The Nordica Hell & Back Skis will literally take you to Hell & Back. If by Hell you mean untouched powder bowls, that is. Hike or tour to your favorite spots with the benefit of a 20% lighter Wood I-Core and shred your secret spots thanks to Early Rise Camrock for soft snow goodness! With a 98 mm waist, the Hell & Back will be just as comfortable laying into a carve as they are lapping your favorite backside stash and a flat notched tail makes them climbing skin ready.
Rocker Type
All Mountain CamRock - All Mountain CamRock Technology pulls the traditional contact point of the tip back about 25% creating slight tip rocker to aid the camber under foot. This leads to increased flotation, velocity and maneuverability in soft snow as well as significantly increased easy of turn initiation in any condition.
 
Core
Energy CA i-Core - Offers a unique all mountain lightweight construction designed for 80% of skiers and 90% of the terrain on the mountain. With the market trending towards one-ski quivers, this unique lightweight i-core made up of poplar, ash, and an ultra light polyurethane center stringer, provides a very stable and versatile ride in all conditions on any part of the mountain. i-Core = lightweight versatility and stability
 
Laminates
Polliamide Top Foil
Two layer Binding Reinforcement - Carbon and Titanal
Sidewalls
ABS Sidewall - Helps dampen hard landings while decreasing vibration fatigue
Base
UHMW sintered graphite Electra Gallium
Additional Features
Pre-cut climbing skins available separately
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Alpine Touring
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Alpine Touring
    Also known as backcountry skis, alpine touring (AT) skis are designed for going uphill as well as downhill. These skis are typically light for their width and many feature fittings that accept climbing skins. AT skis vary in width and weight, with the wider heavier versions usually used for winter/deep snow touring and the skinnier, lighter skis usually used for spring/summer/long distance touring.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber skis pair a traditional cambered profile underfoot with an elongated, early rise tip borrowed from fully rockered skis. This profile places the front contact point further back from the tip, while the rear contact point remains close to the tail. The rockered tip allows for better flotation and less edge catch for increased float in deep snow, while the cambered rear stores and transmits energy similarly to a fully cambered ski.
  • Turning Radius: Medium
    Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Flat
    Flat
    This is your traditional tail, designed to have edge contact all the way through the tail, and only designed for skiing forward. This is also preferred for alpine touring, as you can stick the tails of your skis in the snow.
  • Ski Awards: 2014 Ski Magazine Gold Medal Gear, 2014 Skiing Magazine Official Selection
  • Warranty: 2 Years
