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.

The Blizzard Bonafide is a very solid directional charger: It has a damp construction with two layers of titanal that absorbs vibrations before rattling your fillings. And, the Bonafides have great edge hold and stability at high speeds through variable terrain. Former racers and aggressive skiers who like to drive the ski aggressively through the tip will love this ski for high-speed medium to long radius turns in a mix of firmer snow and softer Western powder.

For sure, more rockered, "playful" skis (like the Blizzard Rustler 10) may offer better float in deep snow and be more forgiving and more appropriate for more Cautious, tentative skiers. And for pure carving, narrower front-side skis will be quicker edge-to-edge. But the Bonafides are a great choice for an aggressive skier who needs one pair of skis for a mix of firm groomers and softer snow off-piste.

Pros
  • Stability at Speed
  • Edge Hold on Firm Snow
  • All-Mountain Versatility for Eastern and Western Conditions
Cons
  • Not a very forgiving ski
  • Heavy - -that's great for stability, but the ski is not playful

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.
