The Kabookie Ski might be the most versatile in Blizzard's lightweight lineup, making it perfect for the backcountry and groomers alike. A rockered tip and tail give this mid-fat ski plenty of flotation in pow and crud, while the strong Flipcore 3D wood core keeps it stable down speedy descents. Comprised of poplar, bamboo, and ISO-wood, the Kabookie's core keeps the weight down and still provides a snappy response while turning. Despite its mid-fat 98-millimeter waist, the Kabookie has a surprising turn radius thanks to the classic camber underfoot and sandwich sidewall construction for powerful edging. So feel free to take the Kabookie anywhere on the mountain, because it'll handle it all.

I just purchased the new Kabookie ski in a 180 length. Looking to mount my Hammerheads. At 5'10" and 175 lbs, I will be using this setup as my one-ski quiver. Wondering where folks are mounting telemark bindings on this ski? Blizzard provides a recommended alpine boot center line, which when compared to my boot's "pin line on chord center" measurement, results in a pretty close location. I welcome your thoughts, folks! Thank you.

Hi Danp. I never tried the Bonafide because all the reviews indicated that it is a stiffer, harder-charging ski. If I were to buy alpine boards, the Bonafide would be at the top of my list, but for telemark, I felt that the all-wood Kabookie would be a better choice. As for the length, given your weight, I would think that 173 would make sense if you want a nimble, quick-turning ski. The 180 is not a, overly long-feeling ski, though. Just depends on your skiing style.

I would say that the ski has a tuned resonance. many other skis I've compared them to seem harsh and un-refined, as if they can't tune the stiffness. I have Bonafides and Sambas (read Kabookie) and they are both awesome for different days. watch out, Blizzard has variable center lines for male and female models, 4cm difference. watch out!
