The M-Power is the highest-performing model in Blizzard's Magnum line, which is designed for all-mountain, multi-condition skiing. With an 85 waist and slight tip and tail rocker, it's built to excel in almost any condition you throw it into (deep powder being the exception). An oil piston and suspension arms should reduce vibration and prepare the ski to engage earlier in the new turn. The layup? Wood core, a new Spaceframe Titanal sheet with cutouts to reduce swingweight, carbon, full sidewall. Tip and tail rocker. Sold with binding.

It’s built like a race ski in some respects—wood core, metal laminates, vertical side walls. Blizzard’s new Power System—a carbon reinforcement bar connected to an oil-filled piston underfoot—adds tip and tail pressure at speed while quieting the ski between turns. Blizzard softens the flex and adds tip rocker for manageability and soft-snow versatility, but it’s still very much a go-fast ski: No. 2 in Stability at Speed, No. 1 in Hard-Snow Grip. It’s thrilling, but it expects you to know what you’re doing. Easterners will love the tenaciousness. “Give it the gas; it gives back,” said Malone.
