The Blossom White Out has an underground following like few skis do. A look into the ski lockers of Pugski.com's Colorado testers will reveal more than one pair. Why does that mean anything? Well, because even though these skiers have unlimited access to our test fleet, they chose to spend their own money on a pair of Blossom White Outs. To me, that says a ton. I'm not sure how much more you need to know, but even though I may have struck oil, I will keep drilling.

The Blossom White Out is an evolution of the retired 77mm Wind Shear, whose 124-77-110 shape dates back to the mid-2000s; two skis ran concurrent in the collection for a few seasons. The White Out retains the 77mm waist but goes with a broader 131mm tip and a 111 tail. The Blossom logo and White Out graphics are new for 2020, but the stellar performance remains. Where you are making out with these new Blossoms, because they are selling direct at this point, you are getting a premium-level ski for a commoner’s budget.

Philpug: On-snow feel is what you would expect from any premium ski: solId, smooth, and connected. All it takes is a thought and these skis will do whatever you want them to do. If you are looking for an alternative to some of the more popular skis in the premium 80mm class, here is your opportunity.

Insider tip: Take advantage of the very good Vist Speedlock binding system. It does enhance the ski’s hard-snow performance.​

We have a dealership here in Seattle that sells Blossom skis, and I was lucky enough to get a pair of White Outs to demo a couple of years ago. These are great skis. I ski a lot of bumps and was looking for a narrower ski that was good in the bumps and could bomb groomers. This ski really fit the bill. It's forte is hard pack, but not icey, to spring snow and soft snow, but not too deep. It has more of a GS sidecut, but you can still whip it around in tight moguls. The White Out has a nice big sweet spot and it rewards a balanced stance. If you like to go fast on the groomers there are faster more stable skis out there, but it does quite well. I skied the Blossons for a whole day and like them so much that I went to the shop guy and offered to buy the demos. It was the end of the season and he was more than happy to sell them to me at a great price.

Bottom line: these skis are a hoot.

Terrific ski—this Is my designated ski for our annual Sun Valley trip and it also gets a fair amount of local usage in between storms. I got a killer deal on mine buying from @Jean-Benoit as well. I am a big fan of quality skis in a 76-78mm width and feel like they are overlooked by too many western skiers.
