“Want to feel like a hero anywhere on the mountain? The Ranger 102 FR is for you,” wrote one tester. And she wasn’t the only one smitten with this ski—every one of our ladies loved this ski for its playful and powerful edge-to-edge transfer on groomers and its versatility everywhere else. A pink top sheet indicates this version is meant for the ladies, but it’s the same ski as the men’s and includes a Titanal binding plate, twin-tip profile, and carbon shovel. That said, ladies didn’t find it burly and instead praised its forgiving nature.

STRENGTHS: Playfulness, Quickness

WEAKNESSES: Flotation, Hard-Snow Integrity
