Most companies are making great skis these days. But every so often our testers click into something that just sings. Enter La Niña, Nordica’s all-new women’s powder ski. On first impression, testers thought the 185-cm test length looked like a monster. Once underfoot, though, it felt like an extension of their bodies as it smoothly absorbed crud, snapped through tight trees, and railed on hardpack. Aggressive rocker at tip and tail and camber underfoot are the magic combination, giving a big ski intended for serious skiers a huge measure of forgiveness and fun.
