In short, Blister Premier is “the kitchen sink” when it comes to our membership options.
Blister Premier members get all the benefits of a Blister Membership, all the benefits of a Blister + Spot Membership, and they get (1) the option to hop on a phone or video call with our staff to discuss their gear questions and (2) free registration at our annual Blister Summit.
(If you signed up for Blister Premier before 12/13/22, you’ve been grandfathered in at the previous rate with the original Premier benefits; your membership does not include Spot Insurance or free Blister Summit registration. If you’d like to upgrade to the new version of Blister Premier w/ Spot Insurance & free Blister Summit registration, please reach out to this email and we’ll be happy to help.)
With Blister Premier, you not only get one-on-one personalized gear recommendations from our reviewers, you also get the option to set up phone or video calls.
Included with Blister Premier is one free registration to our annual Blister Summit event, where you’ll be able to demo tons of new gear, ski and ride with industry pros and Blister staff, attend nightly panel sessions, and more.
Blister Premier includes Spot Insurance, which means you’re covered with $0 deductible, $25,000-per-injury insurance for a whole year.

Ask us anything gear-related, anytime. Nobody tests as much gear as extensively as we do, so if you really want the best, most informed, and accurate recommendations, you’ve come to the right place, whether that be for your next ski, ski boot, bike, running shoe, or whatever other outdoor product.
Get access to all Flash Reviews, Deep Dive comparisons, and more! Our Flash Reviews provide our initial impressions of a product and are updated in real-time as we spend more time on it, while our Deep Dive comparisons spell out how a ski compares to every other relevant ski in the category.

Spot’s plan covers costs from your doctor-recommended treatment plan up to $25,000 for any covered physical injury as long as it is carried out by a licensed medical professional. Your treatment plan could include diagnostic scans, hospital stays, ER visits, surgeries, and emergency transportation. Basically, anything your licensed medical professional recommends that you need to recover from your accident. Unfortunately, your spiritual healer’s plan is on you.
All you have to do is log in to your Spot account to report your accident at myaccount.getspot.com so we can verify your policy information. You can do this even if you haven’t received treatment or bills yet. Then, once you get your first bill or Explanation of Benefits, you can file a claim.
No, Spot is not health insurance. Spot’s plan provides coverage for reimbursement of medical bills incurred for injuries stemming from accidents. As much as Spot would like to help you with your stomach flu (drink plenty of fluids!), that’s just not Spot’s thing. General illness and sickness are not included in your policy coverage.
General illness, pre-existing conditions, overuse injuries (wear and tear), and chronic sickness are not included in your policy coverage. Spot only covers accidental injuries that happen while you’re participating in the covered activities.
Yes, air and ground transportation are covered, up to $25,000.
Coverage is void if the insured is doing anything illegal – e.g., trespassing.
Here is the Policy Transport language:
Ambulance Service (Air) means the service provided:• by means of a fixed or roto-winged aircraft equipped with life support and medical apparatus; and• for the primary purpose of transporting an Insured to or from the Hospital where treatment is given.
Ambulance Service (Surface) means the service provided:• by a commercial or municipal ground ambulance service; and• for transporting an Insured to or from the Hospital where treatment is given.
Once you’ve purchased your Blister + Spot Insurance membership, you will receive an email from Spot with instructions on how to log into your Spot account.

Deep Dive Comparisons
Perhaps the most useful tool for ski comparisons, our Deep Dives spell out how a ski compares to every other relevant ski in the category. Check out our sample Deep Dive of the K2 Mindbender 99Ti to see an example
We often get on gear long before it’s released, and our Full Reviews necessarily take time to produce (you know, since we actually put lots of time on or in the products we test). Blister Flash Reviews provide our initial impressions of a product and are updated in real time as we spend more time on it. We post Flash Reviews for skis, mountain bikes, ski boots, high-profile mountain bike components, ski bindings, and more. Check out our sample Flash Review of the Atomic Bent 110 to see an example
