Skis

  Let's face it - today's race skis are light years better than they were a decade ago. Better manufacturing and quality controls have made the overall ski quality much, much higher.  But the key to finding a great ski is still fit. Yes - some high-end skis differ only slightly.  But some differ greatly.  Different cambers, molds, and profiles suit different snow conditions.  IT'S ABOUT THE FIT.  The ski needs to give the skier what they want whether it be stability, float, speed, or control.  We work with you to determine what attributes your new ski needs in order to give you what you want.  Once we've made a choice we back it up.  If that ski doesn't deliver - bring it back.  We want fast AND happy skiers out there.  Let's find you a new ski.....

Featured Nordic Skis

Fischer
RCS Classic Zero
$359.00 SALE!
$449.00
$529.00 MSRP
The perfect ski for days right at the freezing mark. Consistent kick on wet or glazed tracks...and fast glide too! A must have for the serious classic skier. But please don't think of the zero as a one-trick pony. They do work across a wide range of snow conditions. A great time saver when you don't have time to wax the fast pair.

Salomon
S-Lab Skate Ski
$599.00
$649.00 MSRP

Cool new graphics for the S-Lab skis for 2014. Salomon now waxes the skis at the factory immediately after stone grinding. That makes for a cleaner and potentially faster ski right off the rack. And a nice thing for us shop folks - they add a thin foil over the wax so we can test them without having to scrape and brush!

RSC Classic 10/11 (plus/cold)
$250.00 SALE!
$439.95
$499.95 MSRP
The good old RCS gets a graphics facelift across the board for 2010/2011. But remains the exact same ski structurally that it has been for years. Fischer's 812 camber gives these skis the perfect combination of kick and glide.

Fischer

RCS Carbonlite Classic 10/11
$299.00 SALE!

I'm sure a lot of you already have an opinion concerning Fischer's "812" camber. Opinion's run from love to hate. In my opinion - If this ski is fit correctly to the skier - they will love it! Unparalleled combination of grip and glide. Size it too soft and it will be catchy on descents. Size it too stiff and no kick. Yes - a tricky ski to fit. We are confident that we have figured out the perfect test results needed to properly fit this ski. I've sold alot of them and the users have been unanimously overjoyed with the ski's performance. We've also found that Fischer's recomendations for proper flex have been right on. But must be within 2 kg of perfection. The wax pocket on these skis tends to be short, ride high, and kick easy. The skier needs to be respectful of the shorter wax pocket. Many have tended to over wax (too far up the tip) this ski and returned claiming poor glide. We cleaned the base, re-glide waxed the tip, showed them what we did and sent them out. PRESTO! Perfect kick and glide. Skihut stocks "cold" base.

Fischer
RCS Carbonlite Hole Skate Ski 10/11
$325.00 SALE!
$599.95
$599.95 MSRP
OK. It may seem a bit silly to you. But think about it. This ski is 5 grams lighter at the tip. That translates into a lot of swing weight you don't have to deal with during the course of a race. Think about every time you go to bring your leg back under your body while skating. There is always a "pendulum motion". The ski tip and tail swing slightly with each stride. Your body has to fight that motion in order to keep going in a straight line. You are wasting energy. The less that ski swings - the less energy you use to correct it - the more likely you will be to take the sprint or launch a crushing attack. I've seen other companies - and other shops - taking cheap shots at the Hole Ski. Let 'em. Fact is: This ski is light, fast, and effective. Duluthian and Team Fischer/Craft athlete Adam Swank proved that at the California Gold rush. Winning the event in a blizzard that dumped 8" of new snow. On this ski. He was amazed at how easily it sliced through the fresh snow. And, wouldn't you know it, he won it in the sprint! The Hole Ski is currently available in Cold and Plus base. The full range of stiff and medium flexes are also available. AND - available with or without the NIS plate.

Fischer
Carbonlite Hole Skate
$479.00 SALE!
$625.00
$625.00 MSRP
Back in black. No structural changes for Fischer's flagship model skate ski. Just a "hole" lot more medals to brag about! 2011 Nordic Worlds in Oslo were Fischer's most dominant championships ever and this ski was everywhere. I was there,trust me, everyone used the hole ski. SKIHUT HAS THE HOLE SKI AVAILABLE FOR DEMO!! Come in, get fitted and take them skiing for a day or two. Carbonlite boots and poles too! Available in Plus or Cold base AND Soft Track flex.

Fischer
Speedmax Classic
$699.95
$699.95 MSRP
Fischer's new Speedmax Classic promises to set a new standard in ski quality. Fischer's new Cold Bonded base allows for never before seen quality control. This means even more great skis (not just good skis) from Fischer! 902 camber. Plus base. NIS. AVAILABLE FOR DEMO.

Fischer
SpeedMax Skate
$699.95
$699.95 MSRP
Fischer is again pushing the production envelope. In their ongoing pursuit of race ski perfection the new SpeedMax is a giant leap forward. By "Cold Bonding" the base to the core Fischer can more accurately control how the ski flexes. Thereby producing a much higher percentage of "good" or,in this case,"great" skis. The new base also seems to accept and hold wax better making for inherently faster skis. 610 mold. Plus base. NIS. AVAILABLE FOR DEMO.

Salomon
Equipe 10 lab Skate
$349.00 SALE!
$499.95
$549.95 MSRP
No structural changes for the Lab 10 for 11/12. But Salomon has tightened up the flex parameters on these skis. After flexing several pairs I've noticed an improvement in the flex consistency of these skis. The flex characteristics are impressive. Soft Ground also in stock.

Salomon
Equipe 10 Lab Classic
$349.00 SALE!
$499.99
$550.00 MSRP
This classic ski has really impressed our customers. With Salomon's "heel-toe" camber this ski rides high (so you glide fast - but your wax doesn't wear off) but kicks easy. The Lab 10 Classic has probably the most forgiving wax pocket of all high-end kick skis. Meaning it fits a relatively wide range of skier weights. A Nomex core for lightweight durability. Salomon's Zeolite base for easy wax absorbtion and innate glide speed. And a slight sidecut for enhanced downhill stability.

Salomon
S-Lab Skate Ski
$599.00
$649.00 MSRP
Cool new graphics for the S-Lab skis for 2014. Salomon now waxes the skis at the factory immediately after stone grinding. That makes for a cleaner and potentially faster ski right off the rack. And a nice thing for us shop folks - they add a thin foil over the wax so we can test them without having to scrape and brush!
