When launched, “ladies’ gear” was for girls who needed help on the hill—getting on the lift, getting off the lift, zipping their coats with mittens on. Enter the Nemesis—for girls who need help scouting 50-footers. When translating the women’s version from the unisex (see the Enforcer), Nordica didn’t strip out the metal. The result is a burly, damp ski—the category’s strongest—that chewed up Gad Chutes then carved cleanly back to the lift. “Makes a good skier invincible,” said Loring.
