Brand Claims

What does Nordica claim about this ski? [Ian] This is one of the most popular skis on the market for good reason. Nordica really markets this as a one ski quiver for people that like to go off piste.

[Luke] Nordica claims that the Enforcer 94 is their go everywhere, do it all ski.

Overall Impressions

What is your overall impression of the ski? [Ian] I had a really good time on it. I don't normally ski this directional of a ski and I had a blast carving it up. It was super fun that it was a great day to see the all mountain potential of this ski.

[Luke] Overall, I had a really fun time on these Nordica Enforcer 94s. They felt really good underfoot and were a great carving ski - not overly stiff and not overly demanding.

How does the shape of the ski affect the way it rides? [Luke] This is definitely a stiffer, more confident ski. It has more camber underfoot and more of a flat tail.


How does the ski turn? [Ian] It was really easy to initiate turns.

[Luke] It has a little bit of rocker in the tip that makes it a little bit easier for turn initiation.

What is the edge hold like? [Luke] The Enforcer 94 has a really strong edge. I could set it on edge, apply a little bit of pressure and kind of forget about it.

What about dampness? Any chatter in the skis? [Luke] The skis have two sheets of metal sandwiched over a wood core. Having said, they're not crazy stiff, but they're damp and stable. There are some stiffer skis out there, but I liked that these skis were stiff enough that they felt stable underfoot, but they weren't so stiff that they were kicking me around either.

How does it feel in terms of speed? [Ian] It really impressed me on the groomers. It was amazing for fast speed carving.

[Luke] This is definitely a ski made for skiing on trail at higher speeds. If you're comfortable at higher speeds, you could really just let them rip. It felt a little bit stiffer through the shovel than the Enforcer 100, so it was a little bit more adept at cranking higher speed turns.


How is it for freestyle skiing? [Luke] These are not freestyle skis. These are not meant for being skied in the park.

Is it good for skiing switch? [Luke] They don't have a twin tip and are not really meant for skiing backwards. That being said, if you have a kiddo who you're chasing around and sometimes you end up skiing backwards, they're definitely capable of that.


How is it for freeride skiing? [Luke] They were fun off piste and in more variable snow. They can hold their own in powder, too - not the best, but they can do what they need to do and get you around.

How is it in powder? [Ian] It's wide enough at 94 that it will float pretty decently. I had a good time even in a foot and a half of snow. Obviously in really deep snow you want to go over 100. But this definitely was no slouch!

[Luke] With the 94 millimeter waist, they lack a little bit in powder. If you're looking for something that's going to be better suited for you in powder, the Enforcer 100 would be a better option.

How is it in uneven terrain and chunder? [Ian] I was impressed at how well it did in cut up snow and packed powder.

[Luke] The Enforcer 94 can hold their own in chunder and crud- that stiffer flex pattern really allows them to blast through all that variable snow.

How is it skiing in the trees? How is its maneuverability? [Ian] It was great in the moguls, trees, and off piste. [Luke] They were fun in moguls and easy to maneuver. And that's what I was really impressed by with these skis - you could easily start pivoting on them and make shorter turns.

What terrain is this ski good for? [Ian] It’s an incredible all mountain resort ski. [Luke] With a 94 millimeter waist, the ski is definitely a little bit more oriented for on piste skiing, ripping groomers, ice, and moguls.

What terrain should skiers avoid with it? [Luke] It can handle powder, but if you're routinely skiing a lot of soft snow, I'd probably bump you up to the Nordica Enforcer 100 - that'll give you more float.


Who would you recommend these skis to? [Ian] I would recommend this ski to anyone from the progressing beginner who's starting to explore off trail all the way to the expert skier that wants to ski fast. It's a really versatile all mountain ski that appeals to a lot of people.

[Luke] I would recommend these skis to a more advanced East Coast skier who wants a nice, damp, stable ski and is mainly skiing groomers, but still wants a little bit of versatility on the occasional six inch powder day. These would definitely be capable and super fun.

Also, a solid intermediate who's mastered the fundamentals, is getting more aggressive in their skiing, and wants to progress at a faster pace would have a really good time on these skis.

Who should avoid these skis, there are better options out there for them? [Luke] Because they have such a stiffer flex pattern, I would not recommend these to a beginner skier.

My parents put me on skis at 4, I started competing in moguls at 12 and became a Junior Olympian at 15. At 16 I decided to switch disciplines to Slopestyle and Big Air, and was ranked in the top 50 in the world by 20. After some injuries I retired from competing and shifted my focus to Backcountry skiing and making films. I've been jumping off cliffs, hitting jumps and skiing powder ever since! I love all types of skiing, from ripping groomer turns to straight lining couloirs, so whatever your preference is I've got your back! I love sharing my passion for skiing and getting people stoked to get out on the mountain. Whether you're just getting into skiing or are looking to take your skills to the highest level, I'm thrilled to help! The right piece of gear can be the difference between a great day on skis and a miserable day. Each person has different needs and together we can find exactly what you need to have a blast this winter!

If my parents could have foreseen how deep my obession for skiing would become, they might never have put me on skis. I've been fortunate enough to experience the entire spectrum of skiing; from growing up racing on icy Midwest slopes, to exploring every nook and cranny of the Wasatch Range backcountry in Utah, and on to skiing from the summit of 20,310' Mount Denali. Through it all, I've relied on my skills, my partners — and my gear. Our passion is what drives us. But our gear is what gets us to the top.
