Nowadays there is not just fast and forward; there's fast, forward, backward, sideways, and spinning. The cool kids know this, and they ride the Blizzard Gunsmoke Ski, a powderhound twin-tip with rockered tip and tail, a nice ample waist, and generous sidecut radius. This surfy ski lives to change it up slopestyle and find new ways of riding on snow. The Flipcore Natural rockered construction means that 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 that you need on the firmer stuff. Combine that with a mixed arsenal of powerful sidewall construction and energetic yet smooth wood core, and who knows what you'll invent on this ski? The Gunsmoke is the fatter of two skis in Blizzard's Free Mountain Twin series.
With powder-seeking, 114mm waists and naturally rockered tips and tails, the Blizzard Gunsmoke skis offer advanced skiers a lightweight, playful ride in the deep stuff.

Want a playful powder ski with a high performance edge? This is your ski. I brought 2 pairs of skis with me to Alaska this past spring. 193 Gunsmoke and 196 Bodacious. I loved them both. The difference is versatility. The gunsmoke can be skied by anyone just about anywhere. When I step into a gunsmoke, I just think to myself, this run is going to be FUN.
I am 6'1, 165lbs. If you want to charge harder and spin less, go up a size and you will love it. If you want something to hit jumps on and still ski big pow lines, your "comfort" size will be perfect.
