Blizzard changes their tune a bit and brings a playful note to the Free Mountain Series with the 2013 introduction of the Blizzard Gunsmoke Skis. A slightly softer overall flex and twin tip shaping makes this 114 mm waisted ski tons of fun for those who can't help thinking of park possibilities on pow days. The twin tip makes throwing the Gunsmoke into a slarvy speed-check a no-brainer and makes switch powder turns child's play. If you live in powder country and aspire to more than old-school figure "8"'s, win over the wild west with the Gunsmoke.
Tip and tail rocker for floatation and maneuverability
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 . . .
