The Blizzard Bushwacker is the perfect ski for the guy who is looking for a ski that will be stable on the hard pack making short to medium radius turns, and will from time to time venture off the trail when the snow is perfect. At 88 mm in the waist the Bushwacker is most at home ripping up the groomers, but can handle light powder, and crud without throwing a shoe. The Blizzard Flipcore 3D rocker is engineered from the ground up you get a very lively, and stable ski. Rocker in the tip will initiate a turn quicker, easier, and help you absorb the negative vibrations that are caused by crud. Rocker in the tail will make the exits of your turns as smooth as butter. Slight camber underfoot will give you control and power when you are locked into your turns. Sidewalls and a full wood core will give you plenty of torsional strength, while a layer of bamboo will add some snap to your step. If you want a ski that will be quick edge to edge, stable on long turns, and be able to handle some light powder, the Blizzard Bushwacker is one ski you dont want to beat around the bush for.
This is Trey here with Blizzard's Bushwacker. 5 out of 5 stars for me on this ski. I've skied it before and it didn't blow me away like it did this time, I really really love this ski. It really made me feel like I was skiing like a hero, which says a lot. It's very very stable, very predictable, but yet playful at the same time. I could throw it around, it would hold an edge, you could take it in the bumps, ski anywhere really on the mountain except for maybe real cruddy, deep stuff. So, this ski is awesome, it's fun, it holds and it makes you feel like a hero.
Hi, I'm Thom. I'm here with the Blizzard Bushwhacker. This guy is 5 out of 5 star ski. Super quick edge-to-edge but there's no metal in it so it's got a little bit more of a snappy, playful feel. Unlike the Brahma which is its bitter brother that needs a heavier skier, this is going to respond to somebody that's maybe a little less aggressive, a little less advanced, as well as an expert level skier that's just looking for that more lively type ski. Very energetic. Great edge hold. Went through the turn both long and short radius are great on it. Just a really fun, well-rounded choice.
Hi, I'm Kyle. Just got off the (Blizzard) Bushwacker. I give this ski a 5 out of 5. I really liked to go on fast and high speeds with it. It held an edge really well, plus it was really easy to turn. If you like to go fast, I'm sure on cruddier snow and stuff like that, you'll just be able to plow through it. It's a really easy ski to ski. So, I give this a 5 out of 5.
Hi, I'm Steve and I just got off the Blizzard Bushwacker. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars, I love this ski. It's a little narrower in the waist than I usually like, it's a 90 I believe waisted, 88 waisted, but it was very stable. I would have no problem bringing this ski into the trees, into the moguls. It was a lot of kick to it, it actually surprised me, almost threw me off edge the first time, I wasn't prepared for how much rebound the ski had. I give it 5 stars because it was just a great ski.
Hey, it's Hunter here with the Blizzard Bushwhacker. This is another 5 out of 5 star ski for me from Blizzard. Some may call this the Brahma's little brother but that would be a mistake. While this ski doesn't quite have the tenacious edge hold, still really nimble and light underfoot. For someone who possible came from a race background and wants a hard snow ski that's not really that punishing and has a little bit of forgiveness to it but still really high performance, you can't go wrong. Awesome choice from Blizzard.
I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Blizzard Bushwacker. I give this ski 5 out of 5. 88 at the waist, I consider that mostly an on piste ski for the bumps, it skied the bumps really well, I was able to take it through a couple bump lines today. Really quick and snappy at short, tight turns, reasonably stable at long turns, so if you're a strong, athletic skier looking for an easy ride or something that you can primarily ski on piste, the Bushwacker would be a good ski for you.
Steve's opinion of the blizzard bushwacker was so different than last year. Is there a difference in the specs that account for it or was the conditions very different? I didn't know if blizzard made any changes in the ski from 2013 to 14 or just changed the graphics.
A: Aside from the graphics the only difference between the 2013 and 2014 Blizzard Bushwacker will be the Inbounds Groomer Killer technology, which will make the newer Bushwackers a bit stiffer. This will make them carve better overall. Besides this they will ski identically to the older model.

Q: Does the 2014 bushwacker bring any changes other than new graphics?
