Pros: Extremely versatile
2013 Blizzard Samba
While they all have a place in a nice west coast quiver, its the Samba that gets out on the hill most of all.
I've had the chance to take the Sambas out in a variety of conditions including spring crud, slop, refrozen chunks and powder, but the condition we've had to ski most of all is man made groomers. The Sambas continue to amaze me with how well they make RRX on the firmest of days.
Its been a while since they've had a chance at powder but I'm sure they'll ski powder as well as I remember.
At the end of the day, there is only one phrase to remember.......I'm always ready to Samba!
