Plato once said that compromise is the downfall of civilization. We can assume he was referring to the compromise of weight and stability in backcountry skis. Well, did he actually say this? No… But does Blizzard have a solution to the age-old dilemma? Indeed they do. Most planks made for the backcountry are lightweight but tremble when you charge downhill, or they hold put on the descent, but it feels like you’re towing an anchor on the way up. Enter the Hustle 11. Blizzard’s 114-mm underfoot, backcountry weapon trades in the metal for Carbon DRT support, meaning you get a resort-style charging ski that can travel deep into the mountains. Think of it like Charles Barkley in 1992; all the power without the extra pounds. While the Hustle 11 is slightly heavier than other backcountry models on this list, its stability on the downhill makes it worth it. Grab a pair of Hustle 11s and finally enjoy a ski that balances, not compromises, weight and performance.
