I feel like I’ve been on a bit of a roll lately with the Nordicas. What can I say — Nordica had a demo tent at my local hill both last week and today. Last time I tried the Firefox; this time: the Conquer!!!!
Again, I’m an advanced skier, 5’1″, 110 lbs.
Specs: Tried the 154 (126-84-110)
Conditions today were, in a word, awful. Death cookies, ice, and crud.
Did it bother the ski? Not at all. This is one powerhouse. Even with an 84 mm waist, it handled the ice and death cookies like a, well, like a conqueror. Busted through everything, yet was able to get on edge like a champ. Grippy, smooth, and stable, better in longer and medium turns than short. A very fun ski. If you want a ski that can dominate the hill, this would be an excellent choice.
