"An impressive mix of burliness and nimbleness, the 2009 Blizzard Magnum 8.7 is an elite all-mountain ski for people who refuse to sacrifice even a bit of edge grip on firm snow. If that describes you, this is your new ski. Powerframe technology adds extra mass above the edges, combining with beefy sidewalls to deliver precise carving on anything short of concrete. Which is rather remarkable for an 87mm wide ski. Of course, the sheet of metal in the core that extends from edge to edge helps with that grip, too. And its dampness. And its stability at reckless speeds. It all adds up to this: the Magnum 8.7 wants to attack the hill, loves being on edge, and will turn for you with minimal effort. Enjoy."
