Description: Blizzard Bonafide Skis

The highly acclaimed 2016 Blizzard Bonafide Skis are back for another year of freeride dominance with numerous awards to back the name. With a combination of tip and tail rocker with positive camber underfoot, these Bonafide Skis shine in all conditions by providing superior float in soft snow and excellent control on edge and through turns on hard pack. Their Carbon Flipcore construction helps calm tip and tail chatter of a rockered ski by placing bi-directional carbon fiber at the tip and tail. This, in turn, also reduces swing weight. Take a ride on the bull and you'll be hooked longer than 8 seconds, that's for certain.

Favorite Spots: Mt. Hood, Crystal Mountain

Background: Tim grew up in Portland and started skiing at the Powderhound Ski School at Mt. Hood at age 10. He moved to Bend after high school and got into freestyle and park skiing at Mt. Bachelor, and backcountry skiing in the surrounding area. Eventually Tim moved back to Portland and started splitting ski time between the more big-mountain technical terrain around Crystal Mountain and the playful terrain at Mt. Hood. Tim has been part of the US Outdoor Store family since 1998 working in the ski and snowboard service and repair, ski, boot & binding sales, and camping & climbing departments.
Conditions on test day: 23 degrees, 3-4" Powder, wind pack, chopped powder, crud, fast groomers.

Two thoughts that came to mind immediately on these skis - "well made", and "trustworthy". Somehow you can feel the quality of the construction of the ski underfoot. Very clean and even flex pattern. You can make these skis do whatever you want, mix up speeds, big turns, quick turns, but more than anything this ski likes to go fast, and feels super comfortable doing so. I definitely found myself skipping some of the more jibby parts of my test run on these guys because I was having too much fun going fast. "No room for a car seat on this one" as James would say. The two top sheet metal give this ski a satisfying weight and a damp feel in the best possible way. Great ski for just about everything except the deeper powder days, if a little on the faster end of the spectrum. I skied the 187, and although it was super fun trying to find the speed limit on them (which I didn't), I would pick the 180s for a bit more fun factor and versatility.
