One of our favorites from 2016 demo sessions, the Fischer Ranger 98 Ti Skis are an all-mountain ride that simply do everything well. Fischer is aiming squarely at sidecountry users with the Ranger series, and they seem to have nailed it with this ski. The Ranger 98 Ti is light but precise, initiates without hesitation, and has a cleanly attractive graphic scheme. The edgehold is excellent on harder snow, which is a bonus - the ski is clearly designed with variable soft snow in mind. Light and nimble feeling on your feet, this will be super tree ski in a foot or less of fresh.
