Top Powder Skis 2013: Nordica La Niña

This women's-specific ski will take her to the next level of pow skiing



NORDICA LA NIÑA
Nordica's brand-new women's-specific La Niña is a monster ski intended for serious skiers, but testers found that even the 185 and 193cm lengths were forgiving. The right combination of aggressive rocker and camber underfoot, paired with a woodcore that's 25 percent lighter than its male counterpart, allows it to float high in the fluff, but still be snappy in the glades. Said Powder's reviewer, "The high-rise tip and tail rocker made me believe I was a powder ninja, maneuvering through the trees and launching airs without worry."
