Fischer S-Bound 98 Update

Warm spring snow is the sweet spot for Fischer's S-Bound 98 waxless ski.  Skiing the Fischer 98 on our Anchorage spring snow pack with an inch of fresh, wet snow is a delight.  The glide is a little slow, but the climbing ability of makes these skis work exceptionally well in warm conditions.  My 98's are mated with a vintage telemark system, Riva 2 cable bindings and two-buckle Scarpa T2 boots.  The Fischer 98 combination with the light, plastic boot is a good match of power and weight.
