Technical info:
Blizzard Sheeva is a sandwich construction reinforced with aluminum. The specific weight is fairly low, despite the metal. The sidecut is a little unusual, with a very long sidecut radius in the front, but considerably more sidecut from the waist and back. Soft front ski. Balanced rocker in the front and back ski.

On snow:
Many test riders experienced it as a little unstable at high speed. This might be due to the abrupt sidecut in the back ski. The test team is divided about how it performs in the turns. This is understandable, considering that the sidecut radius goes from 30 to 17. Those who got comfortable on this ski experienced it as easy to turn. Others felt it did not respond. Summed up, Sheeva is a good allrounder that perhaps doesn´t suit everyone. Give it a try and see what you think.
