The Blizzard Magnum 8.5 received near-perfect scores for carving and stability. "It tears trenches into the snow and stays glued to the slopes like it's on rails," said Ertl. "It's stable at all speeds and turn shapes and holds an edge with confidence," added Mahon. The power and edge hold comes from Blizzard's Spaceframe 3D technology, which removes small strategically-placed pieces of the titanium layer to reduce swing weight while maintaining torsional strength. A full wood core and sandwich sidewall construction add carving performance, while maneuverability comes from Flipcore, where slight rocker in the tip and tail are created in the mold, instead of bending reverse camber into the ski.
