Blizzard Bodacious Skis -
If you are on the hunt for a ski that can blaze through powder at racer speeds and then huck off 50-foot cliffs and not give you any lip about it, then you are searching for the Blizzard Bodacious Skis. Hopefully you are not faint of heart, because you would have to look elsewhere since these skis deliver like the milkman circa 1947. With a rockered profile and advanced construction methods, the Bodacious is the one ski that is bound to induce some booty shaking excitement. The tip and tail have been outfitted with some rocker so you get that nice, playful feel without the hang ups, but the section beneath your feet is flat for straight tracking and plenty of pop. Flipcore 3D Technology gives these planks a natural shape and loads of durability from the get go. A rugged graphite base and tough Phenol sidewalls equate to a robust model that can take some serious licks. The award-winning Blizzard Bodacious Skis are the future of big mountain riding, and boy is it a bright one.

Lining and Layers:

  • Bamboo Layer
  • Double layer of titanium for added stiffness

Fabric:

  • This results in equal and consistent pressure during construction and a noticeable difference how the skis perform on hard snow
  • Fully rockered skis are constructed using a specialized technique called Flipcore that maximizes the natural flex of the ski materials
  • Wood core is constructed like a sandwich, layers upon layers of CNC-milled strips reinforce each other to create a lightweight, snappy ski with smooth and easy handling
  • Sandwich sidewall construction for strong edgehold

Insulation:

  • The standard shape of a cambered wood core is "flipped" upside down to naturally match the rockered shape of the finished skis

Weather and Wind:

  • In brief, Flipcore rocker reduces the floppiness and chatter of skis on hard snow at high speeds and enhances the skis performance in soft snow
  • Although you can get back to the lifts on groomed runs with ease, the Blizzard Bodacious skis were made for deep powder snow
  • Full-length Flip Core rocker for float in deep snow

Features:

  • Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo
  • Sidecut 142 / 118 / 132 mm - Radius 32.0 m (for the 186 cm ski)
  • Requires bindings with wide brakes
  • 118-millimeter waist
  • Flipcore 3D
  • Instead of putting a ski together with standard camber and then pressing it into a rockered shape, Blizzard builds the skis into the finished shape before it is pressed
  • ISO bamboo core
  • Sidewalls offer direct power transmission, resulting in quick side-to-side response
  • Flip Core 3D technology
  • Flat underfoot
  • Weighs 2425g Per Pair (@186cm)
  • Dual titanium laminate increases snappiness and power underfoot

The Blizzard Bodacious Ski is the widest ski that Blizzard makes. With a whopping 118 under foot, this ski can handle the deepest snow without a problem. There's a double titanium layer for stiffness, and a full tip-to-tail rocker for float. The reverse-camber also helps you easily turn without getting swallowed up by the powder. When you wake up to 10 inches of fresh, the Blizzard Bodacious is the right choice.

The fully rockered Bodacious Ski is Blizzard's fattest board and it has a walloping 32-meter sidecut radius. What does this mean for you? It means ripping high speeds on big lines on big mountains and deep snow. Its means stability when your teeth chatter and snow goes up your nose. And it means shredding until delirium sets in and chomping at the bit to do it all again.

How does it work? Besides the mammoth sidecut, this ski features a Flipcore Natural rocker that literally turns the ski construction on its head. That's right, the ski is actually made upside- down in the mold so the downward-facing convex side forms the natural rocker, without having to bend or artificially shape the ski in a press. The result is incredible natural spring and lightweight floatation in powder, while retaining excellent stability and even pressure distribution. Maybe that's why you can blaze down the mountain with your hair on fire and sparks flying from the tails: it's only natural.

Evo (2014)
The Cochise's big brother, this über-ski is not for the faint of heart. Two full layers of titanal with flipcore technology pressed into a sandwich compound sidewall construction for ultimate durability and bomber stability at speed. The Blizzard Bodacious Skis are definite charging skis, meant for sending it hard and fast. The 32 meter turn radius demands a skier willing and able to tame these beasts, on a 50 degree spine in the heart of the Chugach, perhaps?

