    Blizzard Spur

    One size available.

    189cm
    146/125/134mm side cut
    28mm Radius

    - Minimal camber underfoot, long, graduated rocker in the tip, Fairly flat tail with slight tail rocker.

    - No Metal, but lots o' Wood and plenty of Carbon.

    - Mounted at 0 (suggested)

    First off everyone wants cool shit. Let's face it, we all like it when people stare at our exotic skis and ask "what are those?"... While covered in snow most of the day I have never been asked more about a ski by random folks in the lift line than on these. They look fantastic!!!
    My Iphone pic above does no justice to the radness of these graphics. Anything that helps you look rad on the mountain is obviously awesome. So they pass the first and most important test with flying colors.

    As for the actual skiing.... Wow! Holy Shit!! I like them!!!

    I was told to think of the Spur as a Bodacious 2.0. I'm gonna up that to Bodacious 5.7...

    Favorite ski in this category has always been the 4frnt Renegade in a 196. I will always hold onto and cherish my two pair but the the first day on the Spur was an Ah-Ha moment for me.

    I'll have to reserve final judgement until some deep pow days on these things, but I can say with assurance the Spur is far superior on groomers and weird "transitional" snow.

    More to come...

    They just look white. Why the fuck to manufacturers keep making white powder skis?
    No longer stuck.

    Because consumers have spoken and the majority of them would prefer to have slightly less snow stick to their topsheets on bluebird days than a ski that is more easily found in soft snow.

    Because they're skiers themselves, and not e-skiers who pretend at expertise with 10k posts on TGR where they ask stupid questions or try to be funny but fail at that too.

    Maybe if you ask Blizzard's NRockies rep nicely -- from your shop owner's spot, or nationally recognized expert's spot, that should be easy to do -- they'll change the sheet to something that appeals to Westchester County transplants who bitch about the lack of expensive restaurants and good bagel shops.

    'Zactly. Won't buy a dark color ski ever again, dragging around ten pounds of topsheet snow sucks. I now have two pair of white skis, definitely the way to go, at least in warm Cali.

    Here are some pics of the Spur and Renegade side by side with boot center matched up evenly. Again Spur is a 189cm and Renegade is a 196cm, both mounted at manufacturers recommended boot center. Interesting how, either the Spur has a very long tip (that's what she said) or the Renegade has a very long tail, depending on how you want to look at it.

    Crank your DIN, get better technique, buy a SkiFinder and at last resort use powder cords along with body armour and you may not need eye blinding neon graphics to find your skis after your surprisingly frequent blow ups... Just kidding maybe your really good.

    Not my place but yes, I believe so, along with a switch that can divert the air completely...

    no. I remember you pretending to be a badass online, but not being one in meatspace.

    Yeah, it was right where I said you know where I live, so come have a beer with me or stfu.

    Lol, Brian. I'm decent. I don't lose my skis but I'd. like to thing that just in case, a bright dayglow ski is best.
    No longer stuck.

    if stuck and crusty are done flirting.... can we get a comparison of the spur to rens? i have been a ren lover for 3 seasons now, will prolly buy a backup pair, and gotta say the spur is looking titties! first ski with that shape and rocker profile i've seen in a while that turns my head.

    edit: specifically interdasted if the spur has the same magic chargey/ stable while still redarted nimble/playful. also bonus if it handles the groomed and choo better than the ren...
    one step forward, no step backward

    That thing has a bathroom vent fan mounted on top. You can make one for about $30-40 in about an hour if you have any carpentry skills and tools..
