Maybe the Blizzard Latigo Ski isn't as fat as most of its brothers in Blizzard's Freemountain Ti line, but it makes up for its relatively narrow width by being super quick through bumps and trees, powerfully edgy on groomers, and plenty fast enough to give strong intermediate skiers a perma-grin all over the mountain. It all starts with Blizzard's Flipcore, which, unlike traditional cores that are pressed in a cambered mold, presses the core into a mildly rockered shape from the very start, so the rocker profile exactly matches the shape of the ski. This gives the Latigo a snappy, lively feel, which is boosted by two layers of Titanal that stiffen things up and give the ski plenty of power and edge grip. Traditional camber underfoot lets you carve the Latigo like you're riding rails, while mild rocker in the tip and tail make it easier to initiate turns and ride over rough, choppy snow on the lightning-quick sintered graphite base. It's also built with a classic sandwich construction, which helps direct power to the edges and takes a beating without slowing down.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
