I just received a catalog from INTERSPORT in Austria. Despite the crappy exchange rate between the dollar and the euro, Fischer, Atomic, and Head skis are still between $100 and $350 cheaper than they are selling at my local ski stores. Buying skis in Austria could just about cover a cheap airfare to Europe. The Austrian VAT is refundable at the airport and most of the cost of a new pair of skis would fall under the $800 US Duty exemption for US air travelers. Intersport also has demo centers at most of the major resorts.
