Blizzard Dakota

The Dakota returns for 2013/2014, with a shorter length offering (163 centimeters) and the same game-on construction. “This ski favors strong, aggressive women,” Minneci said. “It feels like a high-performing, wide Frontside ski.” Testers awarded the Dakota highest score for stability, lowest for playfulness. As with the other skis in the women’s Free Mountain series, the 108 millimeter-waisted Dakota features Flipcore 3D technology, which flips the wood core upside down, adding rocker without bending it into the twin tips. The construction includes full sandwich compound sidewalls and a poplar and bamboo wood core. Weatherbee said it’s not as forgiving in powder as other skis, but “it’s easy to turn in bumps and on the groomers.”
