2013 Dynastar Cham 97 Ski Review

Hi I'm Steve I just got off the Dynastar Cham 97. This is not your fathers Dynastar I can definitely say that. I give this 5 out of 5 stars. Which I dont think I have ever given a Dynastar in my entire life. I've tested this 3 times not already just to believe it was really true. This ski does everything. It's 97 underfoot so you can take it into soft pack and powder it's got a 15 meter radius turn so you can make quick short snappy turns, it's got rocker which is great for the soft stuff, its got camber which is great for the hard stuff. I could do anything I want on this ski, it was really stable, quick if I wanted it. Stable on big wide open turns, transition was good. Not sure fast on the transition but fora 97 waisted ski more than adaquit and it just skied different than any Dynastar I've ever skied before so I'm really impressed with this ski. Definitely on my top list for the skis that I have tested all year.

Everyone needs to try this ski

Cham 97 and 97 HIGH COUNTRY.Same skis from Dynastar except that the Cham 97 is a metal laminate core compared to a light wood core of the High Country. Normally I can tell the difference between a metal laminate ski(better damping and edge grip and less chatter on hard pack) than a light wood core ski, but the difference between these two skis seemed to be almost none, slight chatter but still good edge with the wood core version.For the up tract take the High Country at almost two and one half pounds lighter per pair,and for resort skiing use the Cham 97. The skis have some what of traditional camber with a long rising tip.This makes for shorter contact length allowing for a quick turning ski that will still rip fast gs turns because of the camber under foot. these were some of the most fun skis of the on snow demo. they just rip!

2013 Dynastar Cham 97 Ski Review

Hey I'm Brad. I just got of the Dynastar Cham 97. I'm going to give this ski a 3.5 out of 5 stars. For me personally, it was super smooth definitely skied well at medium to high speeds. This is definitely for your guy who kind of slowing down a little bit and wants more of a cruiser ski but definitely likes the float. Something of your out west or your little bit of deeper stuff. For someone whos really aggressive spends a lot of time in the air, I found the fatter tips tend to get hooked up a little bit and they didnt really like to go super super fast but again if you're a guy who's looking for maybe a smoother ride, not really driving it super hard this would be a great choice for you.

2013 Dynastar Cham 97 Ski Review

Hi Thom here with the Dynastar Cham 97. I'm going to give this a 4 out 5. It's a real predictable ski, it's really easy to engage. You just kind of look where you're going and it gets up onto edge. So for your guy whos looking for a little bit wider a little bit more versitle ski that can do everything that is gong to be charging, isn't going to be skiing as hard they can all day, it's going to be a really solid, real predictable easy turner for them. But it's gotten a stability in the guts to get up to speed a little bit faster. But for your aggressive guy who's really going to get after it and ski tip heavy, and drive the ski into engagement this isn't the ride for you.

2013 Dynastar Cham 97 Ski Review

Hi this is Trey. I just got of the Dynastar Cham 97. A brand new ski for these guys, I give it 4 out of 5 stars. I think it's a great ski for a solid progressing intermediate all the way up through an advanced skier. It's pretty stiff in the tail and it's a narrow tail so you can really lean into it and have it hold and make pretty aggressive turns. It's got a big shovel and floats through the crud and maybe even a little bit of powder so it's a pretty versitle ski all over the mountain easy to turn stable and a really fun ski. 4 out of 5.

2013 Dynastar Cham 97 Ski Review

Hi I'm Kevin and I just got off the brand new Dynastar Cham 97. I give this ski 4.5 out 5 stars. Really surprised me. All new concept from Dynastar this year with the Cham series. Rocker in the tip, camber underfoot, tappered tail. This thing actually railed on GS turns. Super stable, lots of edge grip at high speed and those big wide turns. Just quick edge to edge I can load it up pretty easily for a metal ski. I could get it to pop from turn to turn. So overall a big surprise, 4.5 out of 5 stars.

2013 Dynastar Cham 97 Ski Review

Hey this is Luke, just finished skiing Dynastars Cham 97 I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. It's definitly one of those skis that you can take out of the powder and go arch some nice turns on the hard packed. Little rocker in the tip and tail. You can actually lay down some nice smaller turns with this ski, pretty lively under the foot. Nice and stable It's one of those fun all mountain ski. Definitely going to be geard more towards your upper intermediate through advanced maybe your casual expert level skiers, so check it out!
