    Looking to buy my first set of skis

    I live in New England and just picked up skiing this year. I’ve picked it up pretty quickly I think. After only a handful of times out on the slope I am going down blacks and double blacks and hitting some glade trails. One of my buddies let me borrow an old pair of K2 Aftershocks. They seem...

    What to Ski in 2020

    Former EpicSki member and first post here. I’ve skied on and off since 1968, but regularly (25-40) days a year for the past 15 years. I’m 71 years old. I ski my local mountain in Idaho and 4-5 days a year at Snowbird/Alta. I’m an advanced skier but reluctant to call myself an “expert” although...

    Ski blowout- Stockli and Blizzard

    Hey everyone, Sorry I haven't been posting: I have barely been skiing. Too much going on in my life right now! I hope to take advantage of spring conditions once things settle down: I was supposed to ski in Tahoe last week, but Bend got buried and I couldn't make it out of town. Ah well, life...

    Marker WC Plate on Brahma?

    I just bought the 2018 Blizzard Brahma 187cm w/o bindings or a plate (just clean skis). I'm 27 yo, aprox. 105kgs, and I'm quite an aggressive skier who loves clean, long GS turns. I'll be using the skis on piste only, during bad conditions days (soft/chopped/unmodified/destroyed snow on piste)...

    Cage Match Comparison 2019 Blizzard Brahma vs2019 Rossignol Experience 88 Ti

    In all its wisdom, Blizzard played it safe when redesigning the Brahma. It had a good thing going and decided to tweak things rather than start over. So, the new Brahma got a slightly more rounded shovel, a slightly more aggressive sidecut, and a slightly more balanced flex compared to the model...

    Ideal Deer Valley ski

    I will be spending my first year as a Deer Valley pashokder this year and am looking for a ski to both fill out the narrower end of my quiver and for daily use at DV. My existing quiver is composed of an Enforcer 93 (I love this ski) and Backland 108. Knowing the conditions at DV I’d like this...

    2019 vs. 2018 skis

    Up to now I've rented skis, which at least has meant the opportunity to try a few things out. I'm now thinking of buying. I've gravitated to two particular skis, which seem to work alright for me: Blizzard Brahma (88) and Volkl RTM 84. Anyway, both skis are supposedly unchanged from 2018...

    All-mountain skis recommendations for a tall advanced woman

    Hi All, I am thinking of getting new all-mountain skis for the next season and wanted to ask for the advice on which skis may work well for me. About me: I'm tall and heavy at 6'1", weigh around 190 pounds. I am an advanced female skier who took many lessons and now have very good ski...

    Cage Match Comparison When You Just Cannot Afford a Premium Ski

    I am done with super fats unless I am cat skiing.

    I am done with Super Fats unless I am cat skiing For several years I have skied on ultra wide skis in deep powder when out west. First the Volkl Shiro and then the Rossi Super 7. I have enjoyed both skis in deep powder, as one would expect ; both skis, at one time or another, were Ski...

    Skis for my boyfriend (who doesn't know what he wants)

    My boyfriend wants/needs new skis. He's looking for a one ski quiver for Tahoe. Right now he's skiing on 5 year old K2 Aftershocks, with an 86 mm waist. They were demo skis when he bought them. They are heavy, and I think he would like lighter skis. A little wider would probably be good, too...

    FS: Blizzard Brahma "Black Edition" 180cm--SOLD

    This is one that you do not see often. This was the special "Employee Purchase" ski from last year. It does have the Carbon inserts. Obviously they have been skied but are in pretty darn good condition, I would say 8.5/10. They are currently drilled for Pivot at 306BSL. I can mount them up...

    What to expect from my Atomic Vantage 90 CTI

    Went for a one ski quiver this year, and had my eyes set on the Blizzard Brahma, but got a good deal on the Vantage 90 CTI, and since the reviews have been really good on this ski, and went for it since the dealer believed the ski would be more "fun" than the Brahma. Ended up getting the 184cm...

    Cage Match Comparison SkiEssentials Blizzard Brahma SP vs Nordica NRGy 85 R

    Longtime sponsor @SkiEssentials is having a sale on two under-the-radar skis, the Blizzard Brahma SP and Nordica NRGy 85 R. These skis will prove difficult to research, because they are not “in line” skis, which means they are not in the catalogs, in regular product mixes, or on a ski shop's...

    Cage Match Comparison 2018 Blizzard Brahma and Brahma CA vs 2018 Nordica Navigator 90 and 85

    In trying to outmaneuver Blizzard, Nordica has been sneaky smart, and to an extent it is working. Nordica caught its cousin a bit flatfooted when putting the Enforcer 100 up against the Bonafide. When the Enforcer 93 came out, Blizzard’s Brahma and Regulator were left to rely on their reputation...

    New ski help Enforcer 93 vs Brahma vs Vantage 90CTI

    I'm looking to get a new set for this upcoming season. I've skied Atomics most of my adult life and like the way they hold on the East coast snow/ice, but the Smoke Ti(s) are getting long in the tooth and I thought I'd upgrade. So, reading all kinds of reviews and talking with more...

    Anyone Tried the 2018 Blizzard Brahmas Yet?

    Hi! So, I have been skiing on some older Kästles, old Volkl Racing Skis, and some also old Head Racing skis. While I am pretty happy with my setup, at the end of this 2016-2017 started to demo a lot of skis with the intentions to buy a pair and, needless to say I had some great times with some...