Gearx

If your idea of a good time is laying Super-G trenches down the steepest faces and most open Big Mountain terrain, look no further than the most powerful and stable ski from Blizzard; señor Bodacious. At 118mm wide underfoot, the Bodacious provides ample flotation and a solid platform for stomping huge air off natural features. Two sheets of metal and Flipcore Rocker construction give the Bodacious a damp and stable ride unlike no other. Be aware; this ski requires a driver. Quick turns and timid side-slipping need not apply. Fearless chargers and Alaskan aspirations; hop aboard.

This ski is, well, BODACIOUS

No friends on a powder day. If you ride these and wait for your buddies, you will waste half of the day. You will be a the lift before they make 5 turns on those flipped-up clown skis. These monsters will rip full speed through anything in their path. You can turn them sideways and blow off speed when needed. You can also carve looong arcs on the hard pack. The edges hold well, but it takes mighty force to make shorter turns. Not really forgiving, but what do you expect for a ski like this. If you don't think you can handle these, get a pair of Cochise's and rip up the mountain with them. I am 6'4" and 205 pounds and rode the 196 cm model about 14 of my 103 days last year. There was not a ton of pow-pow, so I rode them on the soft groomers a few days just for some high speed fun!

2013 Blizzard Bodacious Ski Review

Hey, it's Hunter here, with the Blizzard Bodacious, and this is a 4/5 star ski for me. The first thing I can say is, just point it, and let it rip. Its not very turn, there's not a lot of sidecut, enough rocker in the tip to keep you up on top of everything. The cool part about this ski, is how well you can scrub speed with it, you can point it straight, throw this ski sideways, and really just float. Get where you want to be, and then point them straight again, they don't hang up, definitely a plus about it. Exceedingly damp, really variable conditions today, little ice chunks, mixed snow, ski just plowed through everything, didn't get deflected, no issues with it at all. If your looking at the Squad 7 in that range, this is a worthy contender for someone. If your someone more traditional, and with a better hard snow manners.

You might think these skis are just for guys with huge thighs? Or only for those that crush big lines? Not true.
I love skiing on these any day. They continually impress me how well they ski on normal terrain and handle variable snow better than any ski I have tried.
If you are still nervous about getting a pair, just get the next size down and you will love how easy and versatile they really are!
Dream trip Note: I was fortunate enough to go heli-skiing in Alaska this past spring. I skied on the 196 bodacious and couldn't have been more confident and comfortable on them. (despite what you see in the movies, the snow up there changes consistency A LOT)

2013 Blizzard Bodacious Ski Review

What's going Jeff here. Blizzard Bodacious. 5 out of 5. This skis is unreal. If you're the type of skier that like a big dude, muscular, rips all day and just wants something that going to actually be a ski for him, this is it. It's two layers of metal make this thing extra beefy. 118 underfoot. Full vertical sidewall, flipcore technology, you can say enough. This ski is just remarkable for somebody my size 5'11. 170 pound I cant get this thing to even want to do what it needs to do. It's a great ski if you're out in the back you want to charge hard go fast and do everything. This is it.

2013 Blizzard Bodacious Ski Review

I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Blizzard Bodacious. 5 out of 5. This thing is an absolute monster. 118 underfoot the metal in there is big, it's burly, if you like to go big fast and straight. Blow through anything, you live somewhere that has heavy meriting snow pack or you just want a ski that can blow crud away, it's the Bodacious. It's just an absolute monster 5 out of 5. I love it.
Adam P at Skis.com on 11/11/2012

This ski is amazing, it feels like riding on railroad tracks while floating through pow. Supreme edge control and lots of stability makes them great for harder conditions as well.

2013 Blizzard Bodacious Ski Review

Hi, I'm charlie, I just got off the Blizzard Bodacious. I'm gonna give this ski 3/5 stars, it just seems a little lack lust to me. It was a little slow edge to edge, it didn't really wanna make a turn. If your looking for something big mountain, just doing straight lines, just shooting, then it's a great ski. It just seemed, if you wanna make any sort of turns, that this wouldn't be the ski for you.
