5 Great reasons to buy from us:
The Black Pearl name is well known as being one of the most sought-after women’s skis of the last decade. It is an incredibly well designed all mountain skis that work in all conditions both in Australia and overseas.
Blizzard has recently updated their Black Pearl game with a redesign for the 2021 season. The new TrueBlend wood core makes this ski more stable yet just as fun. It provides stiffness under foot and around the bindings while being softer through the tip and tail. The modern tip profile has also been created to increase responsiveness and ease of turn initiation.
Redesigned with input from their Women2Women program and in-house engineers, the Black Pearl 88 shines as bright as ever. Blizzard’s TrueBlend Flipcore W.S.D. (Women’s Specific Design) is designed to address the performance needs of every woman at the size level and to perform in a variety of conditions. The result is confidence and just plain fun whether skiing groomers, softer snow off-piste, bumps, trees or everything in between. The Black Pearl 88 has been designed not just for the best days on the mountain, but for every day. A lightweight construction, smooth profile shape and camber underfoot make the Black Pearl 88 a go-to for today, tomorrow and the day after that, too.
This redesign ensures that the Black Pearl will remain the flagship high-end women’s all-mountain ski in the aussieskier range.

"THIS PLACE IS AWESOME"
They sorted me out with a new backcountry setup, and couldn't have been more helpful. Answered all my questions about tech bindings and boots. They obviously use the gear, and seriously know their stuff. They tracked down some hard to find items, and then got my gear sorted and in the post the same afternoon I ordered it. So glad I found this place!

"GREAT SERVICE AND REALLY FRIENDLY"
I'm in Sydney and they're in Melbourne but no problem getting on the phone with my boot size to mount the bindings and very kindly trim the skins for the skis. Shipping was fast and am impressed by their personal service. Thanks guys! Would definitely shop here again.

"20 YEARS OF PAIN, GONE!"
These insoles have fixed my lifelong pain that I've experienced wearing ski boots. Within 2 hours of skiing with these, my body adjusted to them and I have yet to experience any discomfort / pain whilst using these. 2020 is the first year I've returned to Melbourne from skiing pain free! Will recommend to all my friends.

“EXCELLENT SERVICE AND GREAT PRICE”
I’m very happy with the advice and service i received from Aussieskier before buying my new skis. The staff are super helpful and sent my skis by courier straight away so I had them in time for an overseas trip. The skis arrived in perfect condition with binding attached and exactly as expected. I would definitely buy from Aussieskier again in the future.
