The Blizzard Rustler 11 is a rare breed of freeride ski that can rip serious lines but is accessible to the vast majority of skiers. The core layup is, quite honestly, a feat of engineering. It combines fi ve types of woods (ISO, beech, balsa, poplar and paulownia) with a milled strip of Titanal laid edge-to-edge across the waist and tapering toward the tip and tail, and includes more carbon and fi berglass layups than Jeff Bezos’ super-yacht. But all of this tech doesn’t add up to the burliest ski possible; instead, it’s one capable of handling a myriad of conditions without being too demanding or smacking you down. The floaty shape is bolstered by tapered tips and tails for easy surfing, but the stout mid-body and solid camber will rail turns in chalk and on groomers. Rip the Rustler 11 top-to-bottom all day and you’ll still have gas in the tank for one last tram lap.

FREESKIER tester thoughts:

“I did not want to give these back. Incredibly nimble for a big body. Much like me on a wedding reception dance floor, this ski moves and shimmies in mesmerizing fashion.”

“A sturdy, large, perfect width of a ski. Responsive in bumps. Crushes through crud.”
