Good for Big Mountain
The most confidence-inspiring ski in this year’s big-mountain field, the Blower offers impressive stability in all conditions. At 110mm underfoot, it’s more than fat enough for powder and crud skiing, but the wood core, vertical sidewalls, and 26m round-turn sidecut make the Blower perfectly workable on firmer snow. For 2009, Nordica ditched the twin tip in favor of a flat tail; now you can ride the ski further through the end of the turn. Intermediates or experts who prefer a softer ski might be out-gunned, though. The Blowah has some powah. 139/110/129; nordicausa.com
