With a complete re design for 2016, the Blizzard Bodacious Skis Griffon Demo Ski Bindings turn a page from the Arne Backstrom era, but Arne would love this ski. The new Bodacious still crushes in any big mountain conditions, but feels a little more nimble and alive without the two sheets of Titanal. This year's skis are lighter at the tips and tails, with carbon fiber integrated into the Flip Core build. The turn radius has also dropped to 27 meters in a 185 last year's ski was 32 meters. Slightly better performance in tight spots doesn't change the fact that the Bodacious is meant to charge hard high speed precision arcs at Mach Looney will still bring a smile of delight to your face. If you loved the old Bodacious like we did, be prepared for a different, but no less amazing experience.
