This is a letter we received from our friend and fellow First Tracker, Chad Fox who, as you can see, decided to follow a lifelong dream of his to wake up and ski steep, deep powder all day, every day at one of the world’s greatest mountains.  Yup.

Whenever one of us gets a note like this, it’s shared throughout our community, with smiles and fist pumps all around. We often print these out and hang them up so that we're reminded and inspired by our First Tracks community every day.

This is what fuels our fire and is a big reason for why we do what we do. 

Now, before you go thinking that Icelantic is encouraging you to quit your job and go skiing...   

As First Trackers just like Chad, you have been an integral part in the feel and formation of Icelantic for the past 8 years.  From skiing chest deep pow together on the annual First Tracks trip...which many of you have said was the best ski trip of your lives - to having open dialogue between Icelantic and our community has allowed us to shape the theme, the art, and the products we bring to the skiing community at large...

Your perspective, input, and presence as an incredible First Tracks community has contributed to what we are today - which is a pretty cool place. 

And this, my friend, is the reason we created First Tracks. 

First Tracks is our answer to traffic jams, deadlines, the hustle and bustle of life, and a way to help our community tap into the freedom and lifestyle that we all love.

Over the past 4 years, Icelantic’s First Tracks has evolved into the most amazing community of people that we’ve encountered to date.  From FBI Agents to Schoolteachers, bankers to professional skiers, this un-assuming group of characters from all over the world has committed to living life like it’s meant to be lived, and are all united by that tiny, magical thread we know as skiing. Out of our little community there has even been a marriage...

When we asked a select group of First Tracker's what their favorite memories were, here are just a few:

  • "That time we got lost, then cliffed out, then miraculously survived an expedition in the sidecountry of Steamboat where Ben had to ski out on one ski"

  • Standing by while Icelantic team riders Juilian Carr, Owen Leeper, and Scotty Vermerris went one after another flipping, twisting, and flying through the air while the people on the chairlift sat in awe and cheered

  • Discovering a wild animal, the native Powder Hound who is a cross between a bear and a yeti, rumoured to live in the pillows of the back woods...known to the locals only as "the Kirn"

  • "My feeble attempt to keep up with Icelantic team rider Rebecca Selig as she took tight steep turns yelling 'Yeeeehaw' like a crazy cowgirl"

  • Making new friends for life over early chairlift rides, long hikes to new peaks, and unforgettable, once in a lifetime powder lines

  • Discovering previously unknown powder stashes in the Utah wilderness

  • Eating the dust of First Tracker original "JT" while he stomped his way through 3 feet of new fresh powder

  • Taking gigantic "Super-G" turns that would make Lindsay Vonn jealous down the steep and deep of Highlands bowl

  • Spending countless hours soaking with new friends in hot tubs full of beautiful souls, cold beers, and great stories

  • "Discovering a newfound invigoration and infatuation with life itself, so much that I quit my job to go skiing..."

  • Fell in love with life again

  • Created Memories that will last a lifetime

  • Sat around the fire with Founder Ben Anderson telling stories and laughing until we cried

  • Ate copious amounts of amazing mexican food while singing happy birthday to Annelise

  • Watched Scotty do flips off of snow pillows and cliffs...and then followed him into the air

  • Skied the most amazing powder line of my life, dropping off of 13 foot pillows with effortless ease

  • After a giant powder dump was floating swiftly and silently on my Shamans through the trees with tears of joy in my eye

  • Rediscovered the meaning of skiing in my life and why Icelantic's community is so special

  • Made new ski buddies from all around the globe

  • Met a ski bunny or two ;-)

Only Icelantic's First Tracks lets you...

Ski With Your Heroes
Meet New Friends
And Make Memories Forever

Like light fluffy powder on a brand new day, access to First Tracks is fleeting and only for those who are willing to get up and move, and get after what they really want. It's not for someone sitting around dreaming of the next big powder day - it's for the select few who are willing to get up to the mountain and take some action to get your freshies. First Tracks is a community of passionate people who dream big, and then take decisive action to make their dreams into a reality.

If this describes you even a little bit, then you're going to love what we reveal next.

We’ve created a way for you to come along and be a part of the adventure with us, no matter where you live, no matter your occupation, and no matter your age.  All that matters is that you share the passion for a bigger, better life, higher peaks, more powder, and more adventure.  All that matters is you want to come along and be a part of the worldwide Icelantic community of passionate skiers and snowboarders who are growing in numbers every single day.

There is one catch.  Before we show you how you can be a part of First Tracks, we have to warn you – First Tracks is not for everyone.

First Tracks is not for you if you’re not passionate about the sport.  First Tracks is not for you if you don’t want to participate in the activities we just told you about.  First Tracks not for you if all you’re doing is looking for a date with a ski bunny (though we will admit that its been known to be a nice side benefit).

First Tracks IS FOR YOU if you’re a passionate, action taking person.  First Tracks is for you if you believe in FREEDOM and evolution and exploration, and going to higher realms.  First Tracks is for you if you love the mountains, love adventure, and love meeting new people and having new experiences. 

First Tracks is for YOU...

What People Are Saying About First Tracks

"...fuels my snow addiction..."

“First Tracks is what I'm excited about first thing in the morning, its like my morning cup of coffee.

The constant stream of stoke from everyone around the world fuels my snow addiction even when the weather isn't so cooperative here on the East Coast or I'm trapped in the office at my desk job.”

- Ryan Gibbs

“Still getting to know First Tracks but what I like so far is there doesn't seem to be an unannounced agenda it truly is a group of folks who like to ski and would love do do turns with anyone else who wants an adventure.”

- Donna Marts

"...a sense of brotherhood"

“It's more than just being a part of a company, it gives you a sense of brotherhood and it really makes the case that skiing is more than a sport...it really is a lifestyle.”

- Dave Hernden

"...sort of a secret club..."

To tell you the truth, I haven't really explained it to anyone outside of the FT community. I kind of like that it's like a sort of secret club... Sort of a "Powder Fraternity (Sorority).

- Anonymous First Tracks Member

"I love being able to share the passion and enthusiasm..."

I really enjoy meeting new like-minded individuals, both from a professional and personal/social perspective.

It's really cool to expand the proverbial circles. I love being able to share the passion and enthusiasm with people that are as passionate and excited about the snow sports industry as I am.

- Dave Jones

"Can't wait to make more memories..."

I'm really excited for another First Tracks season. From slapping the bag in ALTA, exploring bad ass secrect stashes, meeting everyone from FBI agents, Irish police, and of course KIRN... I can't wait to make more memories and First Tracks friends this year.

- Brian Pavlak
