Product Info

The Icelandic Shaman Skis are the company's most recognizable product with their unique 160 mm wide diamond-shaped tip and huge surface area. What's surprising about this ski is its ability to rip on varied snow and hardpack, making it versatile enough to use every day if you live in a big snow region. This is thanks to its unique shape and sidecut with a 110 mm waist that handles everything you throw at it.

Comments about Icelantic Shaman Skis 2013:

First, about me... I am a 6ft 150lb expert skier who spends most of my time in the tightest trees I can find, in the sidecountry, and hucking cliffs. I spend relatively little time skiing backwards or taking park laps. My everyday skis are volkl mantras and my park skis are K2 fujatives. I have skiied on dozens of different powder/all mountain skis as well as a few different park skis.

Now on to the skis... If you couldn't tell by the way they look, this is a very unique ski. They are an absolutely fantastic ski for skiing trees. They also rip the groomers better than any other powder specific ski. If you ski lots of tight, east coast style trees, or if you are an ex racer, converted to powder skier, that wants a powder ski that you can actually push hard on the trail, these skis should be a very serious consideration. I gave them a five because I think that they are a nearly perfect tool for what they are made for.

What these skis are not... These skis could never be described as playful. They are stiff heavy-ish skis with serious edge bite. If you like doing butters off pillows, whirlybirds, skiing backwards etc these skis are not for you. They also are terrible in the bumps. They are just too fat and the edges interfere with each other when you try to get into a tight bump stance.

I have only skied one season on them so I cannot comment on durability. I had heard from tuners that past models had poor quality bases that were not flat from the factory. I don't know what changes have been made, but the pair I got are perfect in their construction, have flat bases and straight edges, and show minimal wear after one year.

    These skis are great for off piste tree skiing and deep powder. They also are great for heavy spring snow.

      Comments about Icelantic Shaman Skis 2013:

      Again... seems silly to ask me to write a review when I haven't even skied them yet ... so perhaps requests for reviews could be sent out by a human who attends to seasons. I skied the Nomad RKR of the same year at Wolf Creek last year as a demo set and spent the day in heaven so I'm expecting great things from these skis...not sure you can go wrong with the incredible quality of Icelantic skis I only hear shop owners rave about them too. I've spoken with people who have skied the Shamans and they loved them so can't imagine having anything but a blast his year.

          My third pair of Shamans. Incredible combination of carving ability and soft snow off piste performance. Sidecut rules!
