jonathan
Is this a next-season ski with a limited release this year? Any chance of getting a 178?
Answer from jbo
Hi Jonathan, yes that's right. We've had the opportunity to ski and stock them. We do expect a few 178s, but don't have a concrete date. Please reach out via email to reserve a pair.
