    Chamonix Skis - Do they suck?

    I've never heard of this brand of ski, and there is virtually zero information online about these outside of a few reddit comments that aren't very helpful.

    https://www.the-house.com/8969chboch20zz-chamonix-skis

    This website has a Bochard 92 and Dominion 83 listed.

    I'm looking for rock skis/skis to lend to friends and with Black Friday coupons they come out to a whopping $150 new, my morbid curiosity will likely make me give them a shot.

    Has anyone given these suckers a try or heard anything about the brand?

    Your no- good friends should stop freeloading and just get those $150 skis themselves.

    If you have to name your skis after a world-class resort, they are at the very least, suspect.

    This is why they're getting treated to shitty skis with 10 yo demo binders .

    So does Bochard mean "rental" in French?
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    no. Seems to be the name of a ski-lift in Cham.

    my suggestion: take you 150 bucks to the sales board and get some used skis.

    Especially when they're based in MN.
