This is by far the most playful and fun ski I have ever had the pleasure of skiing. I tested this ski out at Snowbird after a fresh 12" had fallen. It made for one hell of a day!
The rocker-camber profile on this ski is a heavy rocker in the tip, a small amount of camber underfoot, and a subtle but generous rocker in the tail. This profile allows for an expert level skier to make long turns in deep powder at a very high rate of speed. In powder is where this ski really shines since it has a 114mm waist in the 188cm length providing plenty of float. On the hard pack, the ski can hold and edge but since there is so much rocker in the tip and tail of the ski, you wonât feel very comfortable going faster than about 40mph on the corduroy.
The "jibby" feel of this ski allows it to feel very maneuverable in soft snow, and very easy to play on. The carbon flip core technology makes this ski less demanding and very aggressive in softer snow. The full sidewalls create a solid, familiar Blizzard brand, edge hold. Uni-directional carbon fiber throughout the entire lay up creates a very light, damp, and springy feel from tip to tail. The Titanal chassis that Blizzard just brought to the market this year adds control and stability underfoot.
The factory recommended mounting point is the furthest forward that I would mount on this ski, mounting center would ruin the performance completely. I will be going 1-2 cm back from recommended since I drive the tips of the skis, and prefer the feeling of a longer ski and love crushing into my boots.
I'd recommend this ski to anyone looking for a great Wasatch powder ski, for those deeper days that we see very often. This will be my do it all inbounds ski this season for dropping cliffs, slaying deep pow, and showing my friends around the resort at unreal speeds.
