The sister to Nordica's Patron, the new La Niña (143-113-132) received high marks in all test fields, particularly stability and flotation. Rodman praised La Niña's "crazy fun GS turns on the groomers and fantastic float." Weatherbee liked its versatility: "It's great in all conditions and surprisingly smooth in bumps." Minneci was impressed with the stability: "If it's the appropriate length, this ski is well balanced and confidence inspiring around the mountain." Design elements include significant rocker in the tip and tail and a broad, blunt-shaped tip for flotation and reduction of vibration. The core is made from Nordica's women-specific Energy Ca wi-Core—a blend of poplar, ash and lightweight polyurethane stringers.
