This Ski Is A Staff Favorite:
This ski can honestly handle it all! With that large amount of rocker in the tip, I was skeptical whether it would carve turns on the hardpack. To my amazement, this thing lays down trenches. The carbon tip keeps things light and easy to manuever when the going gets tough. I have not had the chance to ski this in any deep snow, but my guess would be it surfs nicely and slices through pow like butter.

All About the Ranger
Fischer's Ranger collection was so strong on the men's side that Fischer brought the name to their women's all-mountain-wide skis. Then the name hit boots. For 2020 Fischer skis, you'll see updates to the Rangers in each category. The ski lineup gets a new Ranger 94 FR, and the Ti versions are updated and offered in 92, 99, and 107 sizes. Meanwhile, the freeride-worthy Ranger Free boot will be accompanied next season by a wider Ranger One. It's more Rangers for more skiers.

New Rangers in Town
Fischer's Ranger series has built a well-earned reputation as the type of all-mountain/big-mountain ski that grizzled, old-school rippers refer to as a "real ski." The line returns in 2019 with a new 102mm-waisted version that profiles as a go-to one-ski-quiver for aggressive, directional skiers.
Fischer also adds a Ranger that measures 92mm at the waist and is oriented for teen skiers.
For 2019, Fischer also dives into the alpine-performance touring boot scene with the release of the Ranger Free 130.
At a weight on-par with other leaders in the category—think of the Salomon MTN Lab, Scarpa Maestrale RS, and Atomic Hawx—the Ranger Free aims ... Continue Reading
Let's be honest: most of us here at Powder7 are in it for the gear. We like gear--buying gear, testing gear, talking about gear--and we won't apologize for that. That's why we're always pumped when chilly November air arrives and it's finally time for our first on-snow ski demo of the season, hosted by Loveland Ski Area.
When it comes to picking our favorite skis at a demo day, however, it's impossible to choose just one. Even narrowing things down to the usual top 10 list feels too constricting for us. So, after testing out the latest gear and falling in love over and over again, we ended up with the following list highlighting a baker's dozen of the best 2018 skis from the Loveland demo.

2019 Fischer Ranger 98 Ti Description:
Whether it's turns in extreme powder or tough terrain, this ski gives you maneuverability and stability wherever you go, thanks to the combination of Air tec Ti and its Carbon Nose. With its Sandwich Sidewall Construction the Ranger 98 Ti ranks among the supreme high-performance models in the freeride segment. The wood core and sidewalls are combined in a very high-quality sandwich construction. This gives you high stability and good edge grip. The Freeski ROCKER is an absolute must-have for the Ranger 98 Ti. The shorter contact length of the ski is designed for extreme conditions such as those you encounter in freeriding. This means it is easy to turn and saves energy in all situations.
