Testing skis so you don't have to.
- Mar 5, 2017
Even those who are in the know are still somewhat familiar with Blossom and the White Out, the reference ski in the Turbo collection. But for those looking for a bit more off snow versatility and maybe even as the elusive one ski quiver, Blossom offers a 85mm wide White Out called the Cross Wind. The tip and tail dimensions stay basically the same as the White Out, but the waist jumps from 77 to 85 mm underfoot with the tip staying at 131 mm and the tail inching up from 111 to 112 mm. These changes in shape sacrifice some edge to edge quickness for a bit more off-piste performance without the nervousness of a ski with a lot of shape.
Insider tip: This is a bargain-priced alternative to the Stöckli Laser AR.
