Marcus Caston's Bio

I am Salt Lake born and raised, grew up racing and learning to ski with the Snowbird Ski Team. Skiing at Alta and Snowbird gave me the skills I needed to transition into a freeskiing career. Now, I spend my time on the hunt for the perfect powder turn!

totally different. the bodacious is going to be strong and powerful where the helldorado is is going to be squirmy and floppy with all that rocker (some people call that playful)

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Blizzard Bonafide is perhaps the most fun and versatile ski ever made. Magic is the only explanation for the Bonafides ability to turn a 98mm western monster into a GS machine on Eastern ice. Once I hopped on the Bonafide I threw out my GS skis (not 100% true, but I hardly ever use them anymore). Plus, who wants to go up to the mountain with 2 pairs of skis and ski off trail in the morning and groomers in the afternoon? I sure as hell don't...I want a ski that crushes hard down Silver Fox then slices up Lower Chips all in the same tram lap. From the Snowfields of Sugarloaf to doubling up on Hanging Bowl at the Bird, I want the Bonafides on my feet. If you ski, you need to have these skis.

Powder ski out of the race room

The most versatile powder ski on the market for sure. Another magical child of the flipcore which allows you to crush the pedal to the floor and makes 80 mph feel like 40. However, the most amazing quality of the Bodacious is how versatile and forgiving such a powerhouse of a ski can be. This ski is not just for the super hero skiers that you see in the movies, the Bodacious understands you and will back off if you want it too... she's a very calm and understanding monstrous beast.

Charlie Brown is right, Cochise if you are looking everyday leaning powder or Bonafide if you are leaning everyday groomer. But either way you are going to be the happiest dude in the world...

Unfortunately sounds like you had a terrible tune. A 3 degree side bevel will feel sharper on hard snow, ask for you skis not to be detuned. Looks like your from Tahoe area, take your skis to the Start Haus in Truckee, they will fix you up.
