In the hyper competitive 100 mm class, the Blizzard Bonafide Skis have been at the top of the pile for several years. The Bonafide gets a major revamp for 2016, but hasn't lost any ground to the competition. Do your research, but all-mountain experts who want a single ski to kill it in every condition keep coming back to the Bonafide for a reason. Carbon Flip Core construction and narrower strips of Titanal reduce the swing weight and lighten up the ski overall, but the rock solid Blizzard feel at speed and in a hard-carved turn are still there in spades. If you're ready to pull the trigger on an all-mountain quiver of one, the Blizzard Bonafide Skis will undoubtedly be the best shot you've ever fired.
Rocker Camber Rocker Ski profile with rocker at the tip and tail, camber in the middle. Reducing the pressure on the edge at the tip and tail makes the ski even easier to handle and increases flotation on powder snow. The camber guarantees great grip on packed snow.
Medium Stiff Flex
Tapered Tip & Tail
Carbon Flip Core Technology In an evolution of the famed Blizzard Flip Core process, which starts with the core contour matching the intended rocker profile, 90˚ directional carbon fiber is integrated into the core at tip and tail, stabilizing the extremities of the ski while reducing swing weight. Win-win for you.
Double Titanal Laminate
Titanal Binding Interface
Sandwich Compound Sidewall All Blizzard skis with the exception of some junior skis are built with ABS or Phenol sidewalls for superior performance (stability, power transmission, handling) and durability.
Sintered Graphite Base
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Comments about Blizzard Bonafide Skis 2016:
My previous favorites (two skis ago) were the K2 Outlaws. The Bonafides have now outdone the K2s in terms of being a go anywhere, do anything quiver of one. These boards rip the groomers like my race-stock Fischer GS skis, and they power through the Northwest crud without skipping a beat. They go to 11.
In deep untracked there may be some one-trick-ponies fat boys that can handle the pow with a bit more float, but unless you're heli-skiing, you're skiing crud by 11AM anyway.
