Leave tradition to the old fogies.
Fatty powder skis are a dime a dozen these days, and it seems like they're all pretty much slightly modified versions of the same thing—big rocker, soft tips, and a loose, surfy feel. Blizzard's down with the trend, but it's also ready to throw down some changes with the Spur Ski.
Don't get it twisted: riding loose, surfy skis can be more fun than swimming in a kiddie pool full of pulled pork, but they quickly get out-muscled when the snow is anything but pristine. The Spur's a little different, though—it still features a pow-crushing 124mm waist and fully rockered tips and tails to surf, float, and pivot through waist-deep creamy goodness, but it has a unique asymmetrical sidecut and tapered tips and tails that make it easy to vary your turn shapes at speed and provide a ridiculously smooth and forgiving ride. With some help from the burly sidewalls, the Spur bites into turns like a beast when you get up on edge, so you can rail through pockets of wind-affected and handle groomers like a champ on the way back to the lift.
Not only are the Spur's extremities tapered for a smooth, versatile ride, but they're also made of light and stiff carbon fiber, which actually increases the ski's stability while reducing swing weight and vibration, making the Spur a ridiculously bomber platform when you're mobbing through day-old leftovers or wind-hammered crud. Blizzard also incorporated its unique Flipcore technology, which inverts the poplar, bamboo, and ISO core during the pressing process, matching the core profile to the rocker shape for a ride that's incredibly smooth and a flex that's ridiculously consistent, no matter how hard you're pushing the ski. There's no doubt about it, the Spur is blazing its own trail to big-mountain domination.
