Blizzard Skis Bonafide sits within the classic freeride category with its 98mm under foot waist - but new materials have added to its credentials as a high-end ski for experts looking to push their limits all over the mountain.

They scored consistently highly across all of our categories and it was really only at the very lowest speeds where they fell short as you need to work them a little harder than some of the other freeride skis out there.

For strong, expert skiers who want something that's fun to ski on groomed slopes but also excels in the powder, chopped up crud or skied out lines then it's a great choice and one of our highest scoring freeride skis.

The full wood core is complimented by a sheet of Titanal that runs the full length of the ski. This provides the power and torsional rigidity that provides their ability to blast through everything in their way.

But they remain light in feel and super responsive in both short, quick turns and longer carving ones. Excellent edge grip on hardpack and a light camber underfoot gives them a balanced feel whatever the conditions.

The 'Flip Core' rocker is designed in a way that retains more strength in the rocker area, providing the feeling of power into the turn whilst helping smooth turn initiation and a little extra float in the powder, without the feeling they are 'over-rockered'.

Overall, a fun and exciting ski for experienced skiers who want something powerful, stable and reliable for a total mountain experience.
