Hi, this Hans. I just came off the Blizzard Cochise. The Cochise is 108 underneath the foot. For conditions like today where it's super hard pack, this ski might just be a tad wide, you have to definitely lay them out, have a little wider stance to make the ski roll but it's real easy to initiate a turn with a Flipcore. Flipcore means they basically put the core upside-down into the ski but also holds really well in high speeds. I give this ski a 5 out of 5 for the advanced to expert skier.

Hey, I'm Mike. I just got off the Blizzard Cochise. 5 out of 5 for this ski. If you're looking for a step up from the Bonafide this would be it. At 108 underfoot, it's got 2 sheets of metal so it's really stiff, it's really wide. It's a lot of fun. I'd say this would be for somebody that is spending 70% of their time off-trail and 30% on-trail. It's going to bust through everything. It's going to ski powder really well but it will also lay down a really nice arc if you need to, if you just get stuck on the frontside all day. It's not going to be a bad choice. Really though for a wide ski it's going to be someone who is looking to go big mountain type riding. Cochise - 5 out of 5.

Hi, I'm Ryan. I just got off the Blizzard Cochise. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. For a big mountain skier that's advanced and wants a ski that you really just haul down the mountain, this one's good at 27m turn radius for this size. It also works great for the person who is out there in the powder but then wants Super G style turns in the way back in. you can really just set the edge and it holds and rips for as long as you want. Overall, really nice ski.

Hi, I'm Thom and I just got off of the Blizzard Cochise. This is a 5 out of 5 ski for me all day long. This ski is the absolute definition of a freight train. It has absolutely no speed limit. It continues to be stable the faster you push it. Edges absolutely charges. I definitely wouldn't put anybody in the intermediate realm or lower on this. This really requires and advanced and upward type skier. But if you're looking for something that's super stable, tons of power and will just plow through anything, the Cochise is absolutely the ski you're looking for. 5 out of 5 stars.

I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the new Blizzard Cochise. This thing is a beast. It's a 5 star ski for a big strong aggressive skier. It's not the most maneuverable so if you're looking for something big, fast and straight, this is a great ski for you. Blizzard added a little bit of taper to the tip so they made it a little bit more maneuverable in the soft snow but if you are big aggressive guy looking for a big aggressive ski, this is the one to go to. 5 out of 5.

Hi, I'm Andy. This is the Blizzard Cochise. This is a great ski for me. It's very heavy. Great at high speed. I don't think this thing really has a speed limit. It's a expert all-mountain wide ski. Great for long turns, very stable. Surprisingly actually very nimble with short turns as well. I give it 5 stars.
