The Good

  • Aggressive
  • Super stable
  • Blasts through off-piste terrain
  • Fantastic hard snow performance

The Bad

  • Can feel a little sluggish for lighter skiers
  • No speed limit -- this is a FAST ski
THE VERDICT

Nordica's Helldorado blew our big mountain ski test wide open, eating up acreage and blasting through crud with authority. Not for the faint hearted, this is a fantastic big mountain expert ski.

ITEM DESCRIPTION

The Nordica Helldorado is a powerful, hard-charging big mountain ski.

FULL REVIEW

Hands down, the Nordica Helldorado is one of the best big mountain skis we’ve ever tested. It asbolutely rips on soft and hard snow, apparently has no speed limit, and thrilled every tester who took it out by rewarding them with one of the fastest and accurate runs they took all day. Even better is the fact that as much as the ‘Helldo’ loves long, hard arcs, its deep sidecut makes short swing turns remarkably easy as well.

Just be warned, this is NOT an intermediate level ski, and not a ski for Sunday drivers who just want to ease around the hill. If you love to rip big terrain, this is the ski for you.
