My favorite type of ski currently is the true all mnt twin. Most skis I like are around 100mm underfoot with some tip and tail rocker. The Peacemaker at 104mm and featuring Blizzards Flip core ticks those boxes and having been very impressed by the Gunsmoke I was excited to see what the Peacemaker could do.
One thing I want to touch on is something I don't usually mention, graphics. The current version of this ski in my opinion looks pretty bad. I know its just personal opinion but I do wonder if the graphics have held back the uptake of the brand some what. The new versions, although quite Rossi "7" in style do look good I think. You may notice one of the cows eyes is smaller then the other and according to the French designer that is because "he is taking a shit".
Anyway back to the skis. I got the rep to move the bindings forward so I was around +2cm on the scale and straightaway I found I liked the way the tails handled much better. The Peacemaker is slightly softer then the Gunsmoke and I was finding it much more playful. Its certainly not a soft ski but has a decent flex in the tip and tail if you are a stronger rider.
The edge hold was just as consistent as the Gunsmoke. There is one steep corner on the Lower Dave Murry DH and I threw the skis into it so hard I fully expected to fully blow out the other side, but no the edge hooked up and I flew round.
In the deeper snow I was finding I could maintain a fairly forward stance and could still drive the tips. On the various hits on my test run the skis got air borne with no effort and the fairly light weight made moving the skis around no problem.
I really enjoyed the Peacemaker and its skis like this that really make me enjoy testing. Blizzard were not that high on my list in terms of testing but in the peacemaker I have found a really fun All Mnt twin that can truly rip. I really hope to get back on these skis as I want to know how they handle the park and if they could be an option for my new All Mnt skis.
