    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."

    Alex Taran Reminisces About Winter Adventure With Valentine

    I would not quite call it “playing hooky.” Yet there I was 4 hours from my adult responsibilities, two skis under my feet, trudging slowly uphill. While my dog Valentin reassured me this was the best decision I could ever make, I knew that most people in my pre-med program would never do this.

    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.

    Checking in From Chile - Alex Taran

    Pic #1 - It's not often you're finishing your run and wishing you jumped in the back of a van to drink with friends. Either way I'm pretty lucky to have views like this is my daily life.

    Pic #2 - Sometimes the clouds part and you get serene powder turns.... This wasn't today, it's cloudy and the lower lifts are open... But I'm going to go ski more laps on the bobsled in the trees, act like a 7 year old, and enjoy the hell out of it... Peace!
