FULL REVIEW

Blizzard’s Bodacious got “excellent” marks from all of our testers, especially in terms of its stability and for how well it laid down a confident arc anywhere from powder to the hardpack on the way back to the chair. Technical skiers who like leave clean lines in the off-piste will be very impressed with the performance and aggressive handling of this ski.

It lost marks for lack of float, and also for its inability to make short swing turns without feeling pushed. We recommend the Bodacious for advanced skiers who like to slice powder and blast crud with authority.
