What do Icelantic team rider Scotty Vermeriss, the curious chocolate
drink mix / "energy bar", Ovamaltine and French DJ's have in common?
Well, besides the fact that ovamaltine fueled Scotty while huckin
himself onto the boiler plate and getting funky to the dj's.... they
could all be found at this winter's kick off, Mondial du Ski,
Les Deux Alpes, France.
The event, held every year at the 3600 meter high glacier, is an
opportunity for ski companies to show off the season's new skis, check
out their competition and for skiers like us, to try as many skis as
we want - all weekend, for free!
In addition to the demo, Mondial du Ski also hosts two major rail jams,
a huge slopestyle comp, an independent film festival, great clubs, and
quite possibly the alps biggest freeride skis scene - a perfect place
for Icelantic's first International representation!
With the help of Board-Z, our French arm, Annelise and Scotty
successfully introduced the Scout, Nomad, Pilgrim and Shaman to the
French alps, and they were welcomed with wide open, enthusiastic arms.

Out of the bosom of the Air,
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
Descends the snow.
-Henery Wadsworth Longfellow
