More Info:

The Fischer Ranger 108 gave me a very calming feeling, to the point that I really didn’t have to think about this ski being on my feet. I was able to seamlessly focus on my line, the natural obstacles I passed, and the other skiers and riders I was able to overtake with style and poise. When I approached a mandatory air, I would land, and ski away with ease. The Ranger allowed me to ski from first chair to last, and from top-to-bottom no stoppin’, which was what I enjoyed most about this effortless ski. I was fortunate enough to ski it primarily on storm days in fresh, trackless pow, but when I came across a groomer or hard-packed snow, its edges cut like a knife, and allowed me to continue with confidence past the “lift closed” sign straight to my ski locker at the base. —MIKE FLOOD
