A rare breed in the freeride world, the Fischer Ranger 108 Ti is a lightweight ski (1,850 grams per ski) that won’t get bucked off an aggressive line. To reduce weight, Fischer mills out a beech-poplar wood core and then strengthens it with titanium inserts and sandwich sidewall construction. The combo provides great edge hold when things get spicy, but a rockered carbon nose provides easy swing weight and skiability. A flat tail with a skin notch makes it an ideal backcountry companion. “I’ll be the first person to say that I’m not a fan of skis with a flatter tail design,” says Dane Weister, “but I love the Ranger 108.”
