Technical info:
Blizzard Dakota has long rocker in the front and short rocker in the back ski. Long sidecut radius and no tail. Low camber, stiff in the back and normal front ski.

On snow:
Dakota turns well as long as you put a little extra pressure onto it. Furthermore, it´s predictable and safe and relatively stable at speed. Some of us thought it was a little tame, and that it´s only an average ski in this company. This ski can fit a great many, but first and foremost as a 50/50 slope and freeride ski. It lacks the finesse to really stand out.
