The 2011 Icelantic Keeper Skis is a brand new ski from Icelantic and at 119mm in the waist it is their widest waisted ski in the line up. The Icelantic Keeper was a more versatile ski than I thought it was going to be. It is geared more towards powder days but thanks to a tight turn radius they will ski very well on groomed slopes as well. They want to stay charging down the fall line and are great for skiing the side of the trail hard. Like all Icelantic skis the Keeper has no problem keeping an edge on firm snow and at high speeds. If you want a versatile powder ski the Icelantic Keeper would be a great choice for you. They do ski short so do not size down in this ski you will want all the length that you feel comfortable with.
