    Tried out the Blizzard Latigo at Sunapee on 12/10. Wanted to try the Brahmas but they were out with someone else at the time. Sunapee had gotten maybe 3 or 4 inches of snow the night before and so the sides of the trails had soft snow beginning to bump up and the middle of the trails were scraped off.

    The ski didn't have a ton of float, obvious at 78 m underfoot, but it had a lot of pop and nimbleness in the ungroomed. It felt right at home in a few inch storm. It was also really quick edge to edge and held onto the hardpack quite nicely, similar to the Brahma, but didn't quite pop out of turns like a stiffer ski would. I did not want to drive it too hard though, as it felt a tad unstable at higher speeds.

    I would use this ski for bumps, trees, icy or a few inches of powder and have a lot of fun with it. A rising intermediate who struggles to control the Brahma could enjoy this ski on groomed trails too and venture into the ungroomed with it too.

    The Latigo is its own ski, but I couldn't help but compare it to the Brahma while skiing it. I would say this ski is about 80% of what the Brahma is, but a little softer but faster edge to edge.
