I am an athletic intermediate and have my eyes set on this ski primarily as my groomer ski. Is this versatile enough to deal with some late-day chop?
I am 6'0 200lbs. Will the 173cm be the correct length for me?
Question by: Ameya on Mar 10, 2021, 6:45 PM
HI Ameya!
For sure--especially given it's proclivity for groomers, it's a pretty versatile ski thanks to the taper shape and rocker profile--more taken from a freeride influence rather than a carver. I'd feel more comfortable with you on the 180, but if you prefer shorter turns, the 173 is not wrong. Have fun!

I have skied on Bramah’s for three years. Have the changed? My top layer is peeling off which makes me want to buy new. Is the 2022 going to be different?
I am 5’8” 185 Adanced skier who enjoys black diamonds as well as cruising blues and am learning to ski trees. What size ski and is the right ski for me?

HI Mark!
The Brahma 82 for 2022 gets the Tru Blend wood core that the Bonafide and Brahma 88 got last year. It also comes in different lengths, so the skis are more tailored per length for that potential skier. So yes, there are some changes, and they serve to refine the skis, but they're still quite high-performance. In that 82 mm width, also check out the Stockli Laser AR and the Volkl Deacon 80. Have fun!

Hi Marc, We have a great review on the differences in the 2022 Brahma compared to the older generation, here you go: https://www.skiessentials.com/Chairlift-Chat/2022-blizzard-brahma-88-ski-review/
As for sizing, either the 171 or 183 will work, the 171 will be easier to turn, more playful and better in trees, while the 183 will be heavier, longer turns, and more stable at high speeds. I would lean towards the 171. Hope this helps, SE

Coming off K2 Amp impact 168 and looking at the Blizzard Bramha 82. Was wondering about the 82 vs the Bramha 82 SP. I live on east coast mostly ski PA hard pack and sadly icy all the time. (Probably better off with ice skates). Want to get some thing slimmer and lighter as I've turned 50 and just don't have my 25 year old energy anymore. Dont care about speed just want to be able to turn better and try to find something that will help me ski better also. I'm 5'10 and 178 lbs and have no problem going short just to shave weight and carve easier. Any thoughts on which ones would make better sense and going with 166mm possibly. Or something that you think fits

Hi Joey-

The SP version has Duratec topsheets and tip protectors, but the same stability, dampness, and all mountain performance as the regular Brahma 82. Same internal construction on both skis, just a more durable top sheet on the SP. I would choose the one that you can get the best price on. Both ski are great front side carvers with excellent grip qualities for hard snow.
