It's a great ski for groomers and it's one of the most popular women's skis ever made.


We, like the rest of the ski industry, have put a lot of skiers on the Black Pearl 88s over the last bunch of seasons. It has been without question the best-selling women's ski and one of the best-selling skis ever produced across the board. All of our female testers can tell you it's not hard to understand why this ski has had the long-sustained success it has. In fact, many of our male testers get on this ski and get it. It's just an unbelievable ski. Stable without being demanding, nimble without being nervous, easy without feeling that it lacks anything. It just checks all of the boxes. From expert testers to intermediate testers everyone loves the Black Pearl. A huge reason it's loved by everyone is because it makes you a better skier, no matter your level. It feels easier to pivot, turn initiation basically just happens, and then it provides confidence and balance through the turn. It handles ice really well, is down for a trip through the woods if that's what you're in the mood for, and will keep your legs happy because they do not take a lot of work to turn. Before I finish this love letter to the Black Pearl let me be clear, it's a groomer-focused ski, but it's an incredible ski. It's just one of those skis anyone can get on and have a great day. Iconic. 

Who's this ski for? Everyone. While it's true that powder skiers might want wider, park skiers might want less directional, racers might want something stiffer, (etc.) the Black Pearl would still make those skiers happy. 

Who isn't this ski for? Seriously, if you're looking for a powder ski get something wider. 

Recommeneded Binding: Marker Squire ID with 90 mm brake
