“I really loved the overall stability of the Nordica Enforcer 104 across all types of conditions. I rode this ski in perfect powder, chopped snow and spring corn. I found it to be an unbelievable crud basher that inspired confidence when the conditions were not perfect. I was able to stomp big airs and charge hard, yet it still felt playful and surfy when the conditions got deep. I never felt underpowered, even though I tested it
in a smaller size than I would normally ride. Overall, I loved this ski as a daily resort driver, and would take it out every day that I knew I would be starting with powder, hitting some groomers and then ending with a chopped-up ski out.” –Kent Christensen

Your classic park-rat-turned-powder-skier, you might be able to guess which province Kent Christensen is originally from. The fast-footed, Ontario-born two-planker discovered his love for powder while going to university in Quebec, and moved to Revelstoke shortly thereafter, where he now pursues the deep stuff full-time in the winter. He earns his turns by the tree, planting as many of them as he can each summer to fund his ski season. As the president of the Revelstoke chapter of the conservation group Wildsight, Christensen’s thoughtful and caring character is all but obscured by the powerful smashiness of his full-throttle skiing. He’s a multi-faceted skier that shines in any kind of terrain, but with his tall stature typically rides a 190-centimetre, 110- to 120-millimetre-underfoot, flat or fully rockered ski.
