Icelantic Nomad SKNY skis for 2014

Hand Made in America in the heart of Colorado. Icelantic Skis have always been praised for their versatility in all conditions on and off piste, but their focus has always been on Colorado backcountry and off piste snow conditions in general. Enter the Icelantic SKNY (skinny)series. Why not copy some of the best skis from their lineup and give them the same performance only make them skinnier for on piste skiing? The Nomad SKNY ski is just that: It has the same flex and sidecut radius as it's girthier counterpart only made skinnier from tip to tail. This gives the ski quicker, livelier edge to edge performance on the slopes.
For backcountry skiers, another consequence of this diet plan is the reduction in weight and better edge hold on hard pack snow. Now you have the perfect Nomad ski for long tours and harder snow conditions on shoulder seasons where powder is harder to come by. And with a 120mm tip, this ski still gives you plenty of float for when the snow does get deep.
Be sure to check this ski out on your next visit to alpine. Support US Companies.
