Fischer Watea 101 Alpine Ski - 2008 BCS
Fischer made the Watea 101 Alpine Ski big mountain senders who ski fast, shred steeps, stomp big hits, and afraid to ride switch. Fischer left the Watea’s popular shape unchanged and added a new I-beam carbon-reinforced wood core to increase the ski’s stiffness and reduces its weight. The Dual-titanal layer construction give the Watea a burly flex ideal for bigger skiers or the hardest of pow chargers. The 192cm length and 101mm waist gives you a massive platform for stomping drops, strait-lining chutes, and surfing in the deep. The raised mini-swallowtail lets you smear powder turns, ride switch, and provides a slot for secure skin attachment when touring.

Me=6"1' 175lbs. I got these skis last year and spent the season on them in every condition imaginable, and outside of the worst kind of tracked out/wind hammered crud, I have yet to find a weakness for this ski. In about 80 days split between backcountry and resort, I found that it floats perfectly in all but the lightest of cold smoke pow, stomps landings easily, carves trenches the likes of which I have never experienced before, and absolutley slices and dices in steep firm snow or spring conditions. Turn initiation and release on these is like having autopilot. The flex is perfect from tip to tail, and they're even pretty decent in moguls and tight spaces, where they never feel like 192's. I just picked up another pair to stash in the closet, and hopefully soon some Dynafit FT 12's for the ultimate big ski/lightweight touring setup!
