Tthe Blizzard Bushwacker Ski loves the pristine backcountry just as much as you do. Its rockered tip and tail and 125-millimeter tip floats like a dream in pow. But backcountry conditions vary from aspect to aspect, top to bottom, and the Bushwacker is ready, with a versatile mid-fat waist and slight camber underfoot. Its sandwich sidewall construction gives power to its edges and precision to its turns, so if trees or tight chutes are calling, you can answer with nimble ease. The Flipcore 3D wood core give tip-to-tail strength and rebound that suits every terrain. Without heavy lamination or stringers, this ski glides uphill, but its large radius sidecut keeps you going fast and stable. This is the easiest-turning ski in Blizzard's Free Mountain Lite series.
Light quick turning, agile yet hold solid on eastern hard pack (ice)
Hidden in the shadow of it all-star big brother "Bonafide" this little gem provides a nice ride on a wide range of conditions.
I like to ski on the edge of the trail, in the un-groomed crud, where the "Bonafide" shines... but the Bushwacker is right on it's heals for crud bashability. Yet in the bumps I didn't find myself stepping on the heal of the thinner Bushwacker, and chasing my son and wife down the groomers the "Bushwacker" felt solid. I like to ski many styles of turns, not just carve. The "Bushwacker" is responsive at the tip and tail and really shines for those who can keep their weight centered over the boot... yet when I do mess up and find myself on my heals or shovel I don't land in the trees. One of the nices one-quiver boards I've every had the pleasure to slide on. Get out and try a pair and you may find your hidden stash too!
