Great all around ski for hard pack and Med powder.
Can't say enough about the quality of service from Peter Glenn. Yes, the skis are awesome--they hold an edge like a race ski and bust through the crud with ease. But it feels even better to purchase them from a company that clearly cares for their customers. Would gladly do business with Peter Glenn in the future.
I just bought these skis this season. They are awesome. I have skied Vail and Beaver Creek...these skis carve and turn like a dream. I had Elan Magic skis before and I couldn't tackle any of the black diamond hills without sliding across the hill, never comfortable that my skis were going to respond appropriately. These skis have great response and really are a dream. I am able to stop on a dime. I demoed the Volkl "little black dress" as well as these. The Volkl were great skis too but the Dynastar were more responsive and less "fluttery."
I've skied these since 2003 and still can't get over how great a ski this is. I'm on my second pair! Very heavy ski but solid construction. It's really a full out GS race ski in ugly yellow graphics. Get over the looks and buy them. They are amazing if you like to ski fast with confidence to drive through anything. They destroy crud, ice soft pack, you name it. They are damp at low speeds but very lively and smooth the faster you go. Not a bump ski (too stiff to release in really tight turns) but you will love groomers where you can leave 3 inch deep trenches when you rail them on edge. Very good edge to edge on wide radius turns. I ski them in the Cdn Rockies where they excel at everything but deep powder. Eastern skiers will appreciate the exceptional edge hold if you like wide radius FAST turns. I highly recommend this ski and at these blowout prices you can't go wrong.
Excellent all mountain ski. Skied Park City, Snowbird, Brighton this year on groomed and recent powder.
I bought a pair last season while working as an instructor at a resort in Summit County, Colorado. These can maneuver through crud, float through pow and even have nice pop through the bumps. Transition out of a turn you feel a lot of power. Use only if you are a very strong skier and know how to use your edges properly. Otherwise, having 90 under boot will hurt and not help. Keep the DINs cranked way up because a stiffer boot will help you maneuver on the edge. Its a stiff ski and has a serious camber so its not for the faint of heart, but if you can hack it, worth every penny.
