Sold Blizzard Latigo 170

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
On the off chance that people other than just me are thinking about next season already...I'm selling my Blizzard Latigo 170s. Great 'all mountain'/piste skis, with pop in the turn and enough rocker (and 78mm width) to keep a smile on your face in fresh snow or going of the sides. They were bought in Jan last year and have seen just over four weeks of snow. They come with Salomon SH10 bindings, mounted to 314 BSL originally (but since tweaked for my new boots at 306 BSL, so that is current setting (if that makes sense)).

Fall-Line magazine gave it a gold award for the 2015 season and just google reviews for a sense of what fun these are (skis.com among others). But I can hear the question - if they are so good, why am I selling? Dumb as it may sound, I got hold of a pair in 177 for a decent price and have therefore traded up in length...

I'd rather not post them. But travel between High Wycombe and Bournemouth each week... and I'm happy to talk other possibilities.

Shout with any questions, happy to PM photos. And asking price is £180, which is what the last pair went for on here. Thanks for listening, M

Damn, I want these very much but am out of the UK Sad
(not sure what my BSL is, probably over 320; I don't have boots!!)

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Shipping to Lisbon is £42/43 with TNT or UPS via Interparcel.com.

A Z10 heel mounted to 314mm will lengthen to 324/5mm without needing a remount although you'd about 5mm behind the line.

Thank you so much @spyderjon. I don't know BSL but I do know I'm 28 Mondo, at least on all the hire boots I've tried (43-44 shoe size) - does that still keep me in the picture?

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Spent the day on my Latigos at Hemel doing (attempting) carved turns, I love these skis!

A 43-44 euro shouldn't be more than 27 mondo.

Buying a pair of high quality piste skis would be waste if you're gonna ski 'em in hire boots that a too big.

I presume that you're planning on buying boots as well? If so, then the exsiting binding mount on these Latigo's will be perfect.

Yep I'm 317mm BSL in a 27.0 and usually wear 45 in Euro street shoes for comfort.

@mistral, if you don't mind me asking, where did you get the Latigo 177s at a reasonable price from? I'd be very keen on a pair of those - especially if they're available flat (so they can be QK'd)...

@jma, no I don't mind at all. Snowfit. Then the most excellent @spyderjon fitted some smart new Vist bindings, making me a very happy boy. Roll on January...

Sorry @skiinghunter, these skis are now sold. Trying to figure out how to change the title to reflect that.

@mistral, click on the edit button in the column to the right of your original post. You can then edit either the post, the title or both.

Thanks @spyderjon, fixed it (I had managed it in the past but those skills deserted me)
