Profile reviewer Steef

All-mountain for experts

The Blizzard Magnum 8.0 CA S is not a beginners ski. Heavy and powerful skiers might find it versatile, but for me it feels like a giant slalom ski. Very stiff, steady like a train on speed, very good grip for carving and a lot of acceleration out of corners. It is a demanding ski asking powerful input, and giving it all back to you. For an all-mountain ski I'll give it a 3 star rating. Would be a 4 star if it was positioned as a giant slalom ski.

Demanding

More GS than all-mountain to me

Rating: 3 stars

Giant all-mountain slalom

The ski is very good looking and is showing off a lot of potential. At work though I wasn't tickled to try off piste parts. Also rumbling on disordered parts I found not easy but hard work. Too stiff, too powerful for me to play around. It's perfect for giant slalom action on prepared slopes, but why would I buy an all-mountain ski  for that use?

Blizzard about the Magnum 8.0 CA S

"Floating turns every time, thanks to the new Spaceframe 3D and carbon construction. The Flip Core 3D Rocker design also helps you glide effortlessly over off-piste terrain. The perfect combination of versatility and performance makes this ski the ideal partner in all situations.", according to Blizzard. I can not find myself in this description. Not effortless in all situations, but demanding instead. Not all-mountain, but a good giant slalom partner for me.

Dimensions

Length (cm): 158, 165, 172, 179
Sidecut @172cm (mm): 122-80-107
Radius @172cm (m): 17

I found the ski a bit comparable to the Fisher RC4 Worldcup RC Pro which is a true giant slalom monster. For more easy all mountain use you can look for the Head REV 85 Pro or for more off piste use the Armada TST.
