“Game changer,” “quiver of one,” and “all-terrain” are terms used all too frequently in describing all-mountain skis. But with the brand new Chugach, Dynafit has succeeded in building one of the most versatile in and out of bounds skis ever made. In testing the 188-centimeter model (the ski is also available as a 173, 181, and 194 centimeter model), we found that the flat running surface, elliptical rocker tip and tail, and carbon inlay tip result in incredibly intuitive turn initiation and remarkable edge hold. For lift-serve or backcountry, or those long road trips when you don’t know what the conditions will hold, this is your new go to ski.
