Fischer dealers in Colorado?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Does anybody know who carries Fischer skis in Colorado?
Front range or along I-70 preferred.
Thanks!

Call Eskimo Ski Shop. They have in the past, but they don't have much of a website so it's hard to know.

Thanks for the replies.

I tried Eskimo a couple weeks ago. They are not carrying Fischer this year.

The dealer locater on the Fischer site claims that almost every ski shop in Colorado carries them, which I have found to be incorrect.

Are you looking for something in particular? I dropped by today, Eskimo does have a pair of 182 Motive 86s if anyone is interested. :-)

Seg,

Thank you! That was super nice of you.

They had the same pair when I was in a couple weeks ago.

When I went in, I thought that's what I wanted, but the guy convinced me that those might not be my best choice in the bumps.

I'd like to try some rangers.

Ideally, I would find a place to demo.

My ''buy 'em and try 'em" demo plan has historically been pretty expensive.

Thanks again!

Hmmm. I would wait for next year's Rangers, which you can't demo yet anyway (well, that's not totally true, but at random dealers probably is). I didn't ski them, but everyone I know who tried them at SIA liked them; my friend who used to compete freestyle/moguls in the 80s (and still loves skiing bumps) really loved the women's 98 version at SIA this past month. 

 

SPeaking of bumps, Eskimo does have several pairs of The Ski for $495 ... 175, 180, and 185. Also some 165 I think.

I like the current ranger MUCH more than the new Ranger in bumps.  The new one had a really stiff tip, lots of rocker, felt really weird with lots of push back. The current one is so smooth, one of the best all-mountain skis in bumps I have ever tried.  In other conditions, I think the new Ranger is a little better, but I wouldn't say that in bumps. You can't go wrong with the current ski there.
