Here's what other sites are saying:
Most backcountry skis aspire to tag at least one summit per tour, but Fischer's Transalp 88 Ski thrives for multiple summits in a day. It helps you achieve this by only adding a mere three pounds under each foot. Its ultralight weight is made possible through Fischer's innovative milling process, which shapes the poppy paulownia wood core with a unique concave to rid any excess weight without disturbing the ski's overall torsional stability. With a waist width of 88mm, this Transalp may still sit on the skinnier side of skis, but it's actually the widest Transalp Ski available. As such, it's the better option for variable snow conditions most commonly found in the alpine. It'll certainly edge its way off icy summits, carve through the crud, and navigate through spring corn with ease. Fischer's Tour Rocker tip will even stay afloat if you run into any powder on the descent and ascent.
