My Ranger 98 Ski
The Fischer Women's My Ranger Ski takes the difficulty out of decision-making by being versatile enough to go from dedicated touring ski to ripping your local resort to skiing big, visionary lines without compromising. While it's not nearly the lightest touring ski on the market, it weighs in at just over seven pounds per pair, so you'll be by no means too fatigued to style the line you just worked for. The light weight doesn’t come at the price of downhill performance, either, thanks to Fischer's Air Tech Ti core, which incorporates a strong, dampening Titanal laminate along with feather-light wood, making the ski torsionally stiff for power and precision through each turn. A helping of carbon in the shovel deflects impact as you plow through variable conditions both in the resort and out, and full sidewall construction adds to the ski's stiffness and strength while providing efficient power transfer from edge to edge.

- Q & A
High Tech Glam
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
A very pretty ski that glows off the surface of the snow didn't let me down when i pushed it to preform. The carbon tip with a metal laminate and popular core felt very lively and fun. A very smooth turning ski that didn't beat me up and kept me on the hill run after run. I rode the 172 length and felt like i could have ridden a much longer version of this ski because it skis a lot shorter than it sounds due to the rocker. Overall a very fun, playful, touring ski for women who want to have a fun easy experience on touring skis without sacrificing performance.
Solid All-Mountain Skis
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
These skis are a fun all mountain ski! They are so smooth, I felt like I was cruising while I ripped through the groomers. I also felt confident negotiating through pow without sinking.
Recommended Sizing Guide
Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preffered style of skiing. For example, an expert skier on in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
