A while back, the advent of wide-girthed power skis and twitchy frontside rippers pushed all-mountain skis into the leftover category. Initially, these skis weren't big enough to float effortlessly on deep days or aggressive enough to do well on hardpack. Fortunately, technology caught up to itself, and today all-mountain skis have come into their own as the overachievers on the mountain. Nordica's NRGy 100 makes a glowing representative for the category as a whole; as seriously sick chargers that do a little bit of everything well, the NRGy was bred to excel on the days you can't get a straight answer about what's good at the resort. Nordica builds the NRGy 100 with its All-Mountain CamRock profile, which uses traditional camber underfoot and a rockered tip to combine lay-them-out stability on groomers with playfulness in softer off-piste lines. Solid ABS sidewalls and a Torsion Bridge Titanal laminate eagerly blast through thick crud and refrozen bumps off-piste, while the light and lively I-Core beech wood core surfs and pivots through deeper stuff when Mother Nature surprises you with an afternoon of free refills. Before you assume the Torsion Bridge is just your run-of-the-mill sheet of metal though, listen up. Nordica shaved as much weight as possible from the metal, shaping it to direct powder to the edges without affecting the ski's fore-aft flex. The design works with four (count 'em) prepreg laminates to help the NRGy stand up to aggressive skiing in tough, unkind terrain. With the tapered tail, you can make any sort of turn shape you want, while the rockered tip planes over chunder and deep snow for a smooth all-condition ride. Throw in a speedy sintered UHMW base, and get ready to see why all-mountain no longer means what it used to.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
