The Nordica Patron continues to be a stalwart on the all-mountain scene, featuring a gradual early rise tip for flotation in deep snow and increased edge contact on hardpack. The Patron also comes in light for its class thanks to a race-inspired Energy 2 Carbon construction, cutting weight while providing the pop needed for dynamic turn transitions. "I opened this ski up through a little exit chute in the Bowl," says Big Sky local Jed Donnelly, "and it was really stable at high speeds on firm snow."
