The new Zero G series from Blizzard is a sleeper. Somewhat secretly, Blizzard has been making backcountry skis for other brands and it shows on their first lightweight self-branded skis. With a 3D carbon layer and a full-length sidewall, the skis can hold an edge on the steeps. And with subtle rocker and 85mm waist, they perform in variable conditions and of course you’ll smile in powder. The women’s Zero G 85 is no less capable than the men’s version and we’d be surprised if some men didn’t pick it based on color. Simply a great all-around ski for climbing mountains and skiing them.
- Carbon Drive is a unidirectional fiber layer that adds multidirectional stiffness.
- Sidewalls run the full length of the ski to provide dampness and impact protection.
- Core is made from Paulownia which is a strong, lightweight wood found mainly in Asia.
- Mild rocker supplements the camber underfoot, a profile recipe for success.

Questions & Reviews
It is very tempting to get the 171 cm Blizzard Zero G because of the price but I have been told that this is a very stable ski. I am an aggressive skier and I have skied skis that are 174 cm in length. However, I am 5.4 and weight 125 pounds, do you think the 171s are more than I can handle?
Thanks a lot!
I love skiing stiff, carving alpine race skis and am trying to figure the difference between the men's and women's 0G 85. Have you skied both and if so what do you think? I need the 157 cm and am trying to decide weather to get the women's 0G now or wait for next years men's in that size. Also, feedback on the Blizzard ( Pomoca?) skins vs. BD nylon Ascension.
Thanks so much, Kath
