AWAKEN YOUR SENSES WITH ICELANTIC SKIS
Icelantic Skis to unveil its 2009/2010 product line under the theme â€œAwaken you Sensesâ€
DENVER-SEPTEMBER 22nd, 2009. Icelantic skis, a Denver based ski manufacturer unveils its highly anticipated 2009-2010 ski line, along with a â€œsensationallyâ€ revamped website. Icelantic recently partnered with Colorado Ski Country USA to become the â€œOfficial Ski of Coloradoâ€ and is the recipient of ISPOâ€™s award for Best Brand New Design for 2006.
Icelantic Skis is not your typical ski manufacturer; its headquarters are located in Denverâ€™s historic Santa Fe Art District, a thriving historic neighborhood, home to the densest art gallery population outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. In addition to housing the original ski paintings archives, the Gallery is host to an eclectic mix of local artists and photographers â€“ rotating every month.
Each of Icelanticâ€™s skis boasts a unique top sheet painting done by the companyâ€™s Art Director, Travis Parr. Since the companyâ€™s inception, Parr has been creating one-of-a-kind, striking paintings for each ski in Icelanticâ€™s line up.
Each year, the skis are unveiled under a common theme, such as the â€˜Warriorâ€™ theme of the 2008/2009 season, with each ski paying homage to a different historic warrior (Ghengis Khan or Joan of Arc). For the 2000-2010 season, the skis will represent the Five Senses: Sight, Sound, Touch, Taste and Feel. The theme: â€œAwaken Your Sensesâ€.
The skis themselves are not just pieces of art, however. They are handmade in the Never Summer Snowboard Factory and come with a two-year warranty. The ski company possesses somewhat of a cult following as well, with fans from Alaska to Maine, and from Switzerland to New Zealand.
Icelanticâ€™s unveiling of its product line up will begin on September 15th. This date marks when the skis will be shipped to its North American retail locations and is also when the brand new website will be launched (www.icelanticboards.com).
For Icelantic Skis, the company is more than just a ski manufacturer; it not only creates awe-inspiring skis, offers a place for local artists to display their works, but also is a youthful company that values top-quality products, artwork and its local community.
Icelantic Skis has been featured in Westword Newspaper, Freeskier Magazine, The Mountain Gazette, Ski magazine, Skiing Magazine, Backcountry Magazine, Powder Magazine, and voted to KMGHâ€™s A-list art gallery.
