Fischer will introduce the world’s first twin-tip skate ski, The Jibskate, designed specifically for terrain parks at West Yellowstone’s Thanksgiving Ski Festival. Last year in W. Yellowstone Fischer created a small terrain area behind their demo tent and had several pairs of prototype Jibskates. The Jibskates were a big hit with the kids (and more than a few adults) and this year Fischer will take their Jibskate demo to a whole new level.
Doug Edgerton, West Yellowstone’s renowned groomer, created a Nordic terrain park at the new Rendezvous trailhead. The BMX style terrain park, built this fall from dirt, includes a start ramp, two tabletop jumps, several rollers, and a banked turn. The park will have snow making on it to ensure good features as well as lighting for night use. Fischer will have two fun-box style rails to jib and a large demo fleet of the market-ready Jibskates (hit shops in early December) to demo. The Jibskates will come in three sizes (151cm, 161cm, 171cm) with each size featuring its own freestyle-inspired color scheme.
Got skills? West Yellowstone will be the first chance to see the Jibskate’s new graphics (on top and bottom) and test them out by busting your sickest tricks in the park. There will be a very limited number of the new Jibskates for sale at the event.
