Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that I got in touch with Matt Berkowitz who is the North American freeride manager for Fischer. Though it is true in Europe, and it sucks for our bretheren over there, it is NOT true over here in North America.
Here is a quote: "Fischer Europe has dropped their Team, that much is true. However, part of that decision had to do with Fischer focusing attention to the Freeskiing markets that are more important such as North America, France and Scandinavia. We are still fully involved in the freeski market here in the USA and will continue to grow our team and produce award winning Slopestyle and Freeride skis."
Still bad news for the boys over the pond, but I wanted to make sure we had all the facts before passing judgement.
