We are thrilled to present the results from the first annual SkiEssentials.com Ski Test. Over the course of three days at Stowe Mountain Resort our team of 38 skiers tested a total of 122 skis. Instead of focusing on numerical scores and which ski is the “best,” we tried to objectively describe the performance of each ski and whom it would be best for. You’ll find results broken down by ski category, gender, and brand including links to the testers who skied each ski. We hope the results from our test help guide you to your new skis!
Over the last few seasons, Blizzard has been making the Brahma in a variety of different ways. Originally featuring a wood core with two sheets of metal, Blizzard added carbon to the ski last season, reducing weight and increasing maneuverability. Additionally, Blizzard also released the Brahma SP - a limited edition version of the ski that features increased durability for the high-end retail market. At Skiessentials.com, we have a few of these skis in stock so we figured we'd share what we know about it in this product highlight!
