Nordica La Niña

BEST FOR: ALPINE TOURING

The only difference between this ski and the Patron, Nordica’s much adored men’s big-mountain ski, is that, thanks to a middle layer of polyurethane, La Niña is a bit lighter and more nimble. Otherwise, you get the same stable, dampened feeling. Plus, because the ski’s tip profile extends beyond the contact point, when you put it on edge you get very little vibration (like you do with a lot of other rockered skis). 143/113/132, 9.1 lbs
