The Black Pearl is designed with a Carbon Flipcore WSD construction, allowing you to be light on your feet and incredibly energetic.

Salomon QST Lux 92 All Mountain Ski
The QST Lux 92 from Salomon has a CFX Superfiber construction that makes the ski light as a feather, but strong enough for the most aggressive skier to have stability and power when running across heavy or challenging snow conditions.

Perfect Run: Long Horn; Taos, NM
Rossignol Sky 7 HD W All Mountain Ski
The Sky 7 HD W from Rossignol features the widest waist and most rocker of any ski on this list, making it the most powder friendly ski out of them all.

Rossignol’s Carbon Alloy Matrix offers additional grip and responsiveness on days when the snow is a little firm.
Perfect Run: Jupiter Bowl; Park City Mountain Resort, UT
Nordica Santa Ana 93 All Mountain Ski
The Nordica Santa Ana 93 is the most powerful ski on this list and the only ski with Dual Titanal layers. A Blunt Nose Shape improves flotation and helps initiate turns easily.

Perfect Run: Blue Sky Basin; Vail, CO
Volkl Yumi All Mountain Ski
The Yumi from Volkl has been updated for the 2018 ski season with extra millimeters at the waist and a Titanal band that runs right through the center of the ski; this band adds extra power while adding minimal weight. The Yumi is a popular ski for those with strong techniques, who favor smooth, controlled turns on the frontside but like to dip off into the bumps when they are soft.
Perfect Run: Whispering Jesse; Snowmass, CO
