What Blizzard says about the Anomaly 94

Blizzard is proud to introduce a brand-new collection of all-mountain skis crafted for skiers who defy the ordinary, ANOMALY. Recognizing the ambiguity of the ‘all-mountain’ category and the evolving needs of skiers who want a ski that marries downhill performance with multi-terrain versatility, ANOMALY provides the foundation for skiers to approach the mountain with their own unique brand of style, speed, control, and face-melting fun.

The engineering goal of ANOMALY was to create a collection that honors Blizzard’s heritage of horsepower but wouldn’t bully skiers off the mountain. After all, a race car is only as good as its brakes, and confidence is key.

Drawing on the success of Fluxform Technology in the Rustler freeride collection, Blizzard has tailored an all-new Fluxform to meet the specific needs of all-mountain skiing. Two full sheets of Titanal are broken into three layers, allowing for the top layers to shear slightly within the ski. This reduces torsional rigidity so you can come in and out of turns with ease, all while maintaining a super stable, damp feeling from tip to tail. The result is a ski that allows you to step on it, but feel confident you’ll be able to shut it down when you need to.

Available in 102, 94, 88, and 84 waist widths, ANOMALY brings to the table an increased and more progressive rocker profile in the tip and tail, for ease of turn initiation and improved versatility in all conditions. With a slightly shorter on-snow contact length but increased camber height, Anomaly provides improved power and stability at speed and generates more energy out of turns without sacrificing on versatility or intuitiveness.

A new metal layup and rocker profile brought the need to refine the Trueblend woodcore at the heart of the ski. Stringers of dense Beech wood are concentrated underfoot to provide plenty of power and stability where you need it, yet taper towards the tip and tail among softer Poplar wood. The result is a woodcore that is specifically designed to be strongest underfoot and get progressively softer towards the ends of the ski to perfectly match the rocker profile and Fluxform metal layup for a smooth, balanced flex.

The concept of ‘Specifically Designed’ is Blizzard’s North Star, and the Trueblend wood cores are the epitome. Because the layout of the stringers is specific to each size, the cores cannot simply be cut to length, but rather are designed specifically for every size of every model. Every ski has its own specific core, fine-tuned to optimize the performance of that one ski for that one skier.

  1. So, does the absence of significant tail rocker mean these are more directional and less “loose” than the Rustlers? Are the replacing the Brahma’s etc?

  2. I’ll be curious to see if the titanal layering changes are noticeable but I’m bummed they gave the Brahma some rocker. Definitely didn’t need it in the 88 width.

  3. Be interesting in the 88 size comparing to the Brahma.
    The replacement ski is supposedly easier, more responsive and still as strong vs their own that was pretty much category defining originally, with good tip initiation due to not really that much rocker….
    Similar numbers though, just looks like they moved centre backwards a bit to cover the extra rocker.

  4. “Two full sheets of Titanal are broken into three layers, allowing for the top layers to shear slightly within the ski. This reduces torsional rigidity ” Sheets into layers? What does that mean? How do you get 3 layers from 2 sheets?

  5. How does the Anomaly compare to the first generation Bonafide? Is it more forgiving? I’ve skied Bonafide’s since they were first introduced but now that I’m 74, they seem too demanding. I skied the latest version last season at Alta/Snowbird and didn’t like them either. I’m looking for a relaxed Bonafide. Would the Anomaly fit that description? FYI, I’m an eastern skier who skis 70 to 80 days a season and age is not getting in the way of that.

    • I’m a new skier, 20 ish days so far. I demod the 88s, and really liked them. They were a heavier than I expected but overall felt great for someone who is newer to the sport. Maybe that will help.

  6. See Robert Veit’s question from 3/7/24
    I am in the same situation-lifelong skier from the east, now in Utah, and have loved the Bonafide as a truly all-mountain ski. Especially love its drive through crud. I am 70 and slowing down a bit, so looking for that “relaxed Bonafide” Is the Anomaly 94 that ski? and which length? My Bonafides (2020 model) are 180cm. I’m 5’8/160 lbs/still like to get aggresive at times but am easing back

  7. Would the102 compare with the Cochise.? I have been skiing the 108’s for years and can’t imagine skiing anything else. I’m bummed they discontinued the Cochise. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it!
