Blizzard Bonafide Ski Review

The Blizzard Bonafide skis perfectly in the steps of its previous models, whether cruising groomers or dipping into the trees to find that stash you found!

In our test at Copper Mountain’s SIA on-snow show this January, the Bonafide performed like a champ in the powder/ packed powder conditions we encountered. Find out more in my review below:

Blizzard Bonafide 133mm

Like Blizzard’s wider, powder oriented Cochise, the Bonafide uses flip-core technology to give the advantage of the feel of a traditional hard-charging ski with the added modern advantage of a nice tip rocker.

It offered up a quick edge to edge transfer that was nice on groomed slopes but had just enough width underfoot to keep afloat when we got into the pow in Spaulding Bowl on the backside of Copper.

Ski Dimensions

It’s dimensions: 133mm tip_98mm mid_118mm tail, available in lengths of 166, 173, 180 and 187cm offer up the Bonafide to a large group of skiers looking for an all-mountain charger for any snow conditions.

Carbon in the tip and tail of the ski make for a great swing weight in situations where you may need to make jump turns or maneuver through tight trees or rocks, and the sheets of metal and carbon layered together to make the Bonafide feel exceptionally stable underfoot.

Overall Impression

This ski seems like a great choice for those seeking the legendary “One Ski Quiver – $699” necessary to perform anywhere on the mountain at any time throughout the season!
