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.
