22/23 Test Day 33: Blizzard/Tecnica 2

Posted April 5, 2022 @ 7:51am | by Sam Barry

We’ve still got a couple more test days under our belts. Warmer weather calls for some slushy testing with Blizzard/Tecnica at Cannon Mountain. We didn’t spend a ton of time at Cannon this season, but when we did get up there, the trails never fail to disappoint. Plus, you really can’t beat that sweet Franconia Notch view. As predicted, it was pretty warm and slushy most of the day. We followed the sun around the mountain and stayed on the trails that seemed soft. 

Some of our fave Lady Monsters, Devon and Tate, were there ripping it up on the Blizzard women’s lineup. Dev spent most of the day on the Black Pearl 88, which she felt had enough structure so that you could carve in the soft snow but was still playful enough to be fun in those conditions. Tate agreed, calling them “unbelievably fun and versatile.” She spent more of her time skiing the Sheeva 9 and Sheeva 10, which take a little bit more effort to push through the mush, but that effort is rewarded with another enjoyable ski. All in all, a solid testing day. 

Sending a huge thank you to the team at Blizzard/Tecnica for serving up a sunny parking lot cookout. There’s really nothing better than good food, good drinks and not being cold at Après.
