Nordica Hell&Back Hike Pro Ski Boots 2012: Nordica s completely new sidecountry boots, Hell & Back, are built for downhill performance first but provide features that allow skiers the ability to pursue new adventures into the ever expanding resort sidecountry.

Nordica s new Hell&Back sidecountry boots provide skiers the uphill features they aspire to use without sacrifice to the downhill performance they need.
