Other publications do their product 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 gear reviews and our product comparisons.
Unlike many other buyer’s guides, we don’t take any advertising money from the ski or snowboard companies we review. So what you get from us is the most honest, accurate, and useful product descriptions and comparisons you will find.
Bad cliches and unhelpful product reviews aren’t our thing. Instead, you’ll get the info you need to make informed buying decisions, including our own verified product specs, and honest, accurate descriptions of how products perform & compare.
Our Buyer’s Guide covers:
When we give a product a ‘Best Of’ Award, you can be sure that it was earned, not bought.
Most buyer’s guides are simply too general. So we’ve sorted the skis and boots we’ve reviewed into distinct classes based on common characteristics. We describe those classes in detail, and lay out what each particular product brings to the table.
Our Ski Categories Include:
Our Ski Boot Categories Include:
All Blister Members and those who have purchased the Guide can view and download the digital Guide directly from our site. You can find it under the “Buyer’s Guides” tab on our navigation bar; there is a tab under “Winter Buyer’s Guide” labeled “READ NOW: 22/23 Winter Buyer’s Guide.”
To view the Digital Guide, you’ll need to be logged into the account that you used to purchase the Guide or Blister Membership.
We submitted the Guide to our printer on September 9th; the first copies will begin shipping on September 19th.
Nope! If you have an active Blister Membership, you automatically get the guide. There are two versions of the Blister Membership: one that includes the Digital and Print Edition (and therefore includes a shipping charge) and one that only includes the Digital Edition (and therefore has no shipping fee).
To check which option you have selected, head to the “My Subscriptions” tab on your “My Account” page and look at which variation of the Blister Membership is listed. If you’re set to receive both Digital and Print editions, it will say “Of course!” next to the Blister Membership on your subscription. If you’re only set up to receive the Digital edition, it will say “No thanks” next to the Blister Membership on your subscription
If you’re a current Blister Member who selected the digital-only option for the Winter Buyer’s Guide when you bought your Blister Membership but would now like to receive the print edition in future years, go to the “My Subscriptions” tab on the “My Account” page on our site, hit the “Switch Subscription” button, select the print option from the drop-down box on the Blister Membership product page, and complete the checkout process (be sure to double check your shipping address). You’ll be able to do this at no extra charge, but your next renewal payment will include a shipping fee to cover the print guide.
If you’re a current member who selected the print option for the Winter Buyer’s Guide when you bought your Blister Membership but would now like to switch to the digital edition and not pay shipping in future years, go to the “My Subscriptions” tab on the “My Account” page on our site, hit the “Switch Subscription” button, select the digital option from the drop-down box on the Blister Membership product page, and complete the checkout process. Then, to have the shipping charge removed from your subscription, please reach out to us at this email and we’ll make sure we get that updated.
