The Chamonix-inspired Cham series returns for 2013/2014 and testers gave the Cham 107 high marks for playfulness, echoing Bristow's sentiment: "Great fun. I love its rebound energy." A traditional construction includes Titanal, a lightweight wood core, vertical sidewalls and camber underfoot. But the bright graphics and unique shape demonstrate Dynastar's intent for a true freeride adventure ski. The Cham 107’s dimensions (listed as a progressive five-point sidecut, 130-137-107-122-98 with a 107-millimeter waist) reflect a tapering in the wide tip down to the narrower pintail with a generous amount of rocker. "The tail takes some getting used to, but the rockered tips float on top really well," Bills said. "Blows up the crud into piles," said Stoeger. "This ski offers big rewards if you ski it aggressively."
