The 2018 Blizzard GS FIS Race Dept skis have been a race winner at all levels of World Cup, Europa Cup, Noram, FIS and USSA races.  The new 2017-18 FIS rules governing ski radius and length dictate 193cm (+/- 5cm) (>30 m radius) skis for men, and 188cm (+/- 5cm) (>30 m radius) skis for ladies.  These sizes are required to compete in FIS races for athletes U19 and older.  So men can ski either the 193 or 188, and ladies should ski the 188.  

 SAME SKI AS 2019 EXCEPT FOR GRAPHICS

2017-18 Blizzard GS FIS skis:
193:  101-65-84 (>30 meter radius)
188:  (>30 meter radius)

The 2018 Blizzard GS FIS Race Dept Skis are handmade in Austria, and feature a Rapid Tip Profile combined with the perfect blend of spring steel and wood core.  The Rapid Tip Profile allows the highest level skiers to achieve a much quicker turn initiation without adding unwanted and cumbersome side cut to the ski. This GS ski provides additional grip and stability on hard packed and icy race surfaces while not inhibiting the fore/aft flex of the ski.

Blizzard skis come from the manufacturer's factory raceroom not fully prepared for racing. Blizzard GS skis are set at the factory with a 1 degree base bevel and 3 degree side angle. Peak Performance recommends for GS skis a .5-.7 degree base bevel, 3 degree side angle, sidewalls pulled from the edge, and race wax applied.  In our drop-down menu above, we offer several levels of race preparation to choose from as options.  Please refer to the Race Tuning & Services page for more information and advanced 
options, and in your order notes please tell us what base angle you prefer if you are choosing the Elite or World Cup Prep add on.  Premium prep does not include base edge modification.

Blizzard race skis require the use of Marker bindings - Marker's XCell 12, XCell 16, or XCell 18.  Please refer to the drop-down menu for binding selection if you need bindings.  

         The 2018 Blizzard GS RD FIS Race Department skis are the ski of choice for World Cup skiers Florian Eisath (Team Italy) and Robby Kelley (US Ski Team).
