The Icelantic Shaman - Page 2

post #31 of 36
Never heard of them but googled it...snowboard co. makes both Fat-ypus and Icelantic down in Denver then? I guess pressing skis in the garage will only take you so far, not to mention always having to placate the neighbors with free skis every now and then.

No, I knew Never Summer was certainly not a garage project when I saw their website. I was referring to companies like Icelantic apparently having outgrown their garages while it seems a few others still do make 'em in the there.

can you have a forward stance on the keepers like they say you can on the shamans and which ski is stiffer?

I haven't read the whole thread, but my take on stance, aside from bad back seat skiing, is that a ski should have a broad sweet spot that lets you make turns from a fairly wide platform, fore and aft. If you have to press forward all the time, the ski has a small sweet spot, and I'd reject it on that basis only, every time. this is my preference, as skiing from many positions is fun when the situation calls for it or you just want to have fun. haven't skied what you're looking at, but you could find out some of this from others who have.
