The new Nela 96 is so fun on groomers, testers had to be reminded to put this ski through its paces off-piste, too. Ladies reluctantly agreed to take a break from laying trenches to take on the bumps, crud, and trees, and much to their surprise found that the carvy Nela 96 (No. 1 in Hard-Snow Integrity) is just as fun in the rough. Testers described this ski as the Cadillac of the category—a smooth, fast ride, no matter the terrain. 

STRENGTHS: Hard-Snow Integrity, Stability at Speed

WEAKNESSES: Flotation, Forgiveness
