Product details

The Blizzard Rustler 9 is a do-it-all freeride ski that can handle most any snow condition. Take this ski on a US roadtrip - it’s not out of place in any region!

Key Features:

  • 92-94mm Underfoot – The 90-100mm width range is very versatile. Skis in this range are narrow enough to make the ski maneuverable on hardpack, but wide enough to be able to ski powder reasonably well.
  • Rocker/Camber/Rocker Profile – This ski has rocker in the tip and tail, meaning that it will float in powder and be easy to turn.
  • Carbon Flipcore D.R.T. – Titanal underfoot but not in the tip and tail, which gives this ski a playful feel without sacrificing stability.

Review by Curated Expert Will Shaw
The Blizzard Rustler 9 is an awesome all-mountain ski that excels on hardpack and groomers. It’s a great ski for intermediate and advanced skiers who want something that’s fast and stable. It’s also approachable enough for an athletic beginner who’s progressing to have a ski to grow into.

Does Blizzard make good skis?
This article will answer the question of whether Blizzard makes good skis. In short, the answer is yes. Blizzard owns its own factory in Mittersill Austria, where many Blizzard skis are designed, and most Blizzard skis are manufactured, and Blizzard skis are known for their quality and durability. That said, not every Blizzard ski is right for every skier, and Blizzard doesn't make a true "park" ski or and FIS-approved racing ski. In short, Blizzard skis are very good, but not every Blizzard ski is right for every skier.

What size Rustler 9 should I get?
Ski length can come down to personal preference, but a good starting point for sizing the Blizzard Rustler 9 is about 10cm shorter than the skier's height. A beginner or someone who prefers slower speeds and tighter turns could size down about 5cm, and advanced skiers could ski a longer length. The Rustler 9 has the largest section of camber out of the Rustler family, so it skis the most tru to its length. Blizzard does not recommend skiing the rustler 9 in a length greater to the skier's height.

The Rustler 9 is an all-mountain freeride ski that loves everything the mountain can throw at it. It is founded on two signature concepts, Carbon Flipcore D.R.T. Technology and an innovative waist concept: the longer the ski, the wider the waist, which gives ambitious freeriders and all-mountain skiers more versatility and float, even on steep terrain. The smooth rocker-camber-rocker profile makes it responsive and stable yet super playful in all snow conditions and on any type of terrain.

This is a true jack of all trades ski. It can rip groomers, and then hit the trees and still feel at home. It is very stiff underfoot, but playful in the tip and tail. This makes it incredibly versatile. These can ski aggressively, but are pretty low key!

Everything. It's got lots of power when you need it, but it's light and has good "pop" and "play." Super fun for hitting natural jumps and very confident at higher speeds.
