Like a lot of brands, Fischer offers two different flavors at this width. The Pro Mtn 95 is an edgy, flat-tailed charger that’ll dig trenches in soft corduroy. But testers preferred the looser performance of the Ranger 98. Its turned-up tail, tapered tip and generous rocker make it easier to pivot and skid, especially in soft snow. But metal reinforcement gives it reassuring heft and solidity underfoot. Playful, yes, but never wimpy. “A pleasure to rip crud on, but it’s fluent in groomed too,” said Casey.

Strengths: Floatation, Crud Performance, Stability at Speed
