Complete the family.
The growing Rustle series from Blizzard lets you rip on any terrain with confidence. The Rustler 9 all-mountain ski completes the family with a 92mm waist for performance and control both on-piste and off. And with a rocker-camber-rocker profile, you'll have a set of sticks that float through powder and give you control on compact snow.
Like the rest of the Rustle family, the Rustle 9 ski uses Blizzard's Carbon Flipcore DRT technology that features a sheet of titanal in the core to increase stability and responsiveness. A uni-directional carbon frame offers light and easy maneuverability as you play in all types of terrain. The aggressive turn radius allows for tight turns through tree runs and the early rise tail is playful when you emerge into some deep pockets of fresh powder.

Recommended Sizing Guide
Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preferred style of skiing. For example, an expert skier in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
