At the Icelantic Skis’ Headquarters in Golden, Colorado, founder Ben Anderson and his talented team are never short of big ideas. What might seem drastic for most is commonplace for this group of ski-manufacturing outdoor fanatics. Which is why it’s no surprise that the “Icey” crew decided to put their skis to the ultimate test of durability in their latest video. Highlighting the company’s triaxial-braided fiberglass “bombproof construction” and its comprehensive, three-year warrantee, the video above proves that these planks are designed and built to carry you through many ski seasons to come.

With tip and tail rocker, a near-symmetrical build, 115 mm waist width and a lively poplar wood core, the Nomad 115 is a terrific tool for the big-mountain skier who employs a more playful skiing style. Our testers praised its nimbleness, especially considering its size. “I have loved every single one of Icelantic’s models that I’ve had the opportunity to ride,” noted Madeline Dunn. “This Nomad 115 takes the cake. It carves just as well as the skinnier sticks while delivering that boaty, floaty vibe you need and crave in the powder. Strong work, Icey!”
An all-new waist width for Icelantic’s Maiden series, the Maiden 91 employs the same tried-and-true design elements as its big sister, the Maiden 101, just in a skinnier package. Icelantic employs its Fly-Weight wood core, made with pacific albus wood sandwiched between layers of fiberglass, to dampen the ride. The Maiden 91 boasts tip and tail rocker that’ll have you charging on- and off-piste at your leisure, yet its low swing weight enhances spins and trickery attempts. Sarina Scott said it best: “Shabba dabba ding dong, these things are a blast. So solid for 91 underfoot it blows ’mah damn mind. Carves, jibs, ducks, dives and dips. An all-around fun maker.”
