Blizzard Kabookie Skis -

Blizzard Kabookie Skis – Men’s:  The Kabookie Men’s Free Mountain ski takes the Flip Core Natural Rocker Technology and profile of our most versatile skis (98mm waist) and slims it down in to a light weight performance ski, that will go up fast and easy without sacrificing the performance on the way down.  The wood core ski is pressed into its Rockered profile without bending or shaping the ski artificially.  This is a real and noticeable difference in performance when compared to all other Rockered skis.  At 1800 grams per pair (@173cm), no metal and a wood core this ski will outperform your expectations hiking and provide kick a$$ performance on the way down!


  • Sandwich sidewall construction


  • 98-millimeter waist
  • Flipcore 3D wood core
  • Large sidecut radius
  • Tip & Tail Rocker profile
  • 1800g (per pair @173cm)
  • Vertical Sidewalls
  • Classic camber underfoot
  • Checkers Skis this Bad Boy
The Blizzard Kabookie Skis are made for hard cores who believe the only way up is putting one ski in front of the other.
Made with no metal, this ski is light to climb with.
Reach the Summt? Now for the fun - the Blizzard Kabookie, featuring Flipcore technology will perform all day long in the side-country, or wherever you feel the need to explore.

The Blizzard Kabookie Ski keeps the weight down and the performance high when you want to cruise in the backcountry. Whether it's quick-and-dirty laps or a full-on tour, this ski won't hold you back in either direction. The rockered tip and tail and ample width make it float through pow and crud; and the wood Flipcore makes it strong and responsive on the descent, whether snaking through trees or straight-running chutes. The mid-fat 98-millimeter waist and classic camber underfoot make it a nimble turner, and the sandwich sidewall construction puts precise power on the edges. This may be the most versatile (but uncompromising) of Blizzard's Free Mountain Lite series. 

Gearx (Fall 2013)

Bamboo and a double Quadrax layer create an even lighter look for the Bonafide's little brother, the Kabookie. With a lighter core and only a partial sheet of metal, the Kabookie won't weight you down in the backcountry pow, but still holds an edge on frozen morning groomers. Perfect for hiking those last few meters after the lift before losing yourself in the pleasure of making fresh tracks on the descent.


Sidecut: 133 / 98 / 118 mm

Construction: Sandwich Sidewall Double Quadrax - Poplar-Bamboo-ISO-Wood

Technology: Flip Core 3D, Sidewall

2014 Blizzard Kabookie Ski Review

Hey, this is Trey. I just got off of Blizzard's Kabookie. I'm giving this ski 4 out of 5 stars. Nothing about this ski blew me away, but it did everything really well, that's why I'm giving it 4 stars. So, if you need a ski to take out west, ski the back country, ski the front of the mountain, be in the bumps, tight trees, you can break it free if you need to, yet it still holds an edge real well, it's very, very positive and forgiving, yet you can push it if you want to, and that blend really makes it suitable to me for doing that all around kind of skiing that you might do out west. The East coast or in the Midwest, maybe not so much, but loved it for an all around ski. It's great for a solid intermediate through even a causal expert skier as an all purpose ski. So, 4 out of 5 stars.

2014 Blizzard Kabookie Ski Review

Hi, I'm Thom and I'm here with the Blizzard Kabookie. 5 out of 5 for this guy. It's sort of like the little brother to the Bonafide, it's the same shape, but it doesn't have the metal. What that gives you is a ski that's a little bit more malleable. It's not quite as demanding, but it still has that tenacious grip, that great initiation, tons of edge hold, but it's a little more playful. So, your guy that's got a little bit of a freestyle flare to their skiing, wants something that they can smear and butter, you can absolutely do it here, but when you get on the ski and you're really driving through it, it's powerful, it's solid and smooth on edge. So, anybody really intermediate and up that's looking for a one ski, do all, where they're going to split their time 50/50 between hard pack and off piste, this is it.

2014 Blizzard Kabookie Ski Review

Hi, I'm Steve and I just got off the Blizzard Kabookie. This ski I give a 4.5 out of 5 stars. It's a 98 waisted ski, I really had a lot of fun on it. It's very playful, transitions from edge to edge very quickly. I found that the ski really liked to go fast, it was very stable at high speed. It liked to make long turns, but I was surprised at actually how quick it was when I wanted to kind of go edge to edge real fast. So, it was a great ski, I would definitely recommend it as kind of an out West, all mountain ski, or for the kind of a person who just likes a little wider ski on hard pack conditions. It's a hard pack day today and it skied just like any good carving ski would ski. So, really like this ski a lot.

The Kabookie is the Bonafide without metal. Taking the metal out saves about a 1 lb per pair. The Kabookie would be a great option if you want the Bonafide shape but without the metal construction. For some people metal is a great feeling but if you're not used to it or have been skiing on fiberglass construction skis others might not like it. The Kabookie uses Blizzards proprietary Quadrax weave instead of metal so the ski still has all the same performance characteristics as the Bonafide just with a slightly lighter weight. A great Backcountry option for someone not wanting to sacrafice any performance on the down or just a different option for someone not wanting all the dampness that metal construction skis provide.

2014 Blizzard Kabookie Ski Review

I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Blizzard Kabookie. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. It's nice, it's stable, it's quick edge to edge, it's really really versatile, so you can take it in a little bit of pow, you can charge it on the hard pack and it'll really do anything you want for ya. It is very very lively, so it's quick, snappy edge to edge. It's not the most stable with the longest of turns on the firmest snow, but other than that it's a very well rounded ski. 4 out of 5.

2014 Blizzard Kabookie Ski Review

This Hans with the Blizzard Kabookie. I just skied that ski, ski is phenomenal on the high speed. It's 98 underneath the foot, so it's definitely more of a big mountain ski. It will do everything right, definitely for the advanced to expert skier. Great on long turns, a little bit harder for short turn radiuses. But definitely a ski that you can put an expert skier on to have fun all day in any conditions.
