Ski Service

George Fisher is the only retail shop in the Lake District to have a Wintersteiger stone grinder, the world’s number one brand. Our ski technicians have completed technical training courses in the use of the Wintersteiger machine, allowing them to carry out all sorts of ski repairs & servicing.

Equipment Hire

At George Fisher, we like to ensure that everybody is properly equipped. To help you to have a safe day out on the fells you can hire Walking Boots and Child Carriers

Adult's Boots - £15 per Week
Children's Boots - £10 / Week
Child Carriers - £15 per Week

Prior reservation is not necessary but we do recommend it during school holidays & Bank Holidays. You can email or 'phone beforehand to avoid disappointment.

Waterproof Testing

We have a sophisticated hydrostatic head testing machine capable of replicating water pressures far in excess of anything you're likely to encounter outdoors. Unless we're very busy in store you can watch us test your waterproof while you wait - it doesn't even have to have been bought from us.

Customer Feedback

Your comments

... Not only was the price for the [Osprey rucksack] excellent, it arrived quicker than I expected from a free delivery service.

I would certainly shop through your website again, and will recommend that others do as well.

Thanks again, DM (Leeds) 8/2/12

 

Thank you for the excellent service (as ever!) in replacing my faulty jacket - much appreciated.

Why people shop anywhere but Fisher's is beyond me!
