2015 Nordica Nemesis ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its women’s All-Mountain Back Category.

Nordica adds a powder tip profile and thus a new shape for the 2014/15 Nemesis. The versatile 98-mm waist remains the same, as does the tip rocker and Nordica's women-specific Energy Ca wi-Core—a blend of poplar, ash and two lightweight polyurethane stringers. The Nemesis received highest scores for stability from our testers. “Limit your time on the groomers because this ski is best for crud and soft snow,” says Minneci. “Unlike its predecessor, this version doesn’t inspire carving,” adds Pugliese. “But it’s one of the best floaters in the category and will go anywhere on the mountain without too much effort.”
