The Blizzard Rustler 9 Skis are a versatile freeride tool that does surfy and playful just as well as it does precise. The mid-90's waist width is ideal for groomed snow, but handles its business on a bit of fluff or chop like a boss. Light on the feet and lightning quick in turns, the Rustler 9 retains high speed stability and high demand versatility for the do-it-all resort rider who needs a pair of sticks as down for anything as they are.
Rocker Camber Rocker – Ski profile with rocker at the tip and tail, camber in the middle. Reducing the pressure on the edge at the tip and tail makes the ski even easier to handle and increases flotation on powder snow. The camber guarantees great grip on packed snow.
Rocker Concept – Increased amount of tip and tail rocker to ensure ideal flotation at all speeds. Camber underfoot to provide control on compact snow.
Shape Concept – Progressive wide body style with an aggressive radius. Early rise tail designed to be playful in softer snow.
ISO, Poplar, Beech, Balsa, Paulownia Multi Layer Wood Core
Carbon Flipcore Technology – A revolutionary rockered ski production process that incorporates a uni-directional carbon frame onto the core of the ski that results in great performance with a light and easy feel.
Carbon Flipcore D.R.T. – Blizzard's Dynamic Release Technology utilizes a specially shaped Titanal component that is full width under the boot but tapers toward the tip and tail of the ski, to increase the ski's playfulness without the weight penalty and without sacrificing stability. Combined with unidirectional carbon fiber in the tip and tail, longitudinal stability is retained while torsional rigidity is lessened for a more playful and less hooky feel.

Sandwich Compound Sidewall – All Blizzard skis with the exception of some junior skis are built with ABS or Phenol sidewalls for superior performance (stability, power transmission, handling) and durability.
