Nordica Soul Rider (2013)
Here's another Value ski that embarrasses a lot of high-end models. The Soul Rider brought the fattest waist to the category, but it sprinted through Snowbird's chalky bumps with zest and accuracy. Nordica leaves the metal out, but one slight-framed tester warns it's still a beast. The rest wondered if it might hold its own against the 98-waisted big guns of the Mixed West category. "A lot of power for the price."
