New Sleds

fischer carbonlite skate classic hole ski

My new race skis arrived, thanks to Caldwell Sport.

  • Fischer CarbonLite Classic 202cm
  • Fischer CarbonLite Skate 192cm

The last pair of skis that Zach picked for me were like rocketships.  These should be even better since they were hand selected from the race room at Fischer in Austria.

These skis were stoneground for cold/universal conditions. My previous race skis were redone with a warm grind.  I can’t claim that I fully understand all the nuances of grinds, waxes, topcoats and rill patterns, but I’ve managed to have pretty fast skis some of the time.  My extended fleet will give me more precision in selecting the right ski for the day’s conditions…and a better chance to screw it up if I get it wrong

Now all I need is some snow…
