    Bonafide Ski

    Whether there's powder, wind-buffed chalk, a thin layer of corn, or bulletproof hardpack, the Blizzard Bonafide Ski will easily rip the mountain from top to bottom. This favorite of ski testers everywhere has an even more accessible feel thanks to its Carbon Flipcore technology with double Titanal. Directional carbon fiber in the tip and tail helps to stabilize the rocker when you're rallying groomers, eliminates tip chatter, and helps to reduce the swing weight of the ski, while two full sheets of Titanal further add dampening properties and even pressure distribution for a smooth, quick feel. Its mid-fat 98 millimeter waist and rockered tip and tail offer excellent flotation in the steep and deep and provides easy turn initiation wherever you are on the mountain.

    This daily driver tears up groomers, open bowls, crud, bumps, boilerplate ice, and blower pow with flying colors. Sandwich sidewall construction makes it a precise and powerful turning machine, and a poplar-beech wood core provides smooth and fluid turning. Utilizing its revolutionary Flipcore technology, Blizzard put the Bonafide's core into the mold upside-down, giving the tip and tail a naturally rockered shape rather than weakening the ski's integrity by pressing it into shape as is the case with most rockered skis.

    • A true daily driver for all your resort pursuits

    These skis really surprised me!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These skis really surprised me! They have both float and precision through trees and down burly chutes, and also rail hardpack groomers. The sweet spot in these skis is wide and forgiving, but they respond very well to forward pressure throughout the turn. Weight changes in lines between the trees are rewarded with swift arcs and changes in direction.

    For their width, they are fairly quick and smooth edge to edge. Moguls were a breeze: choose a line and these skis will deliver it. Coming from a racing background, I didn’t think these skis would hold an edge but was surprised with enough grip to drag a hand on the snow and even good energy out of the turn when weighting the tails. They were true to their 18m radius.

    Conversely, these are not skis to be lazy with. Above about 35 mph, they require constant attention, wanting to hook up on the tips or tails. In crusty, choppy snow, for example in the run-out below a steep drop, their stiffness makes them overly responsive and they are a lot of work. For big mountain skiing in exposed terrain, I would choose something with a more dampened feel and longer turn radius.

    Highly recommend this ski for hard charging any terrain, but would maybe switch out for something more forgiving after lunch. Amazing mix of precision and control off piste while still being able to lay it over on groomers.

    Variable and Stable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This ski is nothing but versatile. The construction is a poplar beech core with carbon reinforcements. This allows the ski to be agile at slow speeds when your legs may have seen better days, but remain very stable keeping you confident at high speeds thanks to all the carbon reinforcements. A lightened tip and tail lightens the swing weight of this ski increasing is maneuverability especially in the trees. I'd definitely recommend this ski to any resort shredder looking for something to handle those variable condition days.

    Perfect Hard Charging Skis

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Coming from ski racing I was looking for a good all mountain ski that would be able to keep an edge on icy groomers but also is solid in crud and variable conditions. I take these skis everywhere and they perform great in a wide variety of conditions. They are a stiffer ski, which makes them perform great on groomers (reminds me of gs skis with the Bonafide's large turn radius), but I have also never had any issues taking these into tighter shoots and tree lines. Overall these are a great all mountain ski. This is a ski that understands that mountain conditions are not always chest deep powder and they are able to power through choppy, non ideal conditions.

    Point and shoot

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These sticks want to go fast. They have two titanal layers running the full length of the ski, plus one plate under the binding for a total of three sheets of metal in each ski. They’re stiff, heavy and damp. If you like to ski aggressively, rail groomers and blast through ice-caked crud or day-old chopped powder, then these are the skis for you. If you don’t mind getting lazy and want to smear the tails to dump a little speed, then these skis will think you’re trying to set an edge and take you for a ride. They have a 98 mm waist with enough tip rocker and a good-sized shovel to float in soft snow, but they’re really at home charging through whatever’s left over after powder panic subsides.

    Why Does it Have to be a Men's Ski?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Added these to my quiver last winter, and they might be my favorite ski of all time! These skis rip on hardpack, and are just wide bodied enough to be fun and floaty on a powder day. They ski a lot like a wide-bodied Giant Slalom ski (I am 5'8" and ski these in a 180cm). Honestly, my favorite pair of skis I have owned. The Flip Core tech from Blizzard makes the ski responsive, and despite how burly it seems, I have no issues getting these bad boys up on edge at any speed. Best for ad advanced skier looking to charge hard! LOVE THEM.
