Technical info:
Fischer Ranger has an interesting surface shape that bends down toward the edges. This is the case for almost all of this years’ Fischer models. Such changes in design often result in stiffer tips, and the Ranger is no exception. Soft waist. The turning radius in the back ski is long, while it´s short from the waist and forward. The Ranger 106 we tested last year had the opposite sidecut distribution. It has an acute tip angle due to little bend.

On snow:
This ski is marketed as part of Ranger´s big mountain series. It comes with skin fasteners in the back. But it is really a classical freeride ski. It works well at high speed on an even surface, but it is not particularly playful. It can feel unstable on crust, maybe due to the stiff, sharp tips. But if you like touring as well as charging down the slopes, also on days without powder, this is a good choice.
