The Bodacious is a wider version of the Cochise, our 2012 Ski of the Year. A Colorado tester summed up the group's opinion when he called it " one hell of an enjoyable ride." Playful, surfy, and versatile, the Bodacious knifed through snow-choked trees and mashed chutes with equal authority. And though its width places it among powder skis, it danced on Snowbird's hardpack. We'd struggle to name a more usable powder ski.
