The Rustler series has been a tester favorite since it first debuted in the 2017-18 season. Three years later, it’s clear that the lineup hasn’t lost its luster: The Blizzard Rustler 9 received top honors in this category thanks to its blistering performance at Ski Test. Inside the Blizzard Rustler 9, Carbon Flipcore D.R.T. combines poplar, beech, balsa and pauwlonia wood with a carbon fiberglass compound and a layer of Titanal that’s tapered toward the rockered tip and tail, adding a touch of forgiveness in this otherwise stiff ski. When it comes time to lay a carve, you just can’t mess with the Rustler.

FREESKIER tester thoughts:

“A grippy and playful all-mountain ripper that’s quick to initiate. Subtle rocker shape feels very quick edge-to-edge and allows the ski to feel narrower than it is.”
