Reviewer Craig

"Powder bump runs with numerous face shots, creamy untracked pow turns, and even huge carve turns on empty groomed runs at the beginning of the day are my favorite. I am not a high speed skier."

Looking for a center mounted powder ski?


If you are used to a more centered mounted ski, this Icelantic Nomad 125 offering is a great choice. The Nomads characteristics remind me of the Line Mordecai with its short front, and rather substantial rear section. It is very quick edge to edge for this much ski.


With bamboo, triaxial glass, and rubber layers in its laminate, the Nomad 125 is quite stable, and makes beautiful short and medium radius turns. At speed, it's stability was good for longer radius turns. It's moderate damping provided smooth transitions in and out of piles.


I would give the soft flexing Nomad a "good" rating in soft bumps. It offered adequate support, for such a short front section, which visually alarmed me, when I glanced down in the bumps!


The Icelantic Nomad 125's long and wider rear section should provide great support for landing big jumps. It's short front section may provide slightly less float upfront, but it's 190 length, 125 width, and soft flex add to its pow credentials.

Icelantic about the Nomad 125

"Freeriding is about having FUN – and that’s why we’ve developed the Nomad Freeride Series. The Nomad 125 is a fully rockered POW slayer! Designed with a full rockered profile that matches the radius of the sidecut, the Nomad 125 is perfect for hitting pillow lines, and bounding through untouched pow but transforms into a carving machine when rolled on edge. See why all of our athletes love this ski and get on a pair!", says Icelantic
