Cochise crushes all in its path

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought the Cochise a few weeks back. I am an expert skier that is 5'9", 170lbs. I bought these to replace a pair of Movement Trusts that I returned after skiing on them for a year. I was looking for something larger than my 177 Mantras, and with some rocker. This was my first time skiing reverse camber, but with Blizzard's Flipcore technology, these things are rock solid. I only had the chance to ski them in skied out/packped pow/groomed conditions at Squaw so far but they held up great. They are extremely versatile, easy to maneuver, and unwaivering at speed. I definitely wanted a pair of skis with Titanal in them, and the Cochise do not dissapoint. If you ski hard, and want to charge all over the mountain, then these skis are a damn solid bet. There is no substitute for metal in the ski. I'm not a big guy, nor am I in great shape, but I was able to crush it in the 185cm no worries. First pair of Blizzard's and I'm considering picking up a pair of Bushwacker's for those marginal days. Stoked!

Responded on

how can you tell what flipcore is doing to the ski's performance? do you have any idea what flipcore is? I think it's Blizzard BS and they have pretty much stopped mentioning it much themselves. And when they spoke about it in the past, it was pure garbled vague non technical, non structural drivel. Don't drink so much of their cool aid.
