Blizzard Crush for Intermediate Male

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

What do you think of this ski for my Dad...and a somewhat companion ski to my Head IM88?

 

I'm looking for skis for my Dad a young 60 year old who visits me in Colorado and has really been getting into western skiing and the possibility of venturing off piste more.  I found a crazy deal on Blizzard Crush skis w/ IQ Max 14 bindings.  Is this the same ski as The One?  He's only ever ski'd narrow carver skis and can handle groomed blacks.  Would this be a good ski for him?...w/ twin tip and rocker I thought it would turn well for him and give hime decent support in chop/ powder. He's 6' and 160ish pounds, doesn't ski too fast.  Binding is adjustable? (So I could also use them too?)  170 or 176?

I just bought these for $199 including shipping off of skis.com.  Went with 176 length.

 What a great deal ... I have that exact ski, and love it. It is the same ski as The One (which my son skis), at least that's what I was told. 

 

Gosh, I almost want another pair, at that price. But that would be silly.
