Nordica's NRGy 90 is one of the widest skis in this category, and it prefers off-piste skiing, where it excels. Full of pop, power, and a relatively lightweight feel, it's perfect for lift-served skiers who prefer to spend their day searching for softer snow.
Nordica’s NRGy 90 is the epitome of a big mountain frontside ski. One of the widest skis in this category, it excelled at off-piste conditions, where its All Mountain camRock design (an early feature that places the contact point further back on the shovel), makes it easier to initiate in anything but hardpack. And which helped it blow through light powder, day-old crud, and windblown bumps like few other skis. It felt especially stable in mixed snow conditions, where you could continue making the same mid-radius turn.
If you ski a lot of hardpack, this is not your ski. If you’re lucky enough to ski a mountain where the weather provides a daily diet of mixed conditions–especially windblown and light powder–then this is a really fun, responsive ski.
