Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I ski 100+ days a season, mostly at Squaw valley and I can say with confidence that the Samba is a great one-ski-quiver. Blizzard tweaked the stiffness and length to create the Samba from their men's ski, the Bonafide. An all wood core makes the 159cm, 166cm, & 173cm lengths a very playful option for women. Flip Core technology provides natural rocker and slight camber underfoot makes the Samba a great ski in all conditions and terrain. The rocker allows them to glide and float through powder and they rip like a race ski on groomers. Icy terrain is never much fun but by keeping these babies sharp they shred that dust on crust amazingly well. For a high performance, forgiving, confidence inspiring ski look no further.
