Icelantic’s No. 1 selling freeride ski is good at everything. Made with three sheets of multi-directional fiberglass surrounding a poplar wood core, this ski seeks the soft snow but has a great time get- ting to it, too. Testers praised its confidence-building nature, how it charged through crud with ease, and found themselves chuckling as they raced down the mountain for last chair at top speed. Made in Colorado, the Nomad 105 is a great one-ski option anywhere in the West.
Strengths: Crud Performance, Stability at Speed
