Blizzard Magnum 8.5 Ti (2013)

Blizzard Magnum 8.5 Ti (2013)
Gold Medal Gear
Tester's Review

On the spectrum of East Coast snow conditions, the Magnum 8.5 is most at home on firm groomers: No. 1 in Hard-Snow Grip, No. 2 in Stability. It's such an eager, confidence-inspiring, cheater-GS carver that it shouldn't be expected to do much else. But throw in an 85-mm waist width and just a touch of rocker and it handles soft, uneven snow with sufficient ease. It's a strong ski for strong technicians, with a solid edge and a love of speed. Weak input won't inspire it, but when spurred by an aggressive expert, it comes to life. Notes: With tip and tail rocker and a waist wide enough for variable conditions, the 8.5 is designed for advanced experts who like to explore. Sandwich sidewall construction with a Spaceframe Titanal layer (with cutouts to reduce swing weight); full wood core. Sold flat.
