This is a spectacular ski. I bought a pair in the spring of 2013 for our trip out to Telluride and Silverton. It holds an edge on the groomers, is nimble in the bumps, and held its own on the steeps in the deep powder at Silverton.
These skis transformed my skiing, and I would heartily recommend them to skiers who want an all-mountain ski.
- Hold an edge on the groomers
- Quick in the bumps
- They float in the powder
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Dynastar Women's Cham 97 Ski is the eager-to-please middle child of the Cham family of big-mountain-to-backside skis. It's got a fat, long, rockered tip, mid-fat waist, and classic camber underfoot. So it can ride like the wind just about anywhere. Its Five-point sidecut features a reverse cut at the tip and tail to eliminate grabbing or wash-outs, and its flat pintail adds super stability and pop from turn to turn. Backside' Definitely. And hard-charging straightlines, tight turns, and everything in-between. This isn't a ski for a beginner, but it does have a lightweight paulownia wood core and fiberglass laminate for maneuverability and ease of use.
The 5-point sidecut & Levitation profile of Dynastar's Cham 97 Ski makes them more powerful, more maneuverable, and more stable than skis of its' size. From storm chasers to occasional riders, the Cham series has the magical ingredients to paint a smile on any rider. Levitation Profile has a fairly long, progressive tip-only rocker for improved terrain absorption and impeccable flotation in powder, and the flat tail is well-suited for high-speed freerides or off-piste jump landings. Recommended use - 70% off-trail and 30% on-trail.
