Nordica Ace of Spades
Over the past few years Nordica has emerged as a real-deal contender in the park ski scene with world-class athletes including TJ Schiller, Peter Olenick and Alex Schlopy helping guide product development. The Ace of Spades is built with a full wood core sandwiched by two sheets of titanol for stability at high speeds and maximum pop on features in and out of the park. “This ski is solid underfoot and is great for fast and big features,” reported one tester. Camber underfoot and slight rise in the tip and tail allow it to maneuver in variable conditions and a symmetrical side cut and center mounting position combine for a balanced, light swing weight.
