icelantic skis: 1 ski to rule them all...

so I have a friend who is looking to buy 1 pair of skis from icelantic.

her name is Pat Stoch she is 26 years old and a intermediatre to expert skier.

she is 5'8 200 lbs and is currently deciding between

173 shaman

178 keeper

0r 181 nomad rkr

Does anyone have any input one way or the other?

I know these are mens skis, but she can handle it, any thoughts?

My vote was for the keeper, maybe a little big for everyday, but not bad. thoughts?

must be 1 of these 3 no other options.

Also, the identity of the woman involved is being protected, Matt.

For a do everything ski I would say the Keepers. I have liked the way the bigger skis have been handling everything from groomers to crud to powder. I haven't skied any of the Icelantic skis, I am not a fan of there shovel tipped skis. But many seem to like them. Unless your getting pro deal from Icelantic, you should also check out Moment skis. Awesome ski company based out of Reno, NV. I ski the Moment Nighttrains, they are similar specs to the Keeper and an awesome ski that I would recommend. Not to many people seem to be familiar with Moment Skis here in the Rockies- Check them out they are the shit!

Moment is a great company, the bibby pro is sick, I also like Praxis and ON3P. Sounds like she's getting a pro deal so Icelantic it is.

Get the icelantics, sell them, and get a pair of either obsetheds or pre-rocker gotamas. if "she can handle it" she needs a ski that skis harder the more you play harder.

nice! i guess the stick is pointing down, thus not making it a magical wand.
