If you're looking for a powder-capable ski that'll swivel underfoot in tight spaces but still let you stand on the gas and straightline yourself out of trouble, you'll have a hard time finding a better candidate than the Nordica Patron Skis. Wide but not overwhelming at 113 mm underfoot, the Patron pivots almost effortlessly when you need it to, but the Powder CamRock profile lets you carve a clean turn at speed by engaging tons of edge. One of the best all-rounders out there for soft snow oriented freeriders.
Powder camRock Significant rocker in both tip and tail with mild camber underfoot lets you float effortlessly in pow, yet track with authority. The low, broad blunt nose design maximizes snow contact when the ski is on edge and reduces unwanted tip vibration.
Energy 2 Carbon Offers a comfortable and playful ride with a full ash/poplar wood core from tip to tail and two layers of Carbon over the edges to provide maximum agility and stability in all conditions.
Prepreg Carbon Two carbon laminates above and below the core
Poliamide Top Sheet
ABS Sidewalls Helps dampen hard landings while decreasing vibration fatigue.
UHMW Base Ultra High Molecular Weight sintered graphite Gallium base

Comments about Nordica Patron Skis 2015:
Skied these on icy groomers, spring corn, and steep chunky terrain at Whistler BC and liked them enough to buy a pair. The "camrock" gives the ski an effectively short turning radius, while the width allows it to float in powder. I normally ski a 176ish, but due to the rocker on these, the 186 felt just great. Due to greater tip and tail flex, they are not as great at speed or bombing down hill as some stiffer skis in this class, but they can do just about anything.
