Returning for 2014, the award-winning Blizzard Cochise Skis are one of the best "one ski quivers" on the market. The rocker/flat/rocker profile with Flipcore Technology is the key. Rocker in the tip and tail provides easy turn initiation and powder performance, while the flat midsection enables incredibly smooth edge to edge transitions and carving on hardpack. All of this is enabled by Blizzard's unique flipcore technology, in which traditional cambered cores have been flipped for a more natural rocker molding process. Take the Blizard Cochise Skis out for a spin and see for yourself what all the buzz is about.
Rocker Type
Rocker/Flat/Rocker - Tip and tail rocker with a flat section underfoot enables smooth turn initiation in any conditions.
Core
Flipcore 3D Technology - Unlike most other companies, who start with a cambered core and "bend" it in the mold to create a rockered ski, Blizzard starts with a rockered core and components in the first place - everything goes into the press in the same shape as it comes out. Sound like marketing BS? Sure, except for the fact the the Flipcore skis have received almost universal praise from experts in their short time on the market. Maybe Blizzard is onto something here . . .
 
CNC 3D Poplar-Bamboo-Paulownia Isocore Woodcore with Titanium
Laminates
Spaceframe 3D - 2 Titanal laminate layers with strategic cutouts provide optimum swing weight, balanced flex, improved torsional transmission and reduced vibration.
Sidewalls
Sandwich Compound Sidewall (Ti)
Base
Strong Graphite Base
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Powder
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Powder
    These skis are for the deep days. If you like to find powder stashes at your local resort, go on backcountry missions for the freshest of fresh or heli ski trips to BC, powder skis are what you need to stay afloat. Skis in the powder category are wide and most often have some form of rocker or early rise plus a relatively soft flex. Many powder skis today are versatile enough to handle mixed conditions and harder snow.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker is a variation on the rocker theme that seeks to provide a little more hard snow edgehold and pop than full rocker while retaining ease of turning and float. Performance is between a fully rockered ski and a rocker/camber/rocker ski.
  • Turning Radius: Long
    Long
    > 22 m radius is best for powder and big-mountain.
  • Core/Laminates: Bamboo, Metal, Wood
  • Tail Type: Partial Twin Tip
    Partial Twin Tip
    Partial twin tip skis have a tail that is turned up, but not as much as the tip. This gives you the ability to ski backwards and back out of tight spaces, but these skis are mainly designed to ski forward.

New for 2014, the Salomon STH2 13 takes the place of both the STH Driver 12 and 14 in the lineup. Incorporating a number of changes designed to improve leverage and power transmission, especially with wider skis, the STH2 13 features longer toe arms, a 3D Driver toe pivot like its predecessor, and a wide platform heel taken from the Guardian AT binding. If you've grown accustomed to the bomber performance of the STH Driver bindings, get ready for even more of the same from the STH2. Note: Mounting pattern is different from the old model STH, and brakes are not swappable between these models. Compatible with all ISO Alpine soles and all Salomon WTR sole blocks.
Toe Piece
3D Driver Toe - Salomon's trademark Driver Toe delivers the burl where you need it.
 
Micro Simultaneous Wing Adjustment - Toe wings adjust with a simple screw.
XL Wings - New longer toepiece wings provide superior lateral power transmission, better centering and easier step in in powder.
Manual Toe Height Adjustment
+Elastic Travel - Superior elastic travel gives you a chance to ski out of that situation until you really need it to release.
XL Stomp Pedal - A fixed, wide pedal under your boot gives you optimal power transmission.
 
Wide Platform - A 73 mm wide platform under the toepiece ensures maximum power transfer with wide skis.
 
Heel Piece
Heel Flex Interface - This feature allows your ski to flex naturally underfoot while keeping you and your bindings connected.
Additional Features
Low Profile Chassis - A low stand height of only 18 mm keeps you close to the ski for improved snow feel.
Progressive Transfer Pads - Pads under the binding base enhance feel and increase dampening.
 
Freeski Brakes - The new design features enhanced deployment for wide skis and a new mounting system without the traditional metal tabs and no screws. Freeski brakes are not compatible with older STH heels.
 
WTR Technology - This binding is compatible with all ISO Alpine soles and Salomon WTR (Walk-to-Ride) touring and tech soles.
 
Ski Compatibility
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
