A match made for East Coast crushers and Western intermediate wanderers.
- The Flipcore technology means the ski was built upside down, providing a rockered tip and tail that are naturally stable along with slight camber underfoot for superior control and edgehold on harder snow
- A wood core, reinforced with titanal, yields great rigidity and rebound fit for skiers who go everywhere regardless of the snow condition
- Sandwich construction layers the core materials with titanal layers, while sidewalls are joined to provide greater impact strength, handling, and edge grip
- Mid-fat dimensions and sidecut yield float in powder, easy edge-to-edge turning in choppy trees, and split-second speed control in exposed terrain

Description nails it, this ski went all over Mammoth in California and didn't flinch, squirrel or chirp - all mountain capable, very capable & fun.
Right Coast Quiver of One (Really)
What with the on-going lack of snow situation here on the east coast, any skiing I've been doing has been on my knife sharp, front-side technical skis. However, this last weekend, as I again walked by my brand new Bushwackers in the garage on my way to the car, I changed my mind and threw them in the Thule. What a revelation! Everything the press has been saying about flipcore is true. Varying turn shapes, carve, (as well as my Kastles), stable, ice, etc., etc. Do you know that feeling when you find a piece of equipment that just seems so right? That was me this weekend. So, knowing how light they are, as soon as I returned home from the hill, I bought the last pair BC.com had in stock, with the plans of mounting them with touring bindings. I'll just have to file a little notch in the tail of the skis for my skins. Perfect! Do yourself a favor and demo, or just go ahead and buy any of the flipcore models, you won't be disappointed. Thanks Arne. Cheers.
A Perfect Ski for the east coast
I bought these skis out in november and couldn't be happier. Thing rips through anything you want ice, man made cream, death cookies, and anything else you put in your way. They are snappy and once you get used to them you can make some really short little carves or big long ones depending on how you feel.
I havent gotten a chance to see these in the woods(with the serious lack of snow this year), but I'm sure they will kill it in the tight New England trees with how quick they are.
any thoughts on how this ski performs in...
any thoughts on how this ski performs in bumps? i'm looking for a ski that is snappy in the moguls but hoping to avoid purchasing a dedicated mogul ski
With 88mm underfoot and a turning radius of 20m at 180cm length, this ski is suited for skiers looking to mash bumps and take some turns in the crud/powder. It has slight tip/tail rocker with low camber underfoot, so it's ready for quick turns and proves to be quite lively.
this ski will go anywhere...and fast
Light Weight Rockered Touring Ski / Groomer Knifing Machine
At 7lbs per pair in the 173cm these bad boys are incredibly lightweight and would make a great ski for someone looking for a slightly narrower touring ski that has rocker yet is going to outperform just about anything in it's weight class. Hardsnow, Groomers, crud, powder, you name it, the Bushwacker holds it's own on just about any surface.
