Another review from a great demo day at Mt Rose. Fortunate for us, we had powder the day before and there were plenty of stashes available if you knew where to look so I had the chance to ski the La Niña in the conditions she was intended to be skied.
I expected the La Niña to ski well in the powder but I had no idea she'd be so easy to ski. I mean, all I had to do was think about turning, popping off little pillows and dancing in the trees and it was like the La Niña read my mind.
I really didn't have much of a chance to ski firm snow on these except for the run out back to the demo tent, so I haven't really put her through the paces in that type of snow, but then ......that's not why you buy an amazing ski like this, right?
Nordica deserves a big thumbs up for this one.
