Blizzard's Free Mountain series takes in a new family member this season with the versatile, 114 mm-waisted Gunsmoke. As with the other skis in the series, the Gunsmoke features Flipcore 3D technology, which flips the woodcore upside down during manufacturing, adding rocker without bending it into the twin tips. The performance-oriented construction includes full sandwich compound sidewalls designed to add constant edge pressure over the length of the ski, and a full wood core with two weight-reducing layers of fiberglass. "It's very playful and inspiring," said Beidleman. "A great choice for a deep snow ski that performs admirably in All-Mountain conditions," said Maybon.
