Tricia: A lot of women wondered about the “My” skis, and Fischer listened, leaving women's ski names behind but not their performance. The Ranger 102 FR brings the same nimble powder day experience that I’ve grown accustomed to: stable in moguls and crud, floaty in powder, and powerful through dicey conditions. This is a friendly-for-freshies ski that is a no-brainer on a powder day.

Insider Tip: If you want more of a daily driver, check out the Ranger 94 FR. Available in two colors, blue and pink.​

I am a huge fan of the Fischer Ranger 102, a ski that I have been on for roughly three - four seasons. This has been a daily driver for me as I feel the 102 can handle a wide range of conditions. They also make a 94FR but I feel the 102 can pretty much do everything the 94 can but with a little more versatility. Don't pay attention to the numbers on this one as the 102 can easily handle itself and hold a great edge on piste. I once had this at mammoth after a five feet dump in about 48 hours and had an absolute blast. The ski has a well rounded flex so its perfect for anyone looking to use it as a true directional twin or move the bindings forward a bit and use it as more of a freestyle ski. Seriously, don't sleep on this ski I promise you won't regret it!

LOVE this ski, I sold my two blue 184 and 191cm, to buy two new in pink! the 94FR can't touch the 102FR imho, even for when you would want a 90. I mount +2 on 184 and +3 on 191

If I skied out west I would likely be on this or the 99 Ti based on my experience with the 115 Ti (FR shape) as an east coast powder/crud ski.

I picked up a 115FR last season and absolutely love that as well! In a 172 it is only about 110 underfoot and used that at Palisades (Squaw) during the spring as a daily driver. More than satisfied with my dual ranger setup!

Completely agree with you! the 94 to me is not required as the 102 is certainly the winner in that FR series. My 115 is an absolute blast as well but certainly it has its limits. I also mount mine +3 and +4 and still find it to be a killer ski. Kept my blue ones and got a pink version for touring, glad to hear others love the pink as much as I do!
