I have purchased Asnes skis from both Neptune and Sport Albert. I call Neptune first, but if they can’t perform I use Sport Albert. They both have done well for me, and I prefer an English speaking retailer. It is easy ordering from Sport Albert in English. The confirmation emails come back in Deutsch.

My day job is in purchasing so when one vendor is unresponsive, I buy from one that is.
Exactly. This is 2019. A business who doesn't care to answer their customers is simply not worth buying from.

Guys, guys...
Why pay full retail price, taxes, overseas shipping and duties when you can buy mine at half the price? ;)

Okay, I’ve purchased from Neptune, Sport Albert, and Johnny. By far the best price, and the fastest delivery came from Johnny. If I could, I would order all my skis from Johnny.

REI is stocking 4 Asnes models - it looks like they went whole-hog into the fishscale models but at least New England has its first supplier of Asnes. Very exciting news, Asnes makes great products, I'm happy to see them expanding.

Looks like we have more evangelizing to do to spread the word on the virtues of wax skis. But we have broken through the 200cm length barrier! People will be able to buy skis that can actuallly glide during kick & glide.

An image is worth a thousand word they say... there is a shot from La Cordée today. Nor a good idea to pay a visit if you are in an impulsive buying kind of mood :o
