post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
To all those fischer reps hopefully in the forum:

I am looking to get my hands on a pair of fischers to demo before i buy. I am searching around but unfortunately nothing has come up yet. It seems that fischer either is limited in my area or i just am looking in the wrong places. Where can i demo these skis?

Yeah, it seems Fischer is limited in my area, too - AND I LIVE IN BC!

Earlier this season I was all set to take on some Wateas or Atuas but couldn't find them.

I emailed Fischer and asked what I had to do to demo or buy top skis from the world's biggest ski manufacturer. I was given a (short) list of Vancouver stores that sold Fischer.

I went back to those places and though other brands were almost fully represented, the Fischer stock was meagre and Watea and Atua were nowhere to be seen.

I was told by the Fischer email guy that any of those stores could order them, but...whatever.

Why is it easier to get your hands on a pair of Capitals, DP's, etc than Fischers? I guess Fischer doesn't need our money.

The good old days:

Fischer may be the biggest manufacturer when you include their cross country skis and the skis they manufacture at their facilities for other Alpine ski makers. They have never been all that big in North America but they seem to be growing in recent years. In North America, they were for a long time best known in racing circles. Jim L is a Fischer rep in Colorado. He may be able to help you.

e-mail Fischer again and ask for the contact information for the rep in your district. I beleive it is Rick Hodges. Once you get in touch with the person, they can tell you who demos their stuff or if there is a demo day coming up. Fischer was at Hunters demo day in late December, and Windham a week later.

Good luck,

Scott
