Testing skis so you don't have to.
- Mar 5, 2017
Tricia: Fischer is one brand that is steering away from women’s-specific skis, but it is offering skis in a variety of lengths and flex patterns with some “women suggested” skis in the lineup. The 82 GT WS is such a ski. I had it for a thoroughly enjoyable long-term test. The calmness in this ski encourages you to do a little more and go a little faster. Groomers are glorious and moguls are marvelous. Ducking into trees doesn’t need a second thought. After spending a fair amount of time on a variety of terrain on the RC One 82 GT, I can confidently encourage women who are advancing skiers to think no more. Get One … the RC One.
