Blister Gear Review goes Supernatural


Blister Gear Goes In Deep with the Supernatural


This season, we released the All-New and award winning Supernatural series – a hard charging freeride ski built and expanded from the much loved Prophet.

We could go on-and-on about our new favorite all-mountain charger but don’t take our word on it; take theirs!  > Blister Gear Review provides one of our favorite in-depth reviews!

“The ski provides a VERY fun, interesting mix of playful / poppy and directional “chargy” skiing. I was even willing to spin several 3’s on the 108.” – Will Brown

“The Supernatural 108 feels quicker and does not ski as heavy” – Jonathan Ellsworth

“Tipping the skis on edge, the 108 wil hook up and begin to pull across the fall line more quickly, and with more energy” – Will Brown

Blister Gear Review “Best Of” Awards



We’re honored to be included in this year’s Blister Gear Reviews “Best Of” Awards! Three of our 2015 skis are featured – the Sir Francis Bacon, the Pandora & the Magnum Opus.

For those of you who might not be entirely familiar with Blister Gear Review, the collection of reviewers pride themselves on honest to goodness with their reviews – “the typical BLISTER review is around 1500 words. We will give you our honest opinion, and we will back it up with detailed analysis” boasts the site.

Read what they had to say!

The Best Playful All-Mountain Ski – The Sir Francis Bacon


“For those who like the looser, more forgiving feel of a tail rockered ski, or who want a light and playful ski to trick around the mountain.

Cliff notes version of Jason Hutchins’ reviews of the 184cm and 190cm Bacon: Of all the skis I’ve ridden, I’d call the Bacon the most versatile one-ski quiver option currently available for the playfully-minded, all-mountain skier.”

The Best Women’s Versatile Pow Ski –  The Pandora

“The Pandora is a versatile, every day ski for softer snow conditions. For a 110mm underfoot ski, the Pandora still carves nicely on piste, but is an absolute blast in fresh snow, soft chop, and more playful, open terrain.”

The Best Playful Pow Skis – The Magnum Opus

“If you’re looking for a powder ski to take out on deep days to search for natural features to spin, flip, and drag, I can’t think of a better ski for the job than the Line Magnum Opus.”


We’re a big fan of their A/B reviews too! – See their recent of the Supernatural 108.

Tested / Line Influence 115 Review

The Line Influence 115 has been our go-to do everything stick for the past few seasons. Looking for a neutral, easy to ski big mountain stick for all conditions out west? This should be atop your short list…

Influence 115 Line

Long Term Review: Line Influence 115 192

Skier: Jeff Brines
Height: 6’2”
Weight:190lbs
Place: Jackson
Binding: FKS 14
Boot: Krypton Pro
Ski Weight: ~2450 grams (192)
Radius: 22.6M @ 186M
Rocker: Rocker/Camber/Rocker (Height in mm -11 +4 -9)
Construction: Capwall

Summary: The Line Influence 192 impressed us a few years back with its versatility and overall neutrality. It isn’t the stiffest, lightest or biggest stick out there but its strength lies in its ability to strike a balance of “do everything” at an attractive price point. If you are a skier living out west, the Andrew Whiteford (and other line athletes) “pro” model should be on a short list of skis that can do it all.

Who is it for: This is a great one-ski quiver or go-to inbounds ski for the stronger skier living somewhere it snows more than 400” a year. The Influence 115 is especially good for those who appreciate a more modern mount point and looking for something that strikes a balance between “playful” and “charger”. If you like a more traditional (rearward) mount point, looking for the lightest ski in the 110-120mm category or want as much float as possible, look elsewhere.

Side note two of the best Jackson Hole skiers, Max Hammer and Andrew Whiteford had a fair amount of input in this ski. If you like how they ski and your mountain parallels that of JHMR, consider this to be near the top of your list.

All East – All The Time

Testers loved the Prophet Flite and Sick Day 95 in the east coast. Read what they had to say in the November issue of SNOWEAST Magazine.

Prophet Flite
“Out of all three of the Prophet series I tested the Flite was a standout in excitement. A much lighter version of the 90 it’s loaded with snappy energy that I didn’t want to click out. A feather on steroids.” Carol Beale

Sick Day 95
“Phenomenal right up with the Prophet that was a top pick last year. A directional freeride ski with a pin tail design means an early rise tip and tail with a thinner tail. Amazing for pivot turns and great for carving going off piste into fresh snow. Perfect for fun in the trees and ripping up the hard pack.” Joshua Bennett

Sidecountry Fun with Backpacker Magazine and Sick Day 95

The truth about backcountry skiing: Rare is the day when the weather, snow conditions, and terrain all align to make you a superhero. Sometimes, you need a ski for the snow you get, not the snow you want. Enter the Sick Day, which we pushed hard in conditions ranging from refrozen slop to sunbaked mank to glorious shin-deep powder. Our testers enjoyed its stability, edge hold, and ability to keep them balanced no matter what the conditions. This board can feather through the easy stuff (powder/packed powder), but still charge when turning isn’t an option. Pick the Sick Day if you love short, off-piste hikes out of the parking lot or bowls with cliff-hucking options. “This is the ski for days when inch-thick crust has encased your beloved powder,” says a tester who guides cat skiers in Colorado. “Because even in crap snow it gives you power and confidence.” Another tester called it “especially well-balanced,” meaning that he always felt “centered, fore, aft, and laterally,” even when ripping through bumps and airing off backcountry pillows. We liked how powerful and steadfast it felt, a result of a soft tip that floats over crud, and a stiff tail that aids in popping skiers from turn to turn.Backpacker Magazine
