Want to demo Fisher, Tahoe

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know Fischer's plans for demo days in Tahoe area? Want to demo AMC series, can't find any shop who demos Fischer : .... Frustrating!

Thanks,

Tahoe Boot and Ski Works in the Gondola village at Heavenly (across from the ice rink and next to the movie theater) demo Fischer.

I demoed the AMC76 from them last season.

Also, if you're in the SF Bay Area, California Ski Company in Berkeley demoes Fischer, as well.

Here's their website: http://tahoebootnbike.com/

Nice folks, too.

I went there in January of last season to get bootfit, but they didn't end up having any boots in my size. But they were totally cool and ended up tweaking the boots I bought elsewhere for free (stuck in a couple of heel lifters).

They tend to be more race oriented (I'm more a halfway cause between racing and freeriding), but I would imagine they still have the Fischer AMC series available for demo.

Also, did you use the Dealer Locator on the Fischer site: http://www.fischerskis.com/en/

I actually look at Tahoe Boot and Bike site before - they do not mention Fischer at all... Anyway, I've sent them e-mail asking if they do have it this year.

Everybody sells them - nobody demos!

Thanks again,

http://www.footloosesports.com/ at Mammoth would be another alternative if you are headed that way.

I have AMC 79 (170,176) AMC 76 (170) RX9 (175)

Just off I-80 in Sac-a-tomatoes. Call after Noon on Friday to reserve.

Come up to Bachelor-we stock the 79 for demo. Lots of snow too! The AMC stuff skis light, and reminds me of the current Salomon product. They are fun skis, and very forgiving, but don't have the highest speed limit or the beef to hold up under heavier skier (that has been our shop opinion, at least). I liked them, but am only 150lbs.

Sorry, didn't mean you had to call on that Friday. You can reserve any Friday (or any other day) by calling after 12:00 for a pickup that evening.

You also might try Elite Feet at the Resort at Squaw Creek. I know they sell Fischers.
