Technical info:
The largest freeride model from Blizzard is equipped with so-called Flipcore technology. Blizzard claim to have turned the core upside down to get reverse camber all the way. Despite this, it is yet another Blizzard model without full rocker. The skis are flat at the waist and have long sections of low rocker. They are heavy, with long sidecut and turning radiuses. Tips and tails are stiff.

On snow:
If playfulness is what you crave, the Bodacious should not be at the top of your wish list. It gets too fierce to allow you to simply and easily to be able to sneak your way through narrow passages or find at any pranks out a cornice. On the contrary, this is a rock solid charging ski for skiing fast. It is made for big drops and is a real bump annihilator. Suits the ambitious,speed loving freerider with good technique and a desire to tear <i>straight</i> down the mountain side.
