Gear of the Week: Blizzard M-Power FS IQ Max

Gear of the Week: Blizzard M-Power FS IQ Max

Dek: 
This ski is sitting by the door, waiting for the mountains to open.

Now that the snow is sticking in the mountains we’re waiting with bated breath to see which resort is going to open first, and starting to think about those first few icy, crowded turns. Even if the snow is man-made, and you end up sharing half a run with the entire population of metro Denver, skiing is skiing. Our pick for skis on the first day out is the Blizzard M-Power FS IQ Max, a high-performance carver that’s still easy to ski.

It ranked high in our gear test for stability at speed and hard snow performance, so it rips corduroy without chatter, but it really shines coming out of a turn.  An underfoot piston controls rebound energy, making the skis de-camber slowly, which makes for elevator music-smooth transition.
