Blizzard Samba Ski - Women's: The Samba, the latest in the Blizzard Women’s Free Mountain category, built with the Revolutionary Flip Core Technology and a light weight bamboo core with no metal. The bamboo 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. The Blizzard Samba ski is an all mountain mid-fat ski for advanced ladies looking for the one ski to do it all! The Blizzard Samba is 98mm underfoot and shares similar qualities to the Bonafide but on a much lighter, more supple chassis designed specifically for the advanced and expert woman. With rocker tip and tail and slight camber under foot, this ski will float like a dream and still dice the turns on the groomed. The Blizzard Samba is a strong performer at high speeds and excels in wide turns. This ski is a versatile and stable performer.
The sveltest of the Free Mountain skis, the Blizzard Samba Women's Ski may also be the most versatile. A slim (by freeride standards) waist and moderate turn radius give the Samba lightning-quick responsiveness; and sandwich-sidewall construction and camber underfoot give it razor-sharp precision and power. But this sassy board also features fat Flipcore Natural rockered tip and tail for easy-peasy float in deep snow and turn initiation. This revolutionary Natural rocker comes from upside-down molded core, not bent like other skis, for a, yes, more natural feel. A super-light ISO and wood core with tough and sustainable (Earth-friendly) bamboo stringers keep the board stable and strong at high speeds. Now you can keep that fine figure and still slay every aspect on the hill.
Launch off the lip and find a rhythm all your own with the women's Blizzard Samba skis. They attack any terrain with rocker designed to reduce chatter on hard snow and maneuver well in soft snow.

Women's version of the popular Bonafide. The Samba utilizes the same sidecut and rocker profile as the Bonafide but with a lighter weight construction. The two sheets of metal found in the Bonafide are removed as the core is slightly ligher to make for a lighter slightly softer ski but without sacraficing torsional stiffness. These skis have great grip on hard snow but are soft enough to absorb terrain and float in pow. A great ski for the female rippers or aspiring female rippers.
