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 Cham 97 Ski got its start in, of all places, Chamonix. Shocking, right' Given Chamonix's reputation, it's no surprise that the Cham 97 likes to ski big, burly lines in all sorts of off-trail conditions. The long rocker tip gives plenty of flotation and enhances your ability to punch through crud of all types. Moving back on the ski, the underfoot camber delivers stability and reliable edge-hold in a variety of conditions, right up to, and including, the most hardpack of the hardpack. The 5-point sidecut creates a pin-tail shape that prevents hooking and overturning in deeper snow, and that also helps to initiate carving and turns on groomed snow. The full-length vertical sidewalls deliver tons of edge grip, balance, and stability, no matter how fast you get going. If you're a hard-charger who likes to be able to hit areas all over the mountain, you'll love the Cham 97 as your everyday drivers.
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.
