New Blizzard ski

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I currently have the Blizzard Peace Makers that have a 104 waist and I love them. I am going to be adding to my quiver with a narrower ski.

I am a strong skier but I am usually pretty reserved because I can't afford to get hurt. I love to let loose a few times a day thugh. I've been thinking about the Latigo but has anyone skied the Power series?

So my other question is,if you could have any Blizzard ski you wanted that would be compatable with my Peace Makers what would you get?

Look at the Latigo to compliment the Peacemaker

That is my current idea. I haven't had a chance to ski it but Ive heard it was a bump ski. I prefer a longer turn radius. What's your opinion if you have skied it?

My next choice currently is the black pearl but I don't really want a purple ski.

I wish they didn't discontinue the bushwacker...

Myself, I'm at the far ends of the Blizzard spectrum... WRC and Bodacious. :)

Both the Latigo and Brahma will bring a smile to your face, if it's going to be mostly a groomer ski or if you like bumps, Latigo will fit the bill.  If you want to have it a little more versatile with deeper and cut up snow, the Brahma has a slight edge.

Have you considered the Brahma?  It's narrow enough to be a good compliment to your Peacemakers, but still wide enough that it's pretty versatile.  Rips groomers, but still will play around off piste if you want it to.  Personally I think that's a pretty good quiver, 88mm and 104mm waist.  If you want to go narrower, the Latigo is a lot of fun, but it's most at home on groomers.  Does pretty well in bumps, but most of our staff prefers the Brahma.

The Latigo is a great option. Great on groomers, bumps and skied out trees. Very versatile narrow ski.

Something narrow, something fast.

Whichever WRC comes with the piston plate.

Easy! Women's WC FIS GSin 188 or 183.

i am not a fan of the WRC or similar because they tend to be built for lighter weight juniors. One of the guys down in Chile with us was on the Nordica equivalent ski in 184 and,what I suspected, it was basically folding up under him. i know people are attracted to them because of the nominally smaller radius but the flex is much more important and it is well dialed in on all the 188/30s

I would look for something 85-90mm underfoot, 18-20m sidecut, camber underfoot with a touch of early rise at the tips and tails. Metal vs wood core would depend on your weight, but I would go with wood just to make it a bit less demanding.

A GS ski for a caution skier? Uh...yea.

I find the 186 and 182 WRC to be different creatures. And im sure Daniella Carccerelli bends her WRC's better than we bend anything in our closets. No doubt a proper GS ski would be better for gates, but we severely digress.
