Curious about Scott skis

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've noticed while surfing the web Scott skis selling in Europe. I wondered if anyone knew anything about them. Do they manufacture them or are they just rebranded? If Scott is a US company why don't they sell them here? Anyone actually ski them?

Just curious.

Scott formerly was a US-based company, but their headquarters have been relocated to Switzerland in 1998. According to their web site they just sell the skis in Yurb and sprocket rockets everywhere.
They issued a new ski redesign for next winter, I asked over at TGR

Thanks for the update, PowHog. I take it then that they do manufacture their own.

They are built in the Blizzard factory in Austria which is owned by Scott.

i have a pair of Scott XCS skis for sale: 170 cm with an interesting twist on the side cut idea. Scott has shifted the sidecut slightly ahead of the toe peice. this makes the ski come around quicker that other models with similar shapes!!!! See swap section or email me! brian

this year they're made in the fischer factory. you can tell as soon as you step on them - the are stiff with great edge hold, but also therefore unforgiving if you're not right on it. Good if you have a strong technique or are bigger/heavier, lots of work if you are smaller and lighter.
