Blizzard Gunsmoke Skis 2014

"Best Powderski of 2014" is certainly some high praise for this year's Blizzard Gunsmoke Skis. Winning multiple awards this year, it's no wonder why people are scrambling to get their hands on one of the hottest items to come out this year. A virtually 'do-anything' ski, the Blizzard Gunsmoke will rip the hardpack, destroy the powder, and slink through crazy tight trees. Really, what more could you ask for from a ski? The Gunsmoke has a more freestyle feel and features a full twin tip construction, so that you don't sacrifice trickability when you come across an irresistible lip or kicker. Rocker in the tip and tail make this ski a contender to be a quiver killer; if you want one ski to do it all, the Blizzard Gunsmoke would be a good place to start.
Rocker Type
Rockered twin
Flipcore 3D - The Flipcore Natural rockered construction means that the ski is actually made upside-down in the mold so the downward-facing convex side forms the natural rocker, without having to bend or artificially shape the ski in a press.
 
Sidecut
[186] 22 m
Core
Poplar-Bamboo-ISO-Wood
Sidewalls
Sandwich Sidewall Double Quadrax
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: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker skis have the playfulness and float of a rockered ski as will as the added edge hold of a cambered ski. The contact points on skis with this profile are closer towards the middle of the ski than a fully cambered ski, but still not underfoot. The cambered midsection provides a longer effective edge on hardpack, increasing edge hold and stability, while the rockered tip and tail provide floatation in deeper snow and allow the ski to initiate and release from turns easier.
  • Turning Radius: Long
    Long
    > 22 m radius is best for powder and big-mountain.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
