I was just wondering if anyone has had the opportunity to demo both the 2013 Blizzard Magnum 8.0 CA and 2013 Blizzard Magnum 8.0 Ti and how they compared?
I would also be curious as to how they compare with last years 2012 Blizzard Magnum 8.1 (not sure about Rocker/Flipcore).
I live in the Mid-West and own many hard snow race carvers but want to add something more versatile for that rare natural snow day, Spring slop and maybe a future trip West. A ski that can handle the hard stuff, float in the soft stuff and plow through crud (truly all terrain). I also want something that's fairly easy to ski on our 400' of vertical and not too wide. Many of the ski's I've demoed in this category are just too burly for the Mid-West and need to be pushed really hard to perform. I don't want to have to ski this particular ski as hard as I do my race ski's but still want some stabilty and edge grip when I do.
I'm really partial to Blizzard but open to others such as the new Rossignol Pursuit HP or Head Rev.
Please let me know your thoughts, thanks!
