A good mountain is like a good buffet it has a little bit of everything, and it's up to you to sample it all. If skiing is a multi cuisine free for all, the Fischer Koa 84 Women's Ski is a knife, spoon, fork, and chopsticks all rolled up into one, making it the perfect utensil to chow down on soft snow, gobble up groomers, and slurp down some steeps. The Koa series is Fischer's line for intermediate to advanced ladies, and the 84 is the biggest plank in the family. With an 84mm waist, it's not exactly a fatty, but it's ideal as a daily option for East Coast and Midwestern rippers and a killer choice for West Coasters looking for a hardpack ski that can still venture off piste. Fischer's Freeski rocker combines a rockered tip with a moderately raised tail and camber underfoot, so you can float over fluff and pivot through tight trees without giving up serious edge bite on hard snow. Smooth flexing and lively poplar wood gives you a buttery smooth luxury car ride with nimble sports car handling, and the high tech Air Tec milling process reduces core material, and the corresponding weight, without affecting the ski's flex. Metal didn't really have a place in such a lively, supple ski, so Fischer opted to provide the backbone via a Fiber Tech fiberglass laminate, which keeps the Koa stiff enough to ski hard without overwhelming lighter skiers or demanding all out aggression. It also designed the ski with the Women's BMP, a binding mount point that's located slightly forward, so you'll have an easier time keeping your weight forward, which leads to increased control and less fatigue.
