Best All-Mountain Ski

See all pictures

If you were previously familiar with any other Blizzard ski, chances are it was the Cochise. Though its several reconceptualizations, the Cochise has always been known for being a heavy hard-charger that can be ridden in any conditions. It’s the heart and soul of Blizzard’s freeride skis, and this most recent version was created with the intent of getting more people riding the Cochise, without compromising on its burly charging capabilities.

The Cochise is a serious ski, and we’re excited to see it being broadcasted to a wider audience than ever before. The Cochise is a demanding ski despite the efforts Blizzard has made to make it more accessible. That being said, it’s a ski that won’t hold you back, and will return every investment that you make into it.
