Get It Before Labor Day Weekend—Order With Free 2-Day*by 5pm MT 9/2/15

Description

Get wild in western powder.

Go down(hill) in a blaze of glory on the Blizzard Gunsmoke Ski, Blizzard's most playful resort powder option, and a favorite of Blizard's pro team riders including 2014 Freeride World Tour Champion, Loic Collomb. The Gunsmoke offers 114mm underfoot for ultimate powder float. For modern freeride skiing there isn't just fast and forward; there's fast, forward, backward, sideways, and spinning. The cool kids know this, and that's why they love this powderhound twintip with rockered tip and tail, a nice ample waist, and generous sidecut radius. 

This surfy ski lives to change it up and find new ways of riding on snow. The Flipcore Natural rockered construction means that 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 that you need on the firmer stuff. Combine that with a mixed arsenal of powerful sidewall construction and energetic yet smooth wood core, and who knows what you'll invent on this ski? 

  • Tip and tail rocker
  • Twintip
  • Sandwich compound sidewall
  • Poplar and bamboo ISO woodcore
  • Flipcore Construction
  • 114mm underfoot

AMAZING

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Im 6ft 4in, 200lb on the 193's.

I borrowed a pair of these from a buddy last week to ski Jackson on a VERY variable day last week. The day started with sheer ice, warmed to corn then morphed to deep spring slush (I spent the previous 2 days on Patrons in similar conditions). Not once, did I want another ski. The Gunsmoke's were amazing with anything I threw at them, anywhere, in very very weird conditions. I ordered a pair at the end of the day as my go between ski when the Bonafide isn't enough and the Spurs are too much. Ive been beating on this ski every since and its amazing.

If you can ski the 193, its awesome!

Daily Driver Material

Great skis from Blizzard, as usual. Twin tip, category smashing skis in variable. The gunsmokes are very nimble for their widths, and they carve hardpack better than most other fat skis I've ridden. By far and wide. They feel more like an all mountain ski than a powder specific ski, but I dont doubt their powder performance. No fresh snow as of late to test them in unfortunately. Hopefully soon.

They feel light and playful for Blizzards, but still have the well known edge hold and crud busting ability that the brand is known for. Turn radius is not too short, these have a great feel at speed. You can really open these up more than other all mountain jib skis.

They feel like more stable and predictable Nordica Patrons, which are the most similar skis in the category, I feel. I would not call them burly, at least not in the 186, but they have a great balance of stability and forgiveness. A little less intuitive than some other skis in the category, but these also do much better in crud and on hardpack. Blizzards flipcore technology really works, the skis are amazing on edge, but able to break free and loosen things up in tighter terrain. These might be my new daily drivers.

My favorite ski

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Weather I'm flying down hard pack, dropping into a 3,000ft couloir, or ripping deep pillow lines, I want these things on my feet. They are light and playful but super sturdy and stiff when you really need it. Hands down best ski I've ever had
