Alpine Touring, AT Skiing, has become increasingly popular over the last few seasons. For the 2012-2013 season, Blizzard responded with an all new ski for their Free Mountain line the Kabookie. The Kabookie was built for the AT guys that love to go up just as much as they love going down, doesn't sound like a difficult thing to create but it is, and Blizzard did it. The Kabookie isn't an absolute bear to hike up with, but it can still shred and feel stable on the way down, an Alpine Touring dream! The Kabookie is also a solid option for those that like how the Bonafide skis but once something that's lighter andmore forgiving, the Kabookie is built without metal and still rips!
A Full Sandwich Sidewall construction gives the Kabookie solid edge grip on hardpack snow, and increases the torsional stability of the ski.
ISO-Core, Full Wood with Bamboo - The full woodcore provides durability and stability, while the Bamboo adds liveliness and power.
Flip Core 3D - The woodcore of the ski is flipped over during the pressing process, giving the ski a naturally rockered shape. This eliminates any negative bending or breaking during the molding process. This gives the Blizzard Flip Core skis unparalleled stability and an unbelievably smooth ride.
This ski does not come with a binding. We recommend you use a binding that will accommodate your skiing needs (backcountry, touring, all-mountain, freestyle etc.). Be sure the brake width and release settings will work for your particular activity. Questions about what's best for you, contact an expert at TheSkiMonster.com.
