It's almost impossible to find a ski tester with an unkind word to say about the Blizzard Bonafide, and that universal acclaim is unlikely to waver this winter. Nearly unbeatable as a do-everything 98mm waisted ski, the Bonafide smoothly crushes any terrain it encounters, from steep, gnarly chutes, to frozen corduroy and chopped up back bowls. The addition of Carbon Flipcore technology to the classic Bonafide construction of two sheets of metal supporting a burly, full wood core, makes the ski damp, precise, and predictable. Underfoot camber grips the worst snow, while rockered extremities ease turn initiation and enhance float in the softer stuff. A burly, stable beast that has earned the respect of skiers worldwide, the Bonafide continues to be one of the most versatile skis on the mountain. Any mountain.Though new and unmounted, this ski picked up some minor superficial blemishes in our store. This light scratching on the topsheet will not impact peformance.
