Have a couple of skis that are  to stiff for me as  I lost weight.
Both Fischers. ( Yes I contacted them. They said no can do)
One is skate and classic.
Skis do soften with time as some my older skis are much softer.
I Can not afford new pairs.
Any Suggestions

Put the weight back on or sell them.  Some ideas: ski swap next fall,
eBay, skinnyski.com classifieds ($20 membership req'd).

Btw, what # were they flexed for or fit well at, and what year skis?

Of course depending on the level of your skiing, why are the skating
skis a problem? Classic I can understand.

    All the best, Timo

Depending how much weight you lost, you can get by this season by
loading up a back pack, weight vest, or something similar.
