Leave tradition to the old fogies.

Fatty powder skis are a dime a dozen these days, and it seems like they're all pretty much slightly modified versions of the same thing—big rocker, soft tips, and a loose, surfy feel. Blizzard's down with the trend, but it's also ready to throw down some changes with the Spur Ski.

Don't get it twisted: riding loose, surfy skis can be more fun than swimming in a kiddie pool full of pulled pork, but they quickly get out-muscled when the snow is anything but pristine. The Spur's a little different, though—it still features a pow-crushing 124mm waist and fully rockered tips and tails to surf, float, and pivot through waist-deep creamy goodness, but it has a unique asymmetrical sidecut and tapered tips and tails that make it easy to vary your turn shapes at speed and provide a ridiculously smooth and forgiving ride. With some help from the burly sidewalls, the Spur bites into turns like a beast when you get up on edge, so you can rail through pockets of wind-affected and handle groomers like a champ on the way back to the lift.

Not only are the Spur's extremities tapered for a smooth, versatile ride, but they're also made of light and stiff carbon fiber, which actually increases the ski's stability while reducing swing weight and vibration, making the Spur a ridiculously bomber platform when you're mobbing through day-old leftovers or wind-hammered crud. Blizzard also incorporated its unique Flipcore technology, which inverts the poplar, bamboo, and ISO core during the pressing process, matching the core profile to the rocker shape for a ride that's incredibly smooth and a flex that's ridiculously consistent, no matter how hard you're pushing the ski. There's no doubt about it, the Spur is blazing its own trail to big-mountain domination.

Recommended Sizing Guide

Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preferred style of skiing. For example, an expert skier in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
