    Julian Carr's Love Affair With The Nomad 125

    "Whenever I look at my Nomad 125's, I am whisked away in a world far, and near, away.. A land of perfect pow skiing, with 5,000' vert couloirs. I summit a peak, inhale the perfect air, views abundant, sharpen my stare, place my Nomad125's in the snow, click in. I am ready to be one with my skis and respect, but SHRED, my surrounding. I drop in, arching turns in the pow, floating effortlessly turn to turn, playful, bouncy, responsive.. Perfect. Literally perfects skis. I gain speed, I rail turns, steady and reliable, strong skis at the same time playful. I love my Nomad 125's!"

    -Julian Carr

    Icey Shop Spotlight - Powder 7

    Just up the street from Icelantic's new Worldwide Headquarters in Golden is another homegrown business that's casting a big, ski-shaped shadow. Husband-and-wife team Jordan Jones and Amy Dannwolf started Powder7 in nearby Lakewood in 2007, and slow, steady growth has turned it into Colorado's favorite local, family-owned, internet ski and ride superstore. Their most recent advancement: a sweet-looking new storefront that opened this fall, built out of beetle-kill wood, packed with mountain-themed art, and displaying every type of ski equipment dreamt up by humans.</p> <p>Jordan and Amy met on the track team at Boston University, where Jordan attempted to charge Amy $5 admission to a party and ended up with a girlfriend instead. Like all East Coast skiers, Jordan came to Colorado after graduation, selling skis on eBay while working as a Denver Police Officer and a pro triathlete. Amy joined him after her own graduation, they taught themselves how to write code for eCommerce websites, and began the slow process of global internet domination.

    Winter is on its way back to the Colorado high country, friends, and chairlifts will be spinning in just a few weeks.

In honor of that noblest of endeavors, we're going take some time to highlight our favorite places to buy Icelantic skis in North America.

    First up is Powder7 Ski Shop in Golden, CO.

    Boys Weekend In Japan

    I couldn't handle any more pictures of friends skiing in Japan flooding my Instagram feed. I made a promise to myself last year that I would finally make it there this season and as these images of deep powder and epic tree skiing took over my thoughts I decided it was time to pull the trigger and experience it for myself.

    Impulsively I called up Ben to see if he wanted to join me for a boys weekend in Japan to chase powder, sushi, and adventure. He couldn't say no and a week later we found ourselves on the other side of the world with our skis in hand.

    We reached out to Japanese Icelantic athletes Shogo Kawano and Yuhei Yamada to see if they could join us short notice and they said yes. This was perfect, Ben and I both have been wanting to visit Japan to ski with these guys so it was game on!

    We caught a direct flight from Denver to Tokyo where we met Yuhei and hopped directly into a car and drove straight up to Hakuba. The drive from Tokyo was intense and exciting as we raced through the urban metropolis all lit up at night and into the mountains where we were elated to find deep snow. 

    Yuhei and Shogo took us to a resort called Cortina and we lapped the sidecountry there for a day and a half skiing pow in the trees, it was hard to quit. One of my favorite aspects of this trip was the universal language of skiing shared between all of us. The language barrier was a fun challenge since Ben and I knew no Japanese and when it came to skiing and shooting photos there was a mutual understanding of what was going on and what we were doing that goes beyond words. Navigating in the sidecountry and lining up shots was easy for us without commonly shared words, just a rich passion for skiing with the same snow monkey instincts.

    Check out this vid to follow us on our 48 hour adventure skiing and adventuring on the Main Island of Japan.
