Accepted answer

If you disable mouse tracking on that series it'll be excluded from tooltip.

{
    name: 'Range',
    data: ranges2,
    type: 'arearange',
    lineWidth: 0,
    linkedTo: ':previous',
    color: Highcharts.getOptions().colors[0],
    fillOpacity: 0.3,
    color: 'red',
    zIndex: 0,
    enableMouseTracking: false //<--add this
},

See updated fiddle.
