The Watea 101 is big, bad, burly, and ready for the deep, in-bounds or in the backcountry.
Fischer made the Watea 101 Alpine Ski big mountain senders who ski fast, shred steeps, stomp big hits, and afraid to ride switch. Fischer left the Watea’s popular shape unchanged and added a new I-beam carbon-reinforced wood core to increase the ski’s stiffness and reduces its weight. The Dual-titanal layer construction give the Watea a burly flex ideal for bigger skiers or the hardest of pow chargers. The 192cm length and 101mm waist gives you a massive platform for stomping drops, strait-lining chutes, and surfing in the deep. The raised mini-swallowtail lets you smear powder turns, ride switch, and provides a slot for secure skin attachment when touring.
Got a pair of 192 cm Watea 101s from Tramdock for $330, mounted them with BD O2 bindings and they've been a great in-between ski between my Work Stinx 181s (general workhorse) and BD Megawatts (best in >1 foot)
192 means they're not the fastest to turn, but they work great for 8-16" days where they float on the new snow and RAIL through long, arcing turns. stable for straight-lining and landings. Harder work to turn on hardpack, but that's understandable given the 192 length
