I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Nordica El Capo. I give this ski 5 out of 5. It's big. It's stiff. It's fast. I feel like you can ski full throttle on pretty much any kind of terrain or through anything. It's got 2 sheets of metal that will do that for you. If you like big turns, it's not terribly nimble but if you want to crush it off- piste, this would be a good ski for you. The Nordica El Capo. 5 out of 5.

I'm Kyle. I just got off the Nordica El Capo. I give this ski a 5 out of 5. I really liked it. With the metal in it it feels really stiff and can handle any kind of speed. So, on the firmer days I'm sure it's going to hold really well for anything on the mountain. But even with the little bit softer snow like today it just absolutely ripped. I give this ski a 5 out of 5.

Hi, I'm Steve. I just got off the Nordica El Capo. This is an awesome ski. For the advanced rider, I'm going to have to give this a 5 out of 5 stars. This ski just cruises. It's probably one of the fastest skis I've ridden all day today, if ever. Again, for turns it holds a great edge in short and long turns and just floats over everything. I highly recommend this ski. Again, 5 out of 5 stars for the El Capo.

Hey, it's Hunter here. I just got off the Nordica El Capo and this is a 4 out of 5 star ski for me. This ski is for the skier where a freight train isn't enough and 2 freight trains is all that will do. This ski's little brother still has plenty of beef, plenty of girth. This thing is tip it over and hang on. It's silky smooth through turns. It's easy to start a turn. Pretty easy to finish a turn given its mass but this ski weighs a lot and takes a demanding skier. If you're ready to power through all day, it's a worthy choice.

Hi. Thom here with the Nordica El Capo. I'm going to give this guy 4 out of 5 stars. Really kind of a cool ski. Lots of metal in here in a wide ski so it's just got tons of edge hold. Super powerful, super burly ski. It demands somebody that's either just a heavyweight skier or somebody that wants a ski that's going to be a challenging, powerful, super-demanding ski. It requires a lot of work. It's going to kill your legs by the end of the day but if you want stable, just crud-busting performance, this is it.

Hi, I'm Mike. I just got done skiing the Nordica El Capo. This is a new offering from Nordica this year. Super burly, super stiff ski. I think it was actually a little bit too much ski for me. I felt not as comfortable on this as I have on the others in the Nordica line. I think this is really for the guy that's just charging really hard, a little bit heavier, really powerful big mountain turns. It's a little bit unforgiving at the slower speeds and with the shorter and medium radius turns. So, if you're the guy that's just a hard charger, all the time, thousand miles an hour, hair on fire, then I think this would probably be the ski for you. But for me, I'm giving this a 3 out of 5. This is the Nordica El Capo.
