Jenn is looking for advice on purchasing skate skis:
I’m getting ready for the ski season and plan to buy new skate skis…and looking for advice from fellow skiers.
During the winter I skate ski 2-3x/wk approx. 20-40km/wk. I’ve been skate skiing for about 7 or 8 years but always happily recreational. I’ve only ever bought used skate skis. My current skis-Madshus-have been great performance wise but have had some structural failure-cracks along the sides exposing the foam core, not sure how much longer they will last….hence looking for new skis.
My local ski shop has recommended 3 types of skis for my intermediate skiing:
Each of these increasing in price by about $100. I don’t want to blow the budget but also want to get quality, responsive, durable, efficient skis (and due to previous experience I feel I am shying away from the Madshus).
Has anyone had experience with these skis? Favourites? Any others I should be looking at? How about the Fisher CRS and the Rossi Delta Comp sold at MEC at similar price points?
Thanks all! Any advice is greatly appreciated-I’m excited to get out there and be on the snow again!
