It's almost abnormal not to see skiers and boarders zooming through the trees while their favorite tunes blast from their helmet sound systems or earbuds. Recently, Colorado-based ski company Icelantic  teamed up with John Denver 's estate to make that audio experience more visual: Powderhounds can now bring the music legend along for the ride.
Icelantic's new John Denver Nomad ski features images of the iconic singer-songwriter on the tip and tail. The limited-edition product is a one-ski quiver (translation: it has the ability to handle all snow conditions, from fluffy powder to just skiffs of snow). While the skis will get the job done, it's the detailing by PARR , the artist responsible for the John Denver design, that makes the gear irresistible to "Rocky Mountain High " fans. PARR blended an image of the shaggy-haired performer and his signature "JD snowflake" with Icelantic's free-flowing style.
The $699 skis  are available in three sizes: 161, 171, and 181. Orders are being accepted now on Icelantic's website. The downfall: The planks won't ship until mid-February. But they'll arrive in time to coincide with the final stop on the John Denver: A Rocky Mountain High Concert tour, February 23 at the Paramount Theatre  in Denver.
