Gear Buddy Opinion
The bonafide is a versatile flagship model for Blizzard. This ski is designed for someone who is all business no play and wants a powerful ski to charge on.
The new Bonafide comes with new core construction and a slightly more easy-going nature, but it absolutely retains the muscular DNA of previous versions. When driven from the front of the boot the ski rewards you with smooth, fully engaged carves and a remarkably damp and stable ride through any snow. Shutting down speed can be interesting for the uninitiated, this is not a playful ski that likes to break free and slarve a turn, but if you like to go fast and value power, stability, and grip you'll have a ball.
