“Drop me off in Valdez, this ski has serious stability at speed in the deep stuff” Zawacki said of the Cham 127, which received its highest scores for powder performance and lowest for versatility. “You have to work this ski in anything but powder,” Bills said. “Just give it a powder diet and it’ll float up on top.” At 127 millimeters underfoot, it’s the widest in the Dynastar freeride adventure Cham series, but shares the soft-snow oriented Levitation Profile (listed as a five-point sidecut, 146-149-127-141-110) with a long rockered tip and flat pintail. Construction includes vertical sidewalls and a lightweight wood core.
