I had an unusual occurrence out at Aspen Highlands with a pretty new pair of Blizzard (magnum ti 8) that I bought new at the end of last season and only skied in a handful of times. During a morning 'performance' lesson on only blue runs (and one blue mogul run) the back of one ski bent pretty significantly. In fact, even the edges were creased. Since we didn't do any jumps, and I had no major falls (just a couple sit-downs in the moguls), this could only have happened on the moguls, perhaps standing on the ski between moguls (?). The instructors were in agreement that this was pretty unusual, and they reported good experiences overall with Blizzard skis (my own are kind've mixed- I liked the skis, but I've had Atomic, Line, and Salomon skis that I beat the garbage out of and lasted years, these bent after some blue runs and only a few trips). I'll reserve final judgment until after the warranty claim is handled though- anyone can make a defective ski. Personally I'd have a hard time believing that they bent in such innocuous conditions, but an instructor and an older lady were there for the entire morning ski to witness the lack of interesting activity.
I noticed at least one other post with a couple people mentioning bent Blizzard skis (though usually after jumps), and I was wondering if anyone else had such problems with their Blizzards (or Magnum ti 8) bending toward the back end, or Blizzard's handling of the warranty for such damage.
Any thoughts or experiences are appreciated.
