FirstBank partnered with Never Summer Industries and Icelantic, two
renowned Colorado-based manufacturers, to create the limited-edition
FirstBank snowboard and skis. The Predator Series features a 3D wild
animal Matroyshka graphic including wolf, bobcat, raccoon, and owl
nesting dolls. The snowboard utilizes Never Summer’s patented R.C.
(Rocker & Camber) technology for better edge-hold and stability. The
Icelantic Nomad skis feature balanced flex, 2mm of camber underfoot, and
a rockered tip and tail for the perfect all-mountain freeride ski.
