The Good

  • Super stable
  • Holds on edge, especially on hard snow
  • Likes to be pushed

The Bad

  • Less float than other skis in this category
  • More of an all-mountain ski feel
  • Not as lively
THE VERDICT

Nordica's Nemesis is a hard charging ski best suited for big mountain East Coast skiers and West Coast skiers who want more of an all-mountain (i.e., heavy edging) performance from their big mountain ski.

ITEM DESCRIPTION

The Nordica Nemesis is a big mountain ski designed for hard charging skiers who place a premium on hard snow performance and stability.

FULL REVIEW

Nordica’s Nemesis impressed testers with its incredible stability and strong edgehold. It’s a confident ski that loves medium to longer radius turns, and that can easily plow through an assortment of off-piste conditions as well six to seven inches of fresh snow. Also a plus, the ski’s hard snow capability.

It did not feel very floaty, despite its Early Rise CamRock design, and despite this being the big mountain category. It also isn’t as lively as other skis in this class, as it skis more like an expert level big mountain ski. Best recommended for East Coast skiers who want a bigger board, and West Coast rippers who put a premium on stability.
