The Blizzard Cochise is a high-end, high-octane, freeride ski designed for experts who like to make big turns on big faces. We put it through its paces on test in Austria and found it requires both strength and skill to tame.

This is certainly a ski for strong riders who want something powerful and fast for ripping around the kind of places mummy wouldn't want you to go.

It stomped around on piste too, enjoying the chance to carve up anything groomed - providing you want to ride fast and make big, long radius turns.

In the powder, it revels in destroying anything in its path without a care for what gets in the way. It'd be happiest travelling in a straight line down the steepest slopes and off the biggest cliffs, the only limitation being the rider themselves.

The downside to all of this is that it gets moody once you start asking it to perform more technical manoeuvres. It's too much to handle in tighter spots and starts to feel damp when you make quicker turns.

Not as lively or responsive as some other freeride skis on the market, but if you're a strong skier who likes to ride fast and furious then this certainly ticks all the boxes.
