The Curated Take
I have rarely enjoyed a narrow (for Utah), all-mountain ski as much as the Rustler. It carves easily and gracefully yet allows for exceptional turn size and shape variation. It's comfortable off-piste, especially in trees, with an appropriately flexible turn radius and maximum maneuverability.
On groomed snow, the Rustler can lock into a carve and propel the skier into the next turn with a snappy rebound that is a joy to experience.
It's a perfect quiver of one for an East Coast skier who skis off-trail and a great choice for a Western skier on low-tide days or looking for something fun and versatile on the trail.
- Ease of carving
- Maneuverability in all conditions
- Groomed snow exploration
- Not a powder ski with great flotation
- Might be a bit flexible for those looking for a stiff carver
The Blizzard Rustler 9 Skis are the perfect freeride skis for those who want to tackle any terrain. With Carbon Flipcore D.R.T Technology and an innovative waist design, these skis offer more control and float, even on steep terrain. The smooth rocker-camber-rocker profile makes them responsive and stable yet super playful in softer snow. Whether you're sending spicy lines or cruising the groomers back to the bottom, the Rustler 9 is a do-it-all master.
