Skier's Choice Draft Picks
Round 5 – Boot Selection, AT/Sidecountry/Telemark, Pick 5The Nordica Hell&Back Hike W boot certainly delivers. First, it’s hard charging and stomp worthy, thanks to Nordica’s Progressive Flex and Tongue Rebound. Nordica’s new flex rating for this boot is the sum of three factors: flex, progression and rebound. Second, it’s a competitive uphill boot, with a rubber sole for optimum traction while climbing over rocks and ice, a 45-degree instep for maximum heel retention, and a cuff feature for quick release for hiking or skinning. The Hell&Back women’s boots have a comfy chick-specific liner making for both an enjoyable ascent and descent.
