2021-2022 Folsom Rapture

“One of the most versatile powder skis I have ever used” — that’s what reviewer and heli-ski guide Paul Forward said about the Folsom Rapture. Check out his full review & Deep Dive comparisons for more on how the ski has performed during a full season of heli skiing and during days at the resort.

2020-2021 Black Crows Anima

Luke Koppa reviews the Black Crows Anima for Blister

The Anima has been in the Black Crows line for several years now, serving as their playful-yet-stable, big-mountain powder ski. For 20/21, they overhauled the Anima and we’ll be skiing it this season. For now, check out our First Look to see what’s changed with the new ski, and how its design compares to the rest of the market.

2020-2021 Whitedot Ragnarok ASYM

Blister reviews the Whitedot Ragnarok ASYM.

Asymmetrical, plenty of girth, lots of rocker, and a surprisingly low weight — the Whitedot Ragnarok ASYM is a unique-looking ski, and you can check out our First Look for more.

2020-2021 Kye Shapes Numinous

Luke Koppa reviews the Kye Shapes Numinous for Blister

Last week we talked about the Metamorph, a new ski from Kye Petersen & Foon Skis’ new brand, Kye Shapes. Now it’s time to talk about the big gun in the Kye Shapes lineup, the Numinous. And for many people, we think there is a lot to like about this big-mountain ski. Check out our video First Look & writeup.

17/18 Blizzard Spur

Jonathan Ellsworth and Sam Shaheen review the 17-18 Blizzard Spur for Blister Review

The Blizzard Spur has been one of our absolute favorite fat skis. And the new Spur could hardly be more different. So is that a good or a bad thing?
