    Early Season Maiden111 Voyage - Chasing November Powder In Idaho With Amy David

    Icelantic's Amy David tells us about her first powder days of the season on the new Maiden 111.   "November is the time of year we return to winter. Although it happens every year, each time feels like a new “Maiden voyage” into the ski season. The anticipation for the first skiable snowfall builds, and the first round of powder turns transmits a deep energy throughout the ski community. My first turns of the season commenced on the summit of Galena Pass adjacent to Sun Valley, Idaho."

    Sawtooths Shred to Hot Springs Soak on the Nomad Lite 105 With Amy David

    The Idaho mountains caught my attention a few summers ago, and this winter I felt a magnetic pull to the majestic Sawtooth Range. Imagine the mountains of Patagonia and Alaska had a baby… that’s the Sawthooths in my mind. The mountain ranges surrounding Sun Valley, Idaho have accumulated a snowpack ranking as the third deepest on record which means many zones that are normally un-ridable have been dubbed the green light. Early season, we ticked off laps in the burn, Grumpy’s and Hourglass along the side-country of Sun Valley Resort. While the rare depths of the Wood River powder was a treat, my gut was yearning for the rugged spires of the Sawtooth backcountry. Skiing there is relatively remote, takes a strong physical effort and quality ski partners. Lucky for me, I’ve been adventuring with Sun Valley local backcountry skier/sledder extraordinaire, Jeremy Lato with all the insider beta on the area. This blog takes you along my ski adventures to Boyscout, Sickle, Gun Barrel, Outer Space and Petzholdt Couloirs, and the elusive North East face of Hortsmann Peak, “The Shield.” I rode the Nomad Lite 105 ski providing the freeride style on the descent with incredible light weight to fly up the skin track.

    Meeting The Maiden - From Alta To The Alps With Amy David

    Jumbo size snowflakes floated from the sky as I clambered in my ski boots through the Alta Ski Area parking lot until I found fellow Icey athlete and team manager, Scotty VerMerris. I squinted to see through the blustery snowfall as he pulled out a pair of skis from his truck. This was my first moment meeting The Maiden. Scotty handed the skis over to me, and we hustled to the Wildcat lift. After clicking into the skis and getting lifted into the sky on the two-man chairlift, I recall staring down at the ski’s topsheets mesmerized until it was time to put those babies to use. All afternoon, we repeated the cycle. Lift ride to pow slashing, pillow bashing, and cliff dropping. I immediately fell in love with the Maiden for it’s versatility of being playful and surfy in the smooth powder while maintaining a durability in the chopped up snow and providing a stable ski to land airs on.
