    Maiden 111

    $699.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    New this year, the Icelantic Maiden 111 celebrates all that is feminine in skiing.

    The centerpiece of the artwork on the topsheet, created by Icelantic co-founder Travis Parr, represents mindfulness and intuition. The rest of the ski is built for women to go out and explore the high mountains.

    Pairing the design from Icelantic’s bestseller, the Nomad, but with a lighter wood core called Pacific Albus, the Maiden 111 is a member of the rocker tip-and-tail, camber-underfoot club. (If that sounds familiar, it’s a profile every ski company has dialed recently.) The Maiden’s two millimeters of camber underfoot are enough to make this ski turn, pivot, and crush terrain up and down the mountain. The ski responded gracefully to controlled, fast turns down the narrow, chalky chutes of Big Sky’s Headwaters. It held an edge on long arcs on the groomers, but whipped up tight turns in the trees. The wide shovel in the tip planed through crud and set-up the carve in windbuff.

    The Maiden checked all the boxes except for one. She is an earth-bound vessel. She’s predictable, not lively—which can be a good thing, but also makes it harder to pop up and catch air.

    The best part of the Maiden is that it fits a wide range of women, coming in a size run from 162 to 177 centimeters. Add to that the rest of the Icelantic package—handmade in Denver, Colorado; a three-year warranty—and the Maiden is a solid addition to a company whose values are rooted in outdoor exploration. —Julie Brown

    Nomad 105 LITE

    $749.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    The Nomad 105 was already my favorite ski from Icelantic because of its shape and rocker profile. New this year, Icelantic trimmed the fat on their most popular freeride ski, building the Nomade LITE to suit the uphill market.

    Over the years, I have really started to prefer lighter and lighter ski equipment, whether it’s the skis, boots, bindings, or the beer. (OK, maybe that last one was a little too far for my Double IPA homeland, Vermont!) In all honesty, lightweight ski equipment allows your body to attack the hill harder and longer, and that is always a plus.

    By using an Ochroma core, more commonly known as Balsa, a very lightweight wood, the Nomad LITE drops 30 percent of the weight compared to the straight-up Nomad 105. I appreciated the lightness, especially when conditions got deep. The ski was easy to navigate and manage, even in the 191-centimeter size. The 105-millimeter waist keeps the ski versatile. It can be an all-mountain fun tool or a straight park stick. It has a decent amount of rocker in the tip and tail connected by just a touch of camber underfoot, a profile that allows the Nomad LITE to swivel and slarve around the mountain like it’s a playground.

    I only found a few negatives. Just 2 millimeters of camber make the LITE less snappy out of a turn. The softer core is not great for big skiers in chunky or firm conditions and makes the ski a little chattery.

    Overall, the new Nomad LITE is for the person who wants to escape the crowds. That’s an enviable mission, as is Icelantic’s commitment to make all their skis in the USA, and their three-year warranty that’s supported by their bombproof construction. For the fun havers that like to slide around on the mountain, give the Nomad LITE a spin. —Ryan Rubino

    Pioneer 109

    $699.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    Evolution is a good thing. Just ask the human race. Or Ice Cube’s career. The same methodology holds true for Icelantic’s Pioneer line. After the success of its Pioneer 96, the Colorado-made brand introduced the next episode with its Pioneer 109, a ski designed to tickle the sweet spot between powder and piste.

    Replacing the more directional Shaman in Icelantic’s lineup, the Pioneer 109 takes the float from its predecessor and the lively poplar core from its namesake, the Pioneer 96. Despite a larger waist than the 96, the 109 is built with the same aggressive sidecut, so expect to turn ’em, not slide ’em.

    With conditions favoring hard-pack moguls at Big Sky, the twin-tip Pioneer 109 stood up to a steady workout of tight, precise turns. Its 19-meter turn radius is better than most in its width-class, and the 7 (count ’em) millimeters of camber, had me confident bouncing in and out of trees and bumps. Arguably, a little too confident, and with a 144-millimeter-wide shovel, the Pioneer 109 started to feel a little bit hooky, forcing me to pump the brakes a few times to keep from getting caught and going fall line ass backwards.

    Despite catching up a bit in the tighter terrain, this same shovel tip design and tip-and-tail rocker eats softer snow for breakfast, brunch, and dinner. Coupled with the dampness of the poplar core, this shape provides versatility in high alpine terrain, where powder can give way to windswept ice over the next rollover. Even though Icelantic continues to grow year after year, the brand stays true to its “made in America” roots, manufacturing just outside of Denver and offering one of the best warranties in skiing. It also manages to keep its prices affordable. That’s a win-win. —Kade Krichko
