The Fischer Watea 88 is a perfect ski for the advanced skier who will spend some time on the groomers, and most of their time off trail seeking out powder, skiing in the trees, or charging in the bowls. The Watea 88 has Freeski Rocker that has rocker in the tip, camber underfoot, and rocker in the tail. Tip rocker will help you float in the pow, smooth out the ride when things get crudded up, and engage the ski quicker on the groomers. Camber underfoot will keep you stable on the hard pack, and give you rebound for the times you feel like blasting a groomer. Tail rocker will release you out of a turn effortlessly, and help you smear turns when things get deep. At 88 mm underfoot you get great floatation when you get some snow, but still be able to turn and lay down some carves. The Sandwich Sidewall Construction with a wood core gives you some rebound, torsional strength, and great edge grip on firm snow. The Carbon Tech Construction of the Watea 88 has a network of carbon fibers that have torsional power and balanced stiffness and is lighter than other materials to keep the weight down of the ski, for a lighter, but powerful feel. If you are looking for a versatile ski that excels off the trial, and can ski easily on the groomers the Fischer Watea 88 will be a great ski for you.

2013 Fischer Watea 88 Ski Review

By Trey R.

from Boyne Mountain

Staff Reviewer

Comments about Fischer Watea 88 Skis:

Hi this is Trey. I just got off of the new Watea 88 from Fischer Skies. I'm going to give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. I've always liked this ski and I like it just as much maybe even better this year. It's an excellent ski for a solid intermediate all the way up to even a casual expert skier. Very quick and light underfoot. Great edge hold. It's playful yet stable at the same. It's got an amazing graphic this year. I think this ski just rocks so 5 out of 5 stars.

2013 Fischer Watea 88 Ski Review

Comments about Fischer Watea 88 Skis:

Hi Thom here with the Fischer Watea 88. This is a 5 out of 5 ski for me. Real positive engagement. Hooks up early, hooks up fast. Hooks up with power. Gets into edge it's stable. Short radius long radius it's no problem. Just a really fun snappy lively ski. It's got a lot of energy, a lot of life but it's not a ski you have to fight with. So for your beginning intermediate that is really looking for a game changer type ski or your advanced skier that spends most of their time on hardpack and dables in soft snow and bumps you're going to find a really verastile, well rounded ski in this.

2013 Fischer Watea 88 Ski Review

By Sean M.

from Boyne Mountain

Staff Reviewer

Comments about Fischer Watea 88 Skis:

Hey this is Sean here I just got done skiing the Fischer Watea 88 ski. I give this ski a 3 out of 5 starts. It's going to be geared towards that advanced intermediate to advanced skiier. The thing I liked about this ski was that it could bust through the crud on the mountain, nice and easy and it was a great at short turns. The things I didn't kind of like on it were at fast speeds and long turn is where it got a little chattery at those higher speeds. All in all it was a fun ride. I give this ski a 3 out of 5 stars.

2013 Fischer Watea 88 Ski Review

Staff Reviewer

Comments about Fischer Watea 88 Skis:

Hey this is Luke with Fischers Watea 88. I give this ski 3.5 out of 5 stars. I found it to be great at making some nice longer turns. It chatters a little bit on harder snow when you try to arch some smaller turns. It's dfiniitley a ski geared toward your upper intermediate to advanced level skiers. Fairly light weight and just a solid all mountain ski.

2013 Fischer Watea 88 Ski Review

By Brad K.

Staff Reviewer

Comments about Fischer Watea 88 Skis:

Hi I'm Brad. I just got off the Fischer Watea This ski gets a 4 out of 5 for me. It was definitely solid underfoot. Liked the longer turns, liked the shorter, it was very predictable, very mellow. Just a nice great ski to kind of do it all. Definitely stable underfoot. If you're a guy who wants to really drive a ski and really hold and edge it did fairly well there. Didn't have a ton of pop from turn to turn but kind of a different great all mountain cruiser. It would definitely help an advanced intermediate to kind of take their skiing to the next level.

      A:

      Since we are currently sold out of the Watea 88 we cannot give you an exact weight at this time and Fischer does not provide any information about ski weight for us to pass on to you.
