“After 50+ years of skiing, and almost as many years of reading those other reviews, I can say hand on heart, that this is the most comprehensive, honest, and reliable review publication I’ve ever come across.” — Hart

“You guys are like my ski bible, so thanks again for cutting through the bullshit within the ski industry.” — B. Gephart

“Not that you need to hear it for the millionth time, but you are the only source of reliable information regarding ski reviews. Which is frankly bizarre given the time the other magazines have had to get their shit together.” — B. Chadsey


Most buyer’s guides are quite useless, and having flipped through this year’s crop of guides, it’s clear that the others aren’t getting any better. But the Blister Buyer’s Guide is radically different.

We Test Product Year Round

Other publications do all of their ski testing in a few days. We literally test year round. Nobody puts in as much time on equipment as we do, so no other Buyer’s Guide can match the accuracy of our reviews and our product comparisons.

We Take No Money from the Manufacturers We Review

Unlike the other buyer’s guides out there, we don’t take any money from the ski or snowboard companies we review. So what you get is the most honest, accurate, and useful product descriptions and comparisons you will find anywhere.

We Won’t Insult Your Intelligence

We’ll leave the bad cliches and unhelpful product descriptions to the other buyer’s guides. Instead, we’ll provide you with the info you need to make informed buying decisions — our own verified product specs (weights, dimensions, lengths, mount points, etc.), and honest, accurate descriptions that detail the nuances of how a product performs, and distinguish that product from the others in its class.
