When you have one of the industry's bestselling and most popular skis in your pocket, why switch things up? That's been Nordica's M.O. for a few years now. And guess what? It still is. Only now, the 2020 Nordica skis lineup features even more Enforcers, including a slightly rebuilt freeride-oriented version.

In addition to splitting the Enforcer into two lines with two fresh models, Nordica removes the Navigator 90 and retains the 80 and 85 as more on-piste oriented skis with many Enforcer properties.

We're not spoiled.
Powder7 staffers just try out current and popular skis every week, embark on company powder missions, crush sunny groomers en masse, and talk about skis for a living. We also go to an industry demo event every November at Loveland Ski Area to stay on top of our craft.
Ok, maybe we are spoiled. But our ski fever comes from a good place—we want to try as many products as we can in order to help you get on the right pair of skis.
So here are some of our favorites from last month's Loveland demo, just in time for you to blow through that holiday check from your mother-in-law.

If we had a dollar for every time customers say they're looking for "good all mountain skis," we would...well...we would own more pairs of good all mountain skis.
In today's skiing landscape, defining categories of gear can be tough. All mountain skis differ for different people. The powder-hungry freeride skier at Jackson skis the whole mountain on playful sticks with waist widths around 110 millimeters. The rad dad drops his kids at a lesson in the morning and has four hours to charge every trail off the summit quad on the widest skis he's ever used—metal-loaded chargers that measure 93 millimeters underfoot. The Bostonian escapes to Killington to rip bumps, groomers, and tree stashes on 85-millimeter-wide Swiss Army knives that are the best "all mountain" skis he read about ... Continue Reading

You love him. He loves skiing.
Whether or not you also ski, finding a gear gift for him can quickly prove intimidating. There’s just so much stuff. He’s just so particular. Or maybe he just never coherently communicates what he needs or wants.
Whether he errs on the wild side or religiously sticks with that jacket you got him 20 years ago or blows you off to chase powder, we’ve got you covered.
And because you’re reading this gift guide, we know he loves you too.
For: The Trendsetter
He’s the personable one, the one cracking jokes and grabbing you a beer and laughing at himself. Those bright colors and that distinctive style mean you never lose him on the mountain. Get him a gift that keeps his party rolling.

Highlights from the 2019 Nordica skis lineup:
Best-Sellers Back for More
The Santa Ana, a wildly popular women's freeride ski, comes back in 2019 at 93, 100, and 110 waist widths. The Astral, Nordica's lightweight-yet-strong all-mountain series, also returns in four versions—74, 78, 84, and 88.
The counterparts of the Santa Ana and Astral on the men's side, the Navigator and best-selling Enforcer, feature graphical updates. At 110, 100, and 93 underfoot, the Enforcer offers burly-yet-skiable all-mountain/freeride versatility, while the Navigator rounds out the series at waist widths of 75, 80, 85, and ...

2020 Nordica Enforcer 93 Description:
The Enforcer 93 returns unchanged for 2020, except for a new sleek topsheet. There is no reason to mess with greatness. Stiffened by two sheets of titanium, rockered, powerful, playful and ready to party this ski remains a stalwart among the ranks of high performance skis. Energy 2 Titanium Construction offers the highest level of performance with a full wood core from tip to tail and two layers of Titanium extending over the edges. This construction comes directly from the World Cup and provides the most precise flex curve as well as maximum power transmission, torsion resistance, and rebound in all conditions. All Mountain camROCK! Technology pulls the traditional contact point of the tip back about 25% and the tail 5% creating slight tip and tail rocker to aid the camber under foot. The result - increased flotation, velocity, and maneuverability in soft snow as well as significantly increased ease of turn initiation in any condition. The Enforcer 93 wins awards year after year, and this season will be no exception.
