I wanted to carry only one pair of skis when I travel and the Cochise is definitely it. Floats in pow, surfs the chop, destroys crud, rails on hardpack, nimble in the trees, bashes moguls, trenches groomers, and amazingly maneuverable on the slow flat sections. I demoed quite a few skis in the same category and the Cochise was head and shoulders above the rest. Blizzard really nailed it with the Flipcore design. I'm stilled astonished how versatile a 108mm waisted ski can be. What's left to say - go get yours.

My wife demoed these and immediately fell in love with them. The Icore construction makes them extremely light and maneuverable. Subtle early rise in the tip makes them plane up on powder and also initiate quick turns on hardpack. The edge hold is amazing for such a wide ski and she couldn't stop talking about the stability (which was evident by how fast she skied in all conditions). Stout enough for experts but very approachable for anyone. As a bonus, the graphics are pretty sweet. She ordered the 161 from BC and mounted them with Marker Squires.

With a DIN setting that goes to 11 this binding is stout enough for most skiers, but seems to be geared towards teens and women. It was on a pair of demo skis my wife tried and it was rock solid. It has all the benefits of the Marker wide ride design but is extremely light. She ordered the blue/green version for her new skis and couldn't be happier.

I bought these goggles as a Christmas present for my wife. She has always had trouble finding a high performance, stylish goggle that fits her face. I went with the Heritage Green Tartan w/ Ignitor Mirror lens. She recently tried them out on a trip to Snowmass. The fit was perfect and the lens tint is a great all around color for varying light conditions. Absolutely no problems with them fogging up or slipping down on her face. She is extremely happy with them. The icing on the cake... they are green and funky, two of her favorite things!
