Product Info

When comparing the Blizzard Bonafide Skis to the Cochise or Bodacious, it might seem to be the "baby-bro" of the three. However, there is nothing juvenile about this immensely well-received ski. The Blizzard Bonafide Ski is the winner of numerous awards, praised for its all-mountain effectiveness, and sells out every year. Coming in at 98 mm underfoot, it is an ideal all mountain ripper for frontside skiers who don't want to limit their options when the pow hits. Unlike the Cochise and Bodacious, the Bonafide sports a generously cambered mid section for ultimate hard snow edging performance, while retaining moderate tip and tail rocker for the occasional powder day.

Product Details

Rocker Type

3D Tip-Tail RockerMild tip and tail rocker with camber underfoot for a balance of soft snow performance and strong edging and carving.

Flipcore 3D TechnologyUnlike 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 . . .

Core

CNC 3D Poplar-Bamboo-Paulownia Isocore Woodcore with Titanium

Laminates

Spaceframe 3D1 titanal laminate layer with strategic cutouts provides optimum swing weight, balanced flex, improved torsional transmission and reduced vibrations over the whole ski.

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.

    Comments about Blizzard Bonafide Skis 2014:

    These skis were Marshawn Lynch of skis. Powered through all type of terrain and all over the mountain. I am a bigger guy and ski aggressively and the Bonafide reacted quickly and with ease. They plowed through anything like Lynch to the Broncos D.

      Comments about Blizzard Bonafide Skis 2014:

      Bought these skis based solely on reviews having been snowboarding the past 14 years. I sometimes find products don't always live up to the hype. These skis were all that and made me look good. They were stable at speed, good in the bumps and all business on edge. The only thing I noticed from my skis of the past was these didn't have explosive tail energy at the finish of a turn, but as I age, I don't miss it. The rocker on these skis also don't demand much forward drive on the front of the ski to carve, which is nice as you tire near the end of the day.
