We are a Fischer Race and Demo Center, an Atomic and Salomon Race and Demo Center and a Rossignol Touring and Demo center. A great ski to try today would be the Atomic Motion waxable classic ski. These temperatures are easy to wax for and the result is practically effortless skiing. The “March Madness, aka! Labor Day Sale” is in full swing.
