Testing skis so you don't have to.
- Mar 5, 2017
The Tail Wind is the narrowest offering in Blossom's Turbo collection, but its construction has more in common with the narrower Numero Uno models than the White Out and Cross Wind. The Tail Wind isn’t just a White Out with a 3mm slimmer waist; it is stronger due to its construction, which is like a race ski. The Tail Wind is a great option for those who think the White Out is a bit pedestrian and are looking for a more powerful ski that has a quick turn-in but still has a playful side.
Insider tip: Use the money you save on the price of the ski to invest in a better binding.
