  1. Hi Ali, I just read your review of the Fischer Ranger. I’ve been skiing the 2014 Nordica La Nina for a couple of seasons and I’m still in love. they charge and I like the stiffness in the crud. I ski 4 or 5 days a week and the la nina (13 mm under foot) is a lot on the body for every day. I just closed a big real estate deal and I want to buy a lighter skis for not so deep days. I ski at Grand Targhee and take trips to Montana. Ranger?? Is it the one? I’m 47, 5’1″ and 100lbs. I don’t ski like a mom but I don’t ski in the park unless my kids force me to:-). Thanks

    1. HI Miranda!
      So fun for a lighter-duty all-mountain ski, and a nice complement to the wider La Nina. Have fun!
