Dynastar emphasizes the big shovel of the new Cham W87 with a sunburst pattern from the forebody to the tip. That’s where the magic happens for playfulness and float, its two highest-scoring categories. Tech details of the Cham W87 include full-length vertical sidewalls, a long rockered tip and a five-point sidecut (where the forebody is the widest part of the ski) along with a flat pintail. The core includes weight-reducing paulownia wood and a fiberglass laminate. “This is a fun, fast ski that’s great for all abilities,” Rodman said. “It can get wobbly at high speeds, but otherwise it’s easy, light and versatile.” “Hard core chicks to intermediates can have fun on this floaty ride,” Minneci said.
