|We are an innovative ski company from CO, this is our third year on the market. The core concept behind our ski design investigates and exhibits the importance of a ski's surface area. We call our skis AT Boards because of the versatility of each of the skis ability, from tight east coast trees, to big lines in Alaska to champagne powder in Colorado. We aim to reintroduce fun and convenience back into the ski industry and once you try a pair, you'll see why.
Icelantic was a childhood dream of founder Ben Anderson, 24. During middle and highschool, Ben interned at several local manufacturers in the Denver area, and learned the art of ski construction. After attending Western Washington University for 2 years of industrial design, Ben decided it was time to get serious. He returned to Colorado, bought a used ski press and began pressing skis in the garage of his parents house in Evergreen, CO. With his passion for skiing and a keen sense of design and detail, Ben noticed a gap in the market and decided to pursue a ski that would fill the void. From this was born the Scout, Icelantic's pioneer ski of 2004.
The Scout was introduced at SIA in LasVegas in January of 2004. The first year out in the market proved extremely successful as measured by the amount of people that tried them and the percentage of those that bought.
The design of the boards, especially the length (143cm) is a big deterrent for many people. The dimensions and composites of the skis, however, make riding the Scout, similar to skiing a 180cm shaped ski. That is, with out the extra 40cm infront of you.
From the Scout, we designed the Nomad (13cm longer) with the same materials, and dimensions; the Pilgrim, our park/slalom carver; and the Shaman, our unprecedented tapered powder ski that holds one hell of an edge! The company is now made up of Ben Anderson, founder and US Sales, Annelise Loevlie, International Sales and Marketing; Travis Cook, R&D, Sam Warren, soft goods; and Travis Parr, Head artist - All Colorado natives and lont time friends.
Our Mission is to initiate innovation in the snow sports industry by exploring the importance of a ski's surface area and introducing a revolutionary product designed to reduce unneccesary length while providing unmatched performance. We will continually apply the latest ski technology with Colorado craftsmanship and cutting edge graphic art to ensure the highest quality product on the market.
Icelantic Boards began operations in 2004
