Icelantic Skis pays homage to Jerry Garcia, Grateful Dead with new Nomad collaboration

An email from Icelantic Skis popped into my inbox this morning with the subject line “Limited Edition Icelantic X Jerry Garcia Nomads.” Naturally, I was quick to click the link, being a fan of the legendary band myself. Turns out, the Denver, Colorado-based ski brand is producing a short run of Jerry Garcia collaboration skis featuring topsheet artwork from “Facets 1,” Garcia’s 1986 series of airbrush paintings. According to the email, Facets 1 was “an experimental journey with stencils used to create crystal-like patterns with a variety of colors to produce a three-dimensional appearance.” The graphics on these shred sticks are pleasing to the eye, to say the least. The Nomad was a FREESKIER Editors’ Pick in the 100-114 mm freestyle category of the 2015 Buyer’s Guide—it’s a damn fine ski for all-mountain enthusiasts.
