Blizzard have set the standard for a number of years in this all-mountain category by predominately producing skis that perform well first and foremost on the piste but are versatile enough to be taken off-piste and will tackle variable conditions with ease. The Blizzard Brahma 88 does just that.
The wood core of Poplar and Beech offers liveliness and pop at the end of the turn, and carbon fibre at the tips and tails stabilise the ski in the rocker areas. The result is a very stable ski that does not mind being ridden fast in rougher conditions.
A sidecut of 17m is perfect for long power turns, but because the Brahma 88's are so stable, it is possible to ski a slightly shorter length than you would normally choose so short turns would not be a problem either.
Whereas some skis in this category have lost weight in recent years, Blizzard have decided not to sacrifice the Brahma's power and stability.
In short the Brahma 88 is a ski that feels comfortable in all conditions, except perhaps in seriously deep powder where you might want to consider it's wider cousin, the Cochise 108, but if you are looking for a real all-rounder then you can't go far wrong with this ski.
