This is the typical time of year when skis start going on sale, and Blossom is no different! We've got a decent selection of Blossom skis (new and demo) on sale at the lowest prices we can manage. We've even got a few odds and ends that might tickle your fancy. You can find these skis here:

Oh wow someone convince me that I need to figure out a way to buy a Numero Uno to go along with my Vist-branded White Outs.

A week ago I would’ve bought the Cross Winds but these beauties arrived today care of @Skeezer! (With a strategic assist from @Noodler on the Fischers).

I just keep re-reading @Philpug’s review of the
Numero Uno N°1 RC, saying it “is the type of ski that villages will write songs about.”

having skied the white outs, Cross Winds, No 01 RC and No 1 SL ski's, I can whole heartedly endorse these skis. Buy the correct length though! Blossom does scale flex (a good thing) by length.

I own the White Outs, Cross Winds and just placed my order for the Numero Uno RC 1. Obviously I am a Blossom fan. I'm not really good at pointing out the various merits of a particular ski. I just know that when I get to the bottom of the hill, more than once I have said to myself, "Damn, these skis are amazing". Now I'm going to get down to the business of writing a ballad about them that hopefully represents my village adequately.

iMHO, I like the feel of the blossoms better for more on-piste use. they aren't as damp but they are livelier and have more snap to them while remaining composed and smooth. they are better carvers too. the SR88 is more adept off piste and has more rocker (slight) with a more "serious" feel vs the Cross wind which im skiing today in 3-4" of leftovers over hardpack which has no rocker. I will be skiing the Cross wind in some bumped out stuff today and will add to my Review on the blossom Cross wind page.

No.1 RC sizing opinions please. I'm male 5'7" 170 lbs with gear. Already have a 163cm Head SS i.Speed 13.2m and a 172cm Enforcer 88. I'm debating between the 164 (13m) and 170 (14m) No.1 RC. Also Is this too redundant with already having a 66mm i.Speed 13.2m? These deals look too sweet to pass up.

Along the lines of @mulva28's question, are there any clear benefits to owning a 71 underfoot (the RC) when I own a 77 (White Out)? Not that I can afford it anyway :D

IN the No1 RC, The 170 length is pretty soft, the 178 is much stiffer but its not a stout ski. If you're looking for a SL radius ski, but the NO 1 SL. I have it in a 165 and its a fantastically fun ski. Read the review, it should be in the 2022 product pages.

Nope, Buy the SL dammit! You will thank me.

Definitely sounds like a fun ski and very slick looking with the black and white; but also seems like more overlap with my 163 Head SS i.Speeds 13.2m. I was really looking for a White Out but the RC has me intrigued. Dougb needs that SL to compliment his White Outs! I am trying to slot something between my i.Speeds and my Enforcer 88's. I am looking for a frontside carver with a little more versatility in roughed up snow than the i.Speed but I do tend to like short to medium arcs.

Sell the Heads, get the Blossom No 1 SL.
Very obvious. That’ll keep the wife happy if you can manage to launder the cost difference.
Someone needs to buy the FIS Sl with or without the Vist bindings.

@Ron, have you seen the FIS SL? Wondering if it has normal edges or thin edges like many.
