A consensus favorite at industry testing sessions, the Blizzard Cochise Skis have been completely re-designed around the Carbon Flip Core concept. The two sheets of Titanal are still there, but no longer go wall-to-wall, and the swing weight and vibrational mass have been reduced with the new carbon tip and tail. Skiers who thought the older Cochise models required too much commitment will be pleasantly surprised by how versatile the 2016 Cochise is. Don't get us wrong, this ski doesn't ski itself, and it'll still charge as hard as you dare - but it also floats better in variable snow and turns more readily at moderate speed.
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.
Tapered Tip & Tail
Poplar-Beech Wood Core
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 the tip and tail, stabilizing the extremities of the ski while reducing swing weight. Win-win for you.
Double Titanal Laminate
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 Cochise Skis 2016:
These things rip, hands down. Really stable at high speed, enough float in deep snow, but I like that they are just 108mm under foot. Brings me back to skiing "in" powder instead of "on" powder.
