The Blizzard Alight 8.2 Ti is a brand new women’s ski for 2019 and is a result of a lot of really in depth research and development focusing specifically on women’s skis. There are three new elements to these Alight 8.2 Ti skis. A new lightweight wood core reduces overall weight by 10-12% compared to previous models thanks to a combination of poplar and beech. Not only is it lighter, but it also actually enhances performance. This is supported by a new technology that weaves carbon fiber into the existing fiberglass layer. This gives the ski increased stability, torsional stiffness, rebound, all while retaining that lightweight feel. There are actually longitudinal strips of carbon running through the fiberglass, something that’s unique to this construction. The shape of the ski has also been updated. Blizzard has moved the mount point forward along with the entire sidecut to ensure that women are getting the best feel out of their skis. This is the some of the most impressive women’s specific tech we’ve ever seen and the results are impressive. It carves turns like a dream, feels stable and powerful, yet lightweight, and is bound to become a favorite among advanced to expert level women who want a high performance all mountain carving ski.
