Technical info:
Cochise is the heaviest model in the test with a powerful aluminum sandwich. Low camber and long, low rocker in both ends. The sidecut is more abrupt towards the tips than in the waist, but Blizzard sticks to the design formula of balancing the front and back ski . Stiffness is equally distributed, albeit a little softer in the front.

On snow:
This is a ski that encourages high speed. It preforms very well on the edge and feels dead solid. Moreover, it is quite smooth to maneuver in the turns, and it feels pretty stable. The only minus is that the heavy tip flutters when you go straight forward on hard surfaces. Not that playful, but among the best skis for high speed both on and off the piste.
