The ski resorts in Idaho aren't open quite yet, but powder hounds in the Treasure Valley are gearing up for when the snow starts flying. Starting the season with a fresh set of planks is enough to get anyone dreaming of powder days, and The Boise Gear Collective has just what the doctor ordered. Among a wide swath of used skis (complete with bindings), are Icelantic skis, which Boise's proprietor of used outdoor gear is selling brand new. Icelantic is a Denver-based ski company that produces all of its skis here in the U.S. The skis are available in a variety of widths, fit to conquer any sort of terrain, pleasing both the park rat and the burley backcountry skier. The company was started as a passion project between a group of friends and has blossomed into a full-scale operation. All of the skis also come with artwork from Icelantic Art Director Travis Parr.
