With more than a century in the ski business, Sporten is a successful Czech company with an unusually broad range of cross-country skis, jumping skis, alpine skis and snowboards. Sporten produces high-quality skis at an affordable price, making skiing more accessible and enjoyable.
The Ranger 68 is an affordably-priced metal-edged waxless back country ski that's narrow enough to ski grromed trails yet wide enough to make fresh tracks in the wilderness. The Ranger can easily cope with deep snow and ice, even when carrying heavier loads. Ideal for tough skiers who need to get where no one else wants to go.
The Ranger 68 is identical in all respects to the Alpina Discovery back country ski made in the same factory - except for the Ranger's clear fiberglass top sheet, which exposes the natural wood grain of its poplar wood core in a manner reminiscent of the solid wood skis hand-crafted in Norway, 40-plus years ago.
