Reviewer Gijs

"Smoothness, precision and a consistent feel are what I look for in a piste ski. I am not the racer type, I prefer a ski that challenges me technically, but does not break my bones doing so. For many recreational European skiers, a versatile piste ski is all they need".

Fun and energetic


The Blizzard WRC (tested length: 176 cm) is the less serious little brother of the WRC Racing, which has a race plate with piston, is actually a very good beer league GS ski. The WRC is easier to ski, less demanding and much more fun for non-racers. It has quite a bit of tip rocker, which makes it great in chopped-up or even fresh snow (on-piste). Like most consumer GS or high-end piste skis, the Blizzard WRC holds an edge beautifully, is stable at speed and you’ll have trouble finding its true limits. But this ski has one more thing: playfulness.

Playful

The WRC is light to ski. It’s not really light weighted, but it is quick edge to edge, skis over bumps and simply makes you want to yell ‘Yihaa’ in almost every turn. And yes, this Blizzard WRC ski does everything you expect of a consumer GS ski, but it does it less serious. If you want a ski that’s always glued to the snow: look elsewhere. If you’re looking for a fun ski on-piste that you can race and have fun on all day long, the Blizzard WRC could be the one. Just make sure you stick to the rules, for the skis won’t…

Blizzard about the WRC

"THE WRC RACING 'SYSTEM' IS FANTASTIC FOR BEER LEAGUE OR MASTERS RACE SKI WITH THAT SILKY GS FEEL. IT WILL ALLOW YOU TO CRUSH YOUR CLOSEST RIVAL EVERY WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND DO IT WITH EASE. BUILT WITH WORLD CUP PERFORMANCE IN MIND, BUT WITH A SLIGHTLY LIGHTER FLEX THAN THE PLATED VERSION, ITS TIGHTER TURNING RADIUS AND WIDER FOOTPRINT MAKE THESE SKIS IDEAL FOR WEEKEND CARVING AND NIGHT RACING.", says Blizzard.
Well, that's what I said, sort of.
