Product details

The iconic Bonafide, long-praised for its masterful combination of technical performance and all-mountain versatility, is made to attack the mountain with grace and precision. From crushing through crud, to laying it down on hard pack, to navigating your way through untouched pow in the trees, they’re the ultimate all-conditions daily driver for committed skiers. The TrueBlend Woodcore specifically targets the flex throughout the ski, with a softer tip and tail that keeps you nimble. Denser wood underfoot acts like a gas pedal, giving you the power and drive when you want to charge. Combined with a versatile sidecut and a reduced rocker profile, the Bonafide is the perfect blend of Austrian engineering and real-world testing that’ll keep you skiing confidently, even on those less-than-perfect days.

Who is this product good for?
The Blizzard Bonafide 97 is a ski for advanced and expert skiers. Its 97mm waist is a versatile size that can handle some powder but shines on hard-pack and variable conditions. The Bonafide's stiff flex, long section of camber, and flatter tail make it a more stable ski that likes to be skied hard and could feel too demanding for beginner skiers.

A great do-it-all mountain charger! A race ski feel with the versatility and gusto to handle chop, crud, and varied terrain with ease. A metal laminate makes this ski damp and stable while providing a responsive and progressive turn both on-piste and providing that stability off-piste. At 97 underfoot, this ski is as approachable as they come for an all-mountain ripper for the more advanced skier!

Crudbusting. These are bulldozers. They have 2 layers of metal in them and just want to charge. It takes a competent pilot to maneuver these things, but when driven well, they take no prisoners. Point these downhill and blast through anything that's in your way.

All mountain skiing! From chop to powder - wider waist on these guys can handle boot to knee deep powder if it comes and still be a contender on the groomers with the best carving skis!

Better on the front side than a lot of other all-mountain skis. Blizzard has a racing background.
