  • Fun to carve

The Bad

  • Lost some points for women who like to ski top speed
  • Can ski a little short
THE VERDICT

Blizzard's Viva 810 Ti is a snappy, responsive ski that does lots of things well. Still, better suited to advanced intermediates and experts who like to make lots of turns on bluebird days.

ITEM DESCRIPTION

Blizzard's Viva 810 Ti is a snappy, versatile frontside ski for women.

FULL REVIEW

Blizzard’s Viva 810 is fun, snappy and responsive, with a wonderful edge-ability that lets you sink deep into every turn. Easy to initiate in hardpack, slush and bumps, it’s a true frontside ski for hard snow fans who prefer to ski on bluebird days when the sun is bright.

For our testers who did not rate the Viva at the top of their list, a lack of high speed stability and even for one a loss of energy were given as the reason. Bottomline: this is a performance ski that delivers great ski-a-bility, even for skiers who may not be at the top of their game quite yet.
