For nearly a decade, the Blizzard Bonafide has ruled the mountain. And when we say “ruled,” we are talking about Eminem around the turn of the millennium. Belichik on his way to six Super Bowl rings. Honnold scaling El Cap. Streep snagging Oscars. Skis may exist in a more niche corner of society (aka: the world of snow-loving weirdos), but we promise the Bonafides stack up with other exemplars of dominance. Now for 2020-2021, Blizzard has updated their design to feature a newly imagined wood core. They call it TrueBlend. With softer and lighter wood in the tips and tails and sturdier wood underfoot, TrueBlend evens the flex pattern of the skis to smooth out your ride and make the Bonafide 97 a little more accessible and intuitive in all types of snow. You bolster that design with two sheets of metal, and you get a strong and badass ski purpose-built to devour any type of snow anywhere on the mountain. Think of these updates as more refinement than alteration. This is still a ski for advanced skiers. So if you are more of a cruiser or intermediate type, take a close look at the Blizzard Rustler 9 or 10. Dominance is not built in a day, kind of like Rome. It takes cold, hard commitment...and a pair of Bonafides. Similar skis: Salomon Stance 96, Volkl Mantra M5, Nordica Enforcer 100.
