We just just got our second snow (dusting) of Fall and I got the snow itch bad. Went online looking for the Fischer S bound 98 and Madshus Epoch 68 skis again. I’ve been looking since last year. Google pops up a list of the S bounds and down on the bottom Skate Pro has them for $210 and free FedEx shipping. So did I bother to look here first? Nope! Ordered them first! Then looked to see if I jumped off a cliff. I didn’t see anything horrible about Skate Pro here so hopefully they will show up looking new and in one piece.

Just noticed that Varuste (Finland) seems to have new stock on Asnes skis.
Even with $70 in shipping, the prices are better than in US (the prices shown are discounted 5% because I have bought stuff there before).
Also lower prices on NNN BC at ~ $64 (will mount for $10)
And on X-Skins
For example Åsnes X-Skin Mohair, 58mm at $61 (delayed delivery, right now)
FWIW...

Varuste has big 20% sale!!

grab a new pair of skis now! I just bought the Cecilie Skog 185cm. $368 total. shipped to US/Alaska.

I was going back and forth on Ingstads, Gamme, Nansen, or Skog. went with the Skog as it fits me better and I want an all arounder...something between mt51 and ft62. and I'm not skiing flat trails with it (will use mt51 for that).

Great prices. Wish they had the Mountain Touring 51 in 205 or 210 (or I weighed less) or the waxable Amundsen (or Mountain Race 46 or 48). Dang.
