The Blizzard Power S7 is an all-round piste ski for expert skiers, and one we looked forward to putting through its paces during our on snow ski test.

Here's what one of our testers had to say when he brought the S7 back to the Kuhtai Test Centre - "Lovely in short radius turns and no need to work it too hard, the ski does a lot of the work for you".

That's not to say it's not pretty much equally good in long radius turns, not to mention performing well at both high and low speeds and being noticeably lively and responsive.

About the only minor points we found were that it could occasionally be a little bit shaky in harder, faster turns, but the application of plenty of pressure on the edges generally deals with that issue.

Other than that we only have good things to say about the S7 - well, apart from the 'rack appeal', but as with most piste skis the designers have been conservative as far as the top sheet graphics are concerned - and it doesn't affect the performance, after all.

You could also argue that the S7 is one of the more expensive piste skis we tested, but then you get what you pay for.

The wood core and titanium reinforcement means you'll get a powerful ski with the kind of build quality you'd expect from a 'top of the range' model in the piste performance category.

If you want something just short of a race ski with the ability to carve all day long then look no further.
