Holiday Week Update

We are halfway through the holiday week here in Stowe, Vermont and things are looking better than they did yesterday. During the Christmas holiday the mountain received 8-10 inches of new snow, however yesterday we saw some sleet/freezing rain. The warm-up is now over and it has been snowing off and on all day, in addition there is some light snow moving in for the weekend.

For all you city dwellers, you have two choices. One, stay in the city with the traffic, litter, and overpriced New Years Eve cocktails. Or two, head up to Stowe, VT – shred the mountain, stop by Skiershop, party for New Years in the snowy hills, and have way more fun than those who stayed at home. There is plenty to do in town this week, and even with a mediocre snowpack it beats staying around the city. For more info on happenings in Stowe check out Go Stowe.

Holiday Week Outlook

We at Skiershop are pretty psyched – the holiday week is approaching and we finally got some snow!  Today, Friday 12/23 Stowe Mountain Resort received 3-4 inches and the skiing was super fun. While it wasn’t a huge dump, it was much needed and at least makes the landscape white.

If you area heading up to Stowe or Northern Vermont, swing over to Skiershop for any last minute accessories or late presents. Heck, even if you don’t need anything stop by to chat about skiing. Below is the forecast for the upcoming week, looks tasty!

Icelantic 2012

Based in Colorado, Icelantic Boards are a unique ski company that have blended the lines of skis, art, and community. Their unique style is something we love at Skiershop.com, and we are stoked to offer the full line up of Icelantic Boards for 2012. While the snow has been late to the party, hopefully once it starts it won’t stop until May – so get ready now so you’re not bumming when the storms roll in.

This season Icelantic has based their topsheet designs on animals – here are a sample of skis to view, or click HERE to see the full 2012 line-up.

Gypsy: 152-125-147 / 170cm, 180cm, 190cm.

The Walrus is at home in the Arctic. Meaty, quick, nimble and a fantastic moustache sets this mammal apart – there is much more to him than meets the eye.

In response to market demand, Icelantic is introducing a reverse camber ski that will rock your world. The Gypsy’s nearly symmetrical dimensions (152, 125, 147) enables you to bounce playfully through deep pow, while the soft flex encourages buttering like you’ve never experienced, ultimately transforming the mountain into your personal playground. On hard-pack, the Gypsy engages the entire edge, enabling it to perform like it’s on rails – allowing for true, multi-dimensional skiing. This is no ordinary ski.

When the Tusks show up in your life, its time to reexamine yourself, your talents and the beliefs you carry.

The Walrus is full of surprises and like the Gypsy, is sure to have you rethinking and reexamining what you previously thought.

Keeper: 115-119-138 / 167cm, 178cm, 189cm.

Powerful and strong, the Elk, a regal staple of the western United States mountains represent great strength, power and stamina.

The Keeper’s early rise tip and tail gives its skier the ability to float and slash through bottomless POW – forward and switch like no other. With traditional camber underfoot, the Keeper’s tip and tail rise to the occasion when triggered by the skiers weight allowing for unmatched control and ultra carving. Combine this with Icelantic’s signature side cut and the Keeper transforms from a pure powder ski to a crud bustin, trench carving machine.

When an elk comes into your life, it means that you are about to hit your stride. What are you working towards? Alaska Heliskiing with your Keepers?…… We thought so.

Pilgrim: 127-90-115 / 151cm, 169cm, 179cm.

The salmon’s aim is to overcome all obstacles that present themselves. The Pilgrim is a carving machine. Designed with a soft tail, substantial sidecut and a solid flex, this ski tackles everything from East Coast blue ice to early morning freshies.

For those looking for their first fat ski, this is the way to go. Also extremely popular among tele skiers.

When the salmon appears to you, take a moment to reexamine how you go to where you are, and what is to come because of it.

Surface Team Member - Blake Nyman

Surface is still a relatively new ski company, however you wouldn’t know given how fast they grew. They’re similar to Klint, blew up on the scene and aren’t going away.

Skiershop has been carrying Surface for several years, and we are really stoked to have them as one of our featured brands! Below are a few skis to take a look at, click on either of them or HERE to view our featured brand page for Surface.
