The folks at Fischer are excited about the upcoming Fall Camp at West Yellowstone. This year, they want to try something a little different and hopefully a little better when it comes to demoing skis at West Yellowstone. Fischer will be fitting and handing out demo skis and boots at the Expo Center at the Holiday Inn the night before each demo. The idea behind this is simple. Fischer’s Peter Ashley claims, “We are doing this for three reasons. One, this will give us a chance to have a better feeling for the skiers, how strong they are and their level of skiing. This will be best for fitting the right length and flex. Also, this will be a better setting for us to discuss our new products and their technology. Outside, in the cold, a skier who was a little sweaty after a long ski would start to shiver when we began talking about new product. Third reason, we are really excited about our new boots. Inside the demo center is a much better place to try on boots and pick the right ones for testing as opposed to the trailhead.
What will the folks from Fischer bring to West Yellowstone this year? Their new Speedmax Skate and Classic skis which dominated last year’s World Championships. The SPEEDMAX construction uses a unique process called Cold Base Bonding, which eliminates heat and pressure when attaching the base to the ski. This process will produce greater speed and wax retention, check out the video:
They will also be the most forgiving and stable skis you have ever demoed. Fischer will be handing out their new Carbonlite boots with the Xcelerator soles and Triple – F membrane. Testers will be impressed with the combination of comfort and performance.
