The Old Standbys

Blizzard’s classic lineup of men’s skis—the Bodacious, Cochise, Bonafide, and Brahma—come back for another year of intra-mountain domination. Last year’s Brahma CA has a fresh look (far right) and a new name for 2019. Say hello to the Bushwacker.

Rustling Up Winners

One of the most impressive new lines of skis a year ago was Blizzard’s Rustler, known as the Sheeva on the women’s side. This year, the freeride series gets even better with the addition of the Rustler 9 and the Sheeva 9 at 94mm and 92mm underfoot respectively.

The Rustler 11 and 10 return, with a fresh blue topsheet for the latter, alongside a little brother: the Rustler 9.

The Sheeva 9 rounds out Blizzard’s series of three stellar women’s freeride skis.

The Sheeva 9 and the Rustler 9 for the most part mirror the construction of their wider associates. The chief difference: Blizzard extended the titanal underfoot to optimize the narrowest skis in each respective line for all-mountain/hard-snow performance.

First Take from OR On-Snow: The Rustler 9 is worthy of the “Rustler” name—our staffers loved it at the Outdoor Retailer on-snow demo. From Matt M: “Last year, the Rustler 10 was my favorite new ski. This year, the Rustler 9 is certainly in the running.” From Justin: “Super versatile and a perfect East Coast ski.” From Zack: “This thing rips on groomers and is great in the bumps.”
