In a few days, we are going to drop the biggest and the best buyer’s guide we’ve ever made.
Other publications boast that they conduct their ski testing over several days, or have one designated week of testing.
Our guide is the result of over 10,000 hours of on-snow testing, year-round.
It is 200 pages long.
And it includes:
- 207 skis
- 55 boots
- 100+ bindings, splitboards, snowboards, helmets, goggles, skins, apparel, etc.
- 0 advertising dollars from the gear manufacturers in the guide
- 0 fake reviews
Unlike other guides, gear companies can’t buy awards from us or pay us to feature their brands.
Truth is, most buyer’s guide “reviews” are just poorly written ads for the ski companies included in the guide. (If you didn’t know this, just check out their descriptions of a product. Then check out ours.)
There’s a reason why our guide has become the reference book for so many manufacturers.
And this year, we’ve got some very big news:
FREE ONLINE EDITION: 18/19 Blister Winter Buyer’s Guide
In order to ensure that every skier and snowboarder has access to the most honest, accurate, and useful product information out there, we are making an online edition of our Winter Buyer’s Guide, and it will be available for free. Yep, completely free.
LIMITED PRINT EDITION: 18/19 Blister Winter Buyer’s Guide
We love beautifully made print books. There’s something wonderful about holding a hefty, collectible book in your hands that you can pick up, flip through, and come back to whenever you feel like it. We’ve been sent a lot of photos of our Buyer’s Guides gracing the coffee tables of passionate skiers all around the world, and it gets us every time.
The print guide is $9.99, and will ship out mid October.
BONUS: all pre-orders to the US get free shipping
