I have been reading about them and they get great reviews- any comments? I know they make the best plates on the WC.

VIST skis

I sell the skis in Calgary and skied the RC and GS last year. Immediately decided to start selling them. In May demoed the RC to two friends and each bought a pair. The skis are sensational. Easy Easy to ski with nice round turns and lots of edge hold. Highly recommended!

Hi Louis,
I´m glad we agree on the skis.
I´ll send a Calgary friend of ours to your shop!

I had some on some Nordica Beast 74TTs a couple years ago. They were solidly built and worked fine. I wouldn't hesitate to own another pair.

Vist skis are made in Italy at the Persenico factory- same as used by Spalding (Squadra Corse race skis)

I hope some mountains have them at demo days but I know that is asking too much.

They can't even get Ogasaka and Stockli at those damn things.

Lou -

I saw a post that you sell Vist skis out of Calgary.
I've been looking for the Vist Cross-Over II...
Is this something you have in stock or can source?

I don't have the ski here but can almost certainly get it.  Best thing is to contact me at (403) 288-8556 or lou@lous.ca

For info on Vist skis contact Tom Maneggia He's the U.S. Vist ski rep and is located in Stratton Mountain, VT.  Tom also has a ski shop there in Stratton Mountain:  Norse House Ski & Sport @  802-366-0337.  Tom has been great to work with!!!  Highly recommend!!!

Skis are being shipped this week from Italy and will be here before end of September.  I just ordered the Cross-Over II.  Can't wait!!!

I've also dealt with Tom and he really knows and is passionate about the Vist line...also gave me some great summer time deals on some Vist clothing which I love.

I will be visiting Tom soon enough to demo a couple pairs of Vist skis, although a bit of a hike from my home at Mt Snow.

When buying from Tom, make sure you are clear regarding all the costs. I was very surprised when I received my CC statement. I tried to contact him after to clarify why I was charged more than I originally quoted, I never received a response. 

If you are looking for Vist skis (actually "Blossom"), try Hart, other than the skis over 90mm, they are the exact same as Vist, just different graphics and more reasonably priced.
