Description

Big lines, big arcs, no whammies.

The fully rockered Bodacious Ski is Blizzard's fattest board and it has a walloping 32-meter sidecut radius. What does this mean for you? It means ripping high speeds on big lines on big mountains and deep snow. Its means stability when your teeth chatter and snow goes up your nose. And it means shredding until delirium sets in and chomping at the bit to do it all again.

How does it work? Besides the mammoth sidecut, this ski features a Flipcore Natural rocker that literally turns the ski construction on its head. That's right, the ski is actually made upside- down in the mold so the downward-facing convex side forms the natural rocker, without having to bend or artificially shape the ski in a press. The result is incredible natural spring and lightweight floatation in powder, while retaining excellent stability and even pressure distribution. Maybe that's why you can blaze down the mountain with your hair on fire and sparks flying from the tails: it's only natural.

Want a hard charging pow ski?!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This ski is a beast and it will handle high speeds and deep snow. I love it on powder days and when skiing bigger lines!

A Playful Beast

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

For those who aren't sure if they could handle this ski or not, just pick up a pair and you'll realize that these are incredibly fun. I am 16, 5 foot 8, 160 lbs and I have no problem maneuvering these in soft snow. The stability is bomber and you'll never be wanting less.

Bodacious BABY!

This ski is a monster. Its skis very hard all over the mountain. Will float like a champ in soft Snow. at 118 this is a solid ski!

apparently they used a different wood...

Posted on

apparently they used a different wood material for this year's model. last year utilized bamboo isocore with bamboo stringers. this year it seems as if they used paulowina-bamboo-poplar core.

this year's model was designed to be lighter and therefore more playful than previous models.

does anyone have the weights for the old model and new model?

hoping to ski the 196 - does anyone know how the two models might ski differently? does the lighter woodcore mean that the bodacious does not charge as hard in crud/less stiff??

Best Answer Responded on

Core change was done to increase binding retention and durability. Only change was to go to Paulownia instead of isocore in the center stringer. The weight difference is very small. However the glass layup was changed. 12/13 model was too stiff and the tips didn't plane in Pow well enough. 13/4 model is slightly softer to improve the performance in deep snow but not enough to decrease the charging ability of these skis. They're just better in deeper snow now.

Nervous to go this big? Don't be.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

You might think these skis are just for guys with huge thighs? Or only for those that crush big lines? Not true.
I love skiing on these any day. They continually impress me how well they ski on normal terrain and handle variable snow better than any ski I have tried.
If you are still nervous about getting a pair, just get the next size down and you will love how easy and versatile they really are!

Dream trip Note: I was fortunate enough to go heli-skiing in Alaska this past spring. I skied on the 196 bodacious and couldn't have been more confident and comfortable on them. (despite what you see in the movies, the snow up there changes consistency A LOT)

GS Powder ski

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This ski is amazing, it feels like riding on railroad tracks while floating through pow. Supreme edge control and lots of stability makes them great for harder conditions as well.

Matt Evans is a fantastic skier. BUT, his dance skills are a little rough.
