The Blizzard Brahma got a nice upgrade this season with the addition on the Carbon Flip Core Construction. Carbon Flipcore has directional carbon fiber inserted into the rockered portions of the tip and tail for a lighter feel, even more stability, and easier maneuverability. Carbon Flipcore also makes the Brahma a tad more forgiving that it has been in the past, to allow a wider range of skiers to enjoy the ride. A Dual Ti Layer with a Ti Binding Interface still makes the Brahma impressively stable at high speeds, and makes this ski a favorite for bigger, stronger, more aggressive skiers to carve fast turns on the groomers, charge through the bumps, at hit some off piste terrain with as much speed as possible. If you like to go fast, love stability and want a ski that is engineered just for that the Blizzard Brahma is the ski for you.

Q: I currently own a pair of Blizzard latigo's in 177cm and love everything about them. They are starting to get a little long in the tooth and I am thinking about replacing them with a Brahma in 180cm. I am 5'11" 215 lbs strong advanced, east coast skier and am wondering if I am going to notice much difference between these two skis. The latigos are great in short to medium turns and awesome in the bumps, and I don't want to give up those attributes. I am open to suggestions.

A: The Brahma will feel slightly longer turning both in the bumps and on the groomers, but nothing that should inhibit you. If you were going out to just pound zipper lines in the bumps all day, I would stay with the Latigos, but you will find the Brahma much more versatile, while still being very strong in the terrain that you are using them for.

Q: HI, I'm 5'-11" and 178 Lbs. I consider myself to be at the bottom of the advanced range. I ski in Colorado/Utah/Tahoe and like to do bumps, trees and carve on groomers. I would use another ski for deep powder. I need help to decide between the 173cm or 180 cm in this ski.

Q: Greetings! Age 46, 5'9" tall and 220lb. Just got back into skiing after 20 year hiatus but have rekindled quickly. Ski east coast and Snowshoe mostly. Not overly aggressive or ski fast but like to cruise and play some. Have an 11 year old who is learning quickly to keep up with. Much thanks.

Q: Hi, I am 5'8" 175 lbs. I am an aggressive advanced skier who loves to carve. I ski eastern mountains mostly on packed powder and cord. I go skiing with my wife, 4 and 6 year old. I need a ski that will be fine for runs where I am helping them slowly down the mtn but than ready to rip for when I get to take a few runs for myself. I was looking at the 173s paired with the Marker Griffon 13 ID. Is the 88 waist going to be to beefy? Is there something else I should look at?

A: Based on your weight and ability I would recommend the 180cm Brahma for you. This ski will work perfectly for the conditions and terrain that you want to ski, but you may feel it a bit fatiguing when you are skiing with the kids. The 173 would be easier to ski with the kids, but you would lose a bit of stability when you get some daddy laps.

Q: I'm 5'10" 164 lbs. 66yrs old. Advanced / Expert Skier. Ski Windham, NY ( very few expert trails, easy mountain ) for the close trip and Stowe Vt. ( Mt Mansfield only ) for the long trip. National, Lift Line etc. Just bought a pair of Brahma's 2016 / 180 cm. at 40 % off. Couldn't resist the price ! Last pair of skis I used were Rosi 9s / 201's, haven't skiied in 4/5 years. Thought I had a knee injury but am ok. I ski moguls and typical east coast conditions. How will these skis handle in eastern powder, from 6 - 18 inches on average. What about western powder. I've read the reviews and see it's fast and stable which is good for me. Is the size correct for my weight, height and ability? is this the right ski for me ?

A: The Brahma is a perfect ski for riding Back East. The waist width is very maneuverable when you need it to be when you are on firm groomers and in some fresh snow. An 88mm waist works very well up to about a foot of fresh, anything over that you may want to consider a wider ski. The rocker profile, flex pattern, and waist width makes it one of the best skis on the market for moguls. Based on your weight and ability you may find the 180cm a bit fatiguing or demanding, but will give you better flotation in the deeper snow.

Q: I'm 5'8", 160lbs, intermediate skier, who makes yearly trips out west. What's the best length in this ski for me? I tried 166s last year, which rode okay but did feel choppy at speed. However, it seems to be a large jump up to 173cm, and I don't want to get too long of a ski for when I need to turn more quickly in the bumps. Do you recommend jumping up? Thanks.

A: Based on your weight, ability, and where you want to take the ski the 166cm will be the optimal size for you.

Q: I'm 5'9, 180lbs. Fairly aggressive skier, enjoy the bumps a lot but want a ski that will handle a variety of terrain - from high speed groomers to powder to bowls. Ski Utah for a week and Tahoe few times a year. Considering these and the Volkl 100Eights. Any recommendations between those two skis or others I should consider would be greatly appreciated.

A: Both skis rip and work very well for aggressive skiers. The Brahma is a little more carvy and the 100Eight is much better in powder. Based on your weight and aggressiveness the 180 Brahma and the 177cm 100Eight would be the optimal sizes for you.

Q: Hi - I'm 5'9ish, 170 lbs. intermediate-advanced skier. 50/50 skiing between the west and east coast. Debating between the Brahma 88 and Salomon QST 92 - any advice there? Size - was looking at the Brahma 173, or would you recommend going up to the 180 size?
Asked : Jan 12, 2017
By : Gus, Canada
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: Both skis are very solid, the Brahma is a bit stiffer and more demanding than the QST 92. Based on your weight and ability the mid-170s size will be the optimal size for you.

Q: Hey I am a 6'2 240lb advanced skier. I spend the majority of my time on the piste skiing aggressively and fast but wanting to explore more off piste. Mainly ski in Europe and wondering if I should go for these, the Line Supernatural 86 or the Blizzard Latigo. Also which size of ski would you recommend?
Asked : Jan 11, 2017
By : geoff, Belfast, Ireland
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A: The Brahma or the Supernatural 86 would be the two skis I would recommend for you. The Latigo will be slightly (not noticeable for most skiers) quicker edge to edge, but will not have the off piste performance of the other skis. Between the Brahma and the SN 86, I would recommend the Brahma as it has more of the playful characteristics you'd find in a off piste ski, while the SN 86 is more of a wide carving ski. At your height and weight you are going to want to lean towards a ski in the 184-190cm range.
