Balanced, stable and really good fun, the Blizzard Alight 7.2 is a great option for ladies looking to consolidate and improve their on piste skiing.

If you're looking for a fun and easy all-day ride, the Blizzard Alight 7.2 could be the ski for you. Comfort and stability are there in droves thanks to Blizzard's IQ technology - a type of integrated suspension system that dampens vibrations and allows the ski to glide without feeling like you are standing on a washing machine. Whilst this effortless smoothness does start to deteriorate at higher speeds, for the majority of recreational-to-intermediate skiers it's a strong and stable ski that will help build confidence on piste.

At 72mm underfoot, the Alight 7.2 offers a fairly narrow platform which means it doesn't take much rolling over to find the edge and when you do throw it into a turn, the integrated lateral edges allow energy to be transferred smoothly along the length of the ski. Translation? This is great for improving skiers who are still perfecting their technique as it is forgiving but crucially lets you know when you get it right.

At £530 it is slightly towards the higher end of the market but not by much. Blizzard have an established reputation for front of the pack, well-designed female skis so you know you're investing in the best.

It's also built to last which will appeal to those looking for longevity from their ski. Dura-Tec technology incorporates aluminium spatula protectors, a thicker textured surface and maximum edge radius meaning the Alight 7.2 is designed to endure. The top sheet design is also incredibly stylish without being overly girly which is always a win in our book.

Overall the Alight 7.2 is a stable, easy-to-use cruiser perfect for all day skiing. Yes you may have to invest but who can put a price on a ski that makes you smile?
