It would have been almost impossible to enhance the Bonafide's off-trail chops, so Blizzard focused on frontside performance, juicing a ski that's already widely praised as among the greatest all-terrain skis of all time. Blizzard widened the tip and tail without changing the waist width for a deeper sidecut and fiddled with the forebody so the Flipcore rocker could engage the turn earlier.

The result is a ski that's equally at home digging trenches through corduroy or crushing crud in the backcountry. Bob Gleason compared the new Bonafide to past versions: “The subtle lengthening of the sidecut in the ski's forebody helps it enter the turn earlier with stronger initiation. Overall, it plays like a well-crafted symphony at various speeds, terrain and snow conditions.”
