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.
Find the deepest, freshest powder and charge in with the fully rockered Blizzard Bodacious skis.

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.

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)

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.
