Mondial du Ski at 3600 meters high

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. Check out the event at In other BIG news, Icelantic has officially commenced its 06/07 shipping season, so all of you out there, chompin at the bit, can now ask your local retailer to try a pair!

Sincerely, Icelantic 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 P.S. -- Don't forget to check out Board-Z and all of our other dealers at: ------------------ Copyright, Icelantic LLC, 2006
