Experience with Icelantic

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I follow these guys on all the normal channels, and really appreciate what they are doing. Cool guys, for skiers by skiers, made in USA, really seem to take skier input to heart...

Does anyone have experience with the Icelantic Pilgrim? Found a really good deal, and was just wondering if anyone has ridden them? 90mm under foot, early rise tip, camber under foot, flat tail. Billed as a frontside carver - which is what I'm looking for. Supposed to be middle of the road flex, but towards the stiffer end.

The ones I'm looking at are 2015 model. I'm 5'4" @ 155lbs. Looking at a 169. Solid level 7/8 skier. Normally, I would demo, but don't have that luxury. Sub $300.

I didn't think the pilgrim had any rise. The original twin version was a fun ski, and a great mogul ski. When they flattened the tail to make a 'technical' ski, they ruined it. I skied a pilgrim SKNY at a demo day last year and it was the worst ski I've ever been on. And I'm a long time Icey fan, I have a shaman and an older, awesome nomad soft ( best ski they ever made), and I'm getting a nomad skny for my boy. I've skied many skis they've made except the women's skis and the seeker. They are a great small company making quality skis in the USA with great graphics. The newer pilgrims are dogs that won't hunt, though.

Arrighty then. I'm eager to try next year's Nomads though. Looks like the will have 3 different sizes - 95, 105, 115, & 125. Wait, that's 4...
