Nordica Hell & Back (2013)

Nordica Hell & Back (2013)
Gold Medal Gear
Tester's Review

Judging by the top four skis in the category, 98 mm is the ideal waist for the Mixed Snow West skier. But only the Hell & Back is metal-free. So no surprise it's No. 1 in Quickness. Nordica keeps it relatively light on purpose: The returning Hell & Back is part of an all-glass collection of all-mountain skis designed for occasional touring. (You can buy precut skins for $299.) Testers didn't miss the Titanal; there's plenty of edge grip and stability and certainly no lack of power. "Comfy, fluid, obedient, yet ready to get after it."

PRICE (MSRP): $899.00
