An everyday ski for the adventurous skier, the Blizzard Bonafide Skis are for those who venture off piste more often than not. With its 98mm underfoot you'll have a wide ski that can easily destroy crud and crust and float in light to medium sized powder while remaining quick enough edge to edge to lay out some serious giant slalom style carves. The Flipcore Technology is a rocker pattern created by actually molding the Bonafide upside down creating an even pressure distribution. This means that the Bonafide has smooth tip to tail edge hold and a very nimble feel overall. The Bonafide also gets 2 layers of titanium making for great torsional stiffness, bumping up the edge hold that also dampens vibrations which is sure to come in handy when in choppy and crusty snow. If you're an aggressive skier, you'll love the speed that the titanium gives you. The Bonafide has race style construction making it a great choice for skiers interested in rocker or wider skis but are apprehensive about losing hard packed performance. Regardless of the terrain you're on, the Blizzard Bonafide Skis are a masterpiece that are here to give you an amazing ski experience.

Nice Skis Delivered As Promised
Comments:
Since I just purchased these in July obviously I have not had the chance to ride the bull yet but skis.com asked me to review anyway. Instead I am reviewing the sales transaction with Skis.com. My Bonafide skis arrived shortly after placing the order (approx. 1wk) each ski individually wrapped in new ski plastic and I verified the matching serial numbers. Skis.com emailed me to inform me when the skis shipped out and also listed the tracking number. The whole transaction went smooth and would buy from them again.

Normally I buy my skis late spring or early summer and get the currentjust past seasons model that I demo'd back in DecJan. They are new and I see no reason to spend FFR when they go for 12 in July. The Bonafide changed for upcoming 201415 according to Blizzard they gave it an extra 12 sheet of titanium but considering I am normal weight (5'11 182lbs) I do not need the extra stiffness.

Powerful ski
Comments:
Great ski, super stable, repeat super stable at speed, on groomers, powder, crud,bumps, very versatile. I have pushed this ski to the limits, and it became a trusted friend. I did have a pair break on me this season. Not sure why but I do push them really hard.

Comments:
I decided to try this ski after hearing all the hype about it. It really does live up to it and I had to add it to my quiver. It's not a ski that you that you can cruise or relax on. But if you're on it, it's sipmly awesome. It loves speed, it rails and is super-stable. But the best sensation for me was the way it destroys crud or anything that gets in it's way. The tips never get hanged-up and you never get that squirly feeling. It just plows through everything and gives you wicked confidence. I also love how easy it is the break the tail free in those tight spots where you are forced to pivot quickly.
It really is an awesome ski.

Solid Ski But Burned Me Out
Comments:
I demoed these for two days in March at Vail -- one day in powder and one day in packed powder. Excellent ski on groomers and in powder. Very stable and smooth. Good flotation in the powder.

I am a heavier skier (about 230 lbs) but not in tip top shape. These skis felt heavy and burned out my legs fairly quickly. I also did not feel they had a lot of popsnap from turn to turn. That may be because I grew up skiing in Vermont on much narrower skis. My regular ski is a Volkl V-Werks RTM 84 which is much lighter and snappier than the Bonafides were.

I was glad I demoed the Bonafides for two full days but did not like them enough to buy them. This would be a good ski for a big, burly and very strong expert who wants an all mountain ski for the West and who bombs down the mountain at top speed. This did not feel like an ideal one ski quiver for Eastern US skiing.

Comments:
I skied this Ski at a demo and liked it so much that I bought it for the upcoming season. For the last few years, Blizzard has been making some remarkable skis. And the Bonafide is no exception. There is reason why if you read the magazines that all the testers rave about this ski. If you are an expert level skier that likes all conditions, this is the ski for you. This ski handles the groomers, chopped up snow and some powder remarkably well. If you are looking for a powder specific ski, look somewhere else, but if you are all over the mountain in all conditions, take a look a the Bonafide, I don't think you will be disappointed.

2014 Blizzard Bonafide Ski Review
Comments:
Hi, I'm Thom. I just got off the Blizzard Bonafide. 5 out of 5 for this thing all day long. It's one of my favorites and one of the most exciting skis out there right now. 98 under foot, so it's your super versatile dimension, it can go anywhere, it can do anything. It absolutely rails turns on hard pack. It has that finishing power that adds that, kind of flare, that excitement to the ski that a lot of other skis don't have. So real dynamic, super stable, definitely meant for either your heavier guy or your advanced skier though. It's not something that you want to put an intermediate on and hope they'll do alright. It's a demanding, powerful ski that gives you back everything you put into it.

2014 Blizzard Bonafide Ski Review
Comments:
Trey here with Blizzard's Bonafide. I give this ski 4.5 out of 5 stars. If you're aggressive, and big and powerful skier, you're going to absolutely love it, you'd probably give it 5 stars. I'm not quite that big, but I really did enjoy how stable and powerful the ski is. I think if you ski like, in the Sierra's or the Northwest, where you get a lot of heavy, thick snow, you're going to really like this ski, because it'll power through anything. Very stable, quick enough under foot to get you through about any situation, but definitely a demanding ski.

2014 Blizzard Bonafide Ski Review
Comments:
I'm Kyle. I just got off the Bonafide. This ski is a 5 out of 5. I really liked them. You can ski all over the mountain with it. You can hit pretty much groomers plus go off terrain and hit any kind of little bumps and a little bit of stashes and stuff. This ski held an edge really good even though how fast you can go, it doesn't matter. And it's still really playful on lower speeds too so it was really surprising. Once again going to give this 5 out of 5.

2014 Blizzard Bonafide Ski Review
Comments:
Hi, I'm Steve and I just got off the Blizzard Bonafide. I give this 3.5 out of 5 stars. It's really actually a very awesome ski, but it's too much ski for me. It has 2.5 sheets of metal and with 3 knee surgeries and being in my 50's, it just would tire me out within a few runs, but it's amazingly stable. If you're a big guy and you like to run your skis really hard, really load them up and give them all you got, this ski would be an amazing ski. It was extremely stable, and at fast speed, it was solid as a rock, but it was definitely for a guy that is a much stronger, bigger skier than I am.

2014 Blizzard Bonafide Ski Review
Comments:
Hey, it's Hunter here, just got off the Blizzard Bonafide. It's a 5 out of 5 ski for me. I'd give it more stars if I could. It's for the skier that's really willing to work at it. If you're in the backseat, not ready to ski, it'll beat you up, but if you want that snap out of a turn, if you want your skis airborn between carves, this thing will do it. It's a demanding race car of a ski and I love it.

A: For backcountry/sidecountry usage, I would likely recommend the Soul 7's over the Blizzard Bonafides. The added surface contact (with a waist of 106mm versus 98mm) and lighter overall weight will make them more ideal for traversing steeper conditions as w
