2015 Dynastar Cham W 107 ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its women’s Powder Category.

“A hovercraft that’s quick, effortless to steer and loads of fun,” says Sibley of skiing the Dynastar’s freeride-focused Cham W 107. The ski’s progressive five-point sidecut (130-137-107-122-98) means that although the rockered tip is wide, the widest part of the ski is in the forebody, tapering down to a narrow, flat pintail. Dynastar uses traditional construction, including full-length vertical sidewalls, a lightweight paulownia wood core and camber underfoot. Testers gave it equally high scores for versatility, playfulness and stability. “This ski can play, but it gets serious where necessary,” says Rodman. “It’s a multi-level playmate because it’s stable, easy to maneuver and floats joyfully.”
