  • "Really Impressive"

    , Jackson Hole,WY
    Pros: Good Edge Hold,Smooth Ride,Floats in Powder,Smooth Carves,Durable,Great Carving,Great Response,Good Grip,Great Construction, Cons: A little on the heavy side

    These look a little strange but perform exceptionally well. I found them to be quite quick edge to edge and very carve friendly. The spoon tip helps the ski float and allows it to be rather forgiving. I really enjoy this ski for an everyday all mountain experience. Great ski.

Would these be good for the backcountry?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2013
Best Answer: Yes, the Dynastar Cham 97 Skis are great for the backcountry. They are on the lighter side and have a spoony look to the tip so your uphill travel will be a bit easier. The downhill performance is awesome on these sticks. Dynastar designed the Cham series with some pretty wild geometry but it translates to float in the deep and control/drive/precision on the resort. The 97 has a modest waist that is perfect for the dedicated back/sidecountry skier for longer or technical skins track/trips. Great for light and swift travel. However, if you are looking for pure powder performance and not minding a bit more work on the uphill the Cham Series does have some bigger sets. Check them out here.
