OK, for you gear gurus I have a couple of questions. I have searched the interweb high and low, (including this site), and I have not been able to identify this pair of Blizzard skis, (see the skis on the right in the photo below). I demo'd these bad boys last spring at Bogus Basin, but I can't remember the model and I'm not even sure which local shop was doing the demos that day. On a spur of the moment decision, my friend and I decided we wanted to demo some skis. We skied over to the setup area and I told the technician that I wanted to ski the stiffest, fastest ski that they had out there that day. He set me up with this pair and they did seem to the profile of an aggressive, fast front-side carver! They would have sold that pair to me on the spot for $500, but I wasn't prepared to make that spur of the moment commitment.
What is the model / year?
Would you recommend them, or something else as a fast, stiff "front-side" ski? (BTW, I don't need an "all-mountain" ski, I have plenty of skis in my quiver) I just want something very similar to a GS racing ski at a good price point.
