    Elan Wingman or Other East Coast Skis for Heavyweight Adult

    Hi! I have read posts on Pugski for over a month, and have seen some Pugskis stickers on lift towers, but this is my first thread here. I'm 26, 5' 10" and now 240 lbs. I consider myself to be an East Coast expert skier and an advanced skier at Jackson Hole. I ski glades, moguls, and groomers...

    Fischer ranger 107 thoughts

    Would it be crazy to put a shift binding on the Fischer Ranger 107 TI ski for side county/short tours? I have a lighter setup for longer tours and a health quiver of resort skis. I was thinking the 189(but possibly the 182) length with a shift might be a good travel setup as well, seems like it...

    Anybody speak Fischer race code?

    Anyone who knows the Fischer race code meanings? For example what does the code in picture mean in terms of stiffness etc? These same marking is in the tails of Fischer WC SL skis. And both skis do have the same "mistake" of 1 stamped on top of a 6. Can this be a mistake? Is there some place...

    If you were allowed quivers from only one ski manufacturer, what would you choose?

    I think either Blister or Ski Essentials does this with their reviews so I t hought it might be fun to see how folks here would pick for a one, two or three ski quiver if limited to a single manufacturer. I picked a few of the sponsors here and added Rossignol because, well, I love Rossignol. :)...

    Cage Match Comparison 2020 Fischer RC One GT 86 Multiflex vs 2020 Salomon S/Force Bold

    Here is the Cage Match I have had more than a few requests for, the Fischer RC One GT Multiflex and the Salomon S/Force Bold, two new skis that have been the topics of many preseason discussions. Honestly, I think it is a Cage Match that is going to disappoint many here in that these skis are...

    Comparison Review An intermediate oompa-loompa's comparison: Head Rally vs Fischer The Curv GT

    I've had the chance to A/B these skis in the last week, in Australian early season conditions - mostly man-made snow, firm, fast early morning pistes deteriorating quickly with the dense crowds to choppy slop or push piles on a hard base. The Head Rally's are huge fun and so carvy on the early...

    Comparison Review Thumbnail Reviews from the Not-on-Mother's-Day Gathering at A-Basin

    It appears that all the insider Pugs have been given the green light by the Powers That Be to let loose with their reviews of 2020 model year skis, so I figured I'd pile on with some quick notes on skis Phil and Tricia were nice enough to lay out in Colorado a few weeks ago. Conditions: I would...

    Business simulation

    You have an opportunity to sell brand new skis and ski boots to the beginner market. In the past you have sold Elan, Fischer and Alpina. Going forward Elan probably still makes good business sense, maybe even Fischer of skis too. What would you do for boots? How many brands would you carry...

    Fischer 2019/2020 Demo Dec 6

    I got to ski next year's skis with ski legend and Fischer product manager Mike Hattrup at Stowe Mountain Resort. Conditions were a few inched of dust on a couple day old crust. Pretty decent skiing, but a little noisy some places. Bumps were January firm, with just a bit more dust on them...
