I was just putting away my skis for the summer - the skis I bought from David B. in January - the (2014-15) Blizzard Brahma. I cannot say enough good things about this ski, I am glad David helped me to decide to buy it. I've skied in PA, NY, VT, CO an UT on these skis...they performed consistently well in all areas and all conditions. It's a really versatile ski. This ski has made me a better skier. I LOVE THIS SKI!
