2023 Fischer Ranger 96 Skis w/ Marker Griffon 13 GW Bindings
Fischer Ranger 96 Skis with Bindings
Looking for that ultimate one-package quiver for any mountain? The Fisher Ranger 96 Skis with Bindings delivers on all-mountain versatility. We like to say theta the mid 90's waist width is the ideal width for true all-mountain skiing. Hard snow, ice, chalk, windblown packed powder and powder, this killer package excels in a variety of conditions. It all starts with a wood core, that provides just the right amount stiffness and stability. The ski is further enhanced with a ribbed sheet of Titanal that provides incredible dampening and smooths out the ski over rough terrain. It also provides additional power and heft when you want to step on the gas pedal a bit. Freeski Rocker gives the ski exceptional float in powder, and allows you engage and release into turns effortlessly. The skis ability to rip through crud and chunder is quite impressive as well. A sintered base keeps the 90 fast with exceptional glide when you need in most on those flat run out that lead you back to the lift. Advanced and expert skiers will appreciate the wide spectrum of terrain and conditions that this set up will just devour, run in and run out. The Fischer Ranger 96 Skis with Bindings is the one set up you will ever need to tackle any mountain on any coast.

Both are in the same category of all-mountain, versatility.
The Ranger is narrower and bit more damp, so will provide better hard snow grip, while the Unleased is wider and more floaty in soft snow and powder, and is a bit more playful as well. Both are great quiver of one skis for the East. Very versatile and are very capable front side and backside performers.
I’m a 5’7 170 lb advanced to maybe expert east coast skier. I typically ski a length of 170 on a daily driver and sub 170 on my carvers. I’m between the 166 and 173 on the Ranger 96. Like to carve groomers and starting to attack the bumps whenever possible. Trees when I can as well. Do the 96s run true to length with the rocker profile? Suggestion on length 166 vs 173? 166 more manageable in bumbs/trees , or much stability would I give up on groomers?
We've not found anything about the skis that lead us to think they're not true to length. At your size and application, I'd go 173. Have fun!
