The Dynastar Cham 97 Ski got its start in the motherland of big mountain skiing: Chamonix. Shocking, right' Given Chamonix's reputation, it's no surprise that the Cham 97 2. 0 likes to ski big, burly lines in all sorts of variable conditions. The rockered tip gives plenty of flotation and enhances your ability to punch through crud. Moving back on the ski, the camber underfoot delivers stability and reliable edge hold in a variety of conditions, right up to, and including, the most bulletproof conditions. The 5 point sidecut creates a pintail shape that prevents hooking and overturning in deeper snow and that helps 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 driver.
