Blizzard Scout Skis 2014

Blizzard
Shop all Blizzard
Blizzard set out to make an all-mountain shredder that was more inclined to backcountry days, and according to the Skiers Choice and Backcountry Gear Guide Select Awards, it looks like they succeeded with the Blizzard Scout Skis. Testers report that the Scout skis with much of the same performance as the Blizzard Corhise but just a dash more of a backcountry-friendly style. With 108 mm underfoot and Blizzard's Flipcore Natural Rocker, the Scout shreds new snow just as hard as it rips apart groomers. Not quite a pow ski, not quite a carver, but equally comfortable in both situations, the Scout could be your new favorite ski.
Rocker Type
Full rocker
Flipcore Natural Rocker - 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.
 
Sidewalls
Better energy transmission - Constant edge pressure over the entire length of the ski. Dynamic force distribution from edge to edge
Increased torsional stiffness - Stable edge grip, perfect control, highest carving performance
Increased impact strength - Direct handling, increased stability of the entire construction, longlife construction, more impact resistant
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Alpine Touring
    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.
    Alpine Touring
    Also known as backcountry skis, alpine touring (AT) skis are designed for going uphill as well as downhill. These skis are typically light for their width and many feature fittings that accept climbing skins. AT skis vary in width and weight, with the wider heavier versions usually used for winter/deep snow touring and the skinnier, lighter skis usually used for spring/summer/long distance touring.
  • 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
    Rocker
    Rocker (also called reverse-camber) is just as it sounds – camber turned upside down. Rocker skis have a side profile with a smooth downward curvature and a contact point at the middle of the ski. Rocker skis excel in deep powder. This profile provides the skis with less tip and tail hang up to prevent from catching edges and allows the skis to initiate turns extremely quickly. This profile doesn’t perform as well in icy conditions or on harder snow but if you spend lots of time in deep, untracked snow and like a more playful ski, Rocker is a great choice.
  • Turning Radius: Long
    Long
    > 22 m radius is best for powder and big-mountain.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Partial Twin Tip
    Partial Twin Tip
    Partial twin tip skis have a tail that is turned up, but not as much as the tip. This gives you the ability to ski backwards and back out of tight spaces, but these skis are mainly designed to ski forward.
