Read the Review Transcript: Troy here. Just got done riding the Icelantic Nomad. I'd give this ski probably a 4 out of 5. Definitely for the advanced-expert skier. it would be a great out west, all-around ski. Early float, early tip rise gives it a great flotation in the soft snow but makes great long turns and medium-length turns on the groomers as well. I could ski this ski all day in pretty much any condition.
