The 118-mm wide Bodacious is the widest ski Blizzard makes and flagship of its Free Mountain series of rockered fat skis. Blizzard's Full Rocker profile combines a flat section under the binding with rocker fore and aft. All Free Mountain skis are built with Blizzard's Flipcore construction method: The ski mold is built with rocker in it, and the wood core is flipped so that it fits the rockered mold (arched surface down; flat surface up). Blizzard says no extra pressure is needed tip and tail to bend the ski into a rockered shape, so there's no material-memory tendency to spring back to an unrockered shape, and pressure distribution is even along the ski's length. It's a metal-reinforced (two sheets), wood-core construction with vertical sidewalls, built for maximum stability and edge-grip. Each ski in the successful "bull" series is named for a different legendary bull on the professional rodeo circuit. All Blizzard skis are built in the company's Mittersill, Austria, factory headquarters, near Kitzbuhel and the Kitzsteinhorn.
