For 2020, we've identified a trend amongst ski manufacturers of offering narrower versions of some of their most popular freeride skis. We've already covered the all new 2020 Nordica Enforcer 88, which is the narrowest in their lineup, and this week we've decided to take on another review of a narrower-than-ever freeride ski: the 2020 Blizzard Brahma 82. While many of you may be feeling skeptical about the "narrowization" of freeride skis, the fact of the matter is that the 2020 Brahma 82 actually perfectly meets the needs of a certain type of skier. To find out more, check out our complete ski review of this exciting new ski!

This week, ski news feels a bit different as things on the World Cup Circuit are starting to settle down for the season, and we find ourselves discussing more weather related news than we have in years. That said, we've got a good one. On the ski racing front, we'll tell you about two young U.S. ski racers who just had a huge week. Plus, we'll share some wild weather, from a resort in Idaho that received too much snow to open, to crushing winds in Maine and New Hampshire. Speaking of which, we'll also share a story we caught this week that highlights the friction between ski areas and sensational weather reporters. Find out about these topics and more, in this week's edition of Top Five Fridays!
