Skis for sale

A list of skis and asking prices can be found here:

All of these skis are Fischer and were selected by me either at World Cups, World Championships, or in the Race Room at the Fischer factory in Austria. In other words, these are special skis that you can’t buy in any store.

The age of the skis ranges from 2010 – 2016 and the asking prices are reflected accordingly. All of the skis will be sold without bindings.

In terms of weight ranges, the larger skis will be good for ~145-165lbs and the smaller skis from ~120-140lbs. But it depends on the individual skis, so best to discuss on a case by case basis.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. I really like talking about this sort of thing and will be glad to help you out. Also, as noted, please feel free to pass this along to anyone else who you think would be interested.

More Casino Volunteers Needed!!

Hello everyone — We are in need of two more volunteers for the SISU casino
1) Banker Sun 14th 9:15am to 6:30pm
2) Chip runner Sun 14th  6:30pm to 3:15am
Thanks to those of you who have volunteered!
Can others get this word out to members of the various groups.
It would be great to get someone from either the Adult groups or Jackrabbits if that is possible.  I have cc’d one of the Jackrabbit coordinators on this message to see if they can put out a call to participants.  I hope someone involved with the Adult groups can also put out a call.
These funds can be used for all ENSC groups/programs.  The focus has been on equipment and facilities and I think that this applies to all groups.
