Megan here! I skated my first 50k Ski Marathon this year at the Noquemenon. Like Jessica, I began skiing on entry level skis - Fischer CRS skis selected by Doc for their race-like performance and affordable price-point. I love my skis but the base is not constructed to hold wax for that many kilometers of skiing.
I selected a
with perfect flex and took them on a test run at Iola Sports Center in Waupaca. I’m a beginner. I had been skate skiing for a season and a half. I worried I wouldn’t notice a big difference between the Fischer CRS and Rossi Xium. In just one blue loop, however, I had two immediate conclusions.
