Dynastar Cham 107 (2013/2014) ReviewAugust 30, 2013
- Quick edge-to-edge
- Loves steeps
- Easy to schmear/slarve
- Not confident on hard snow
- Long turns
Built for faceshot-filled arcs in a truly alpine setting, Dynastar's Cham 107 is a lift-served ski for prime days and skiers who get a lot of those prime days in.
Snowbird felt like the ideal testing ground for Dynastar’s Cham 107, a surfy feeling big mountain soft snow loving ski that absolutely eats up the steeps and excels making quick fall-line turns. Built for faceshot-filled arcs in a truly alpine setting, this is a lift-served ski for prime days and skiers who get a lot of those prime days in. Schmear it, slarve it, go ahead and carve it, but stay off the hardpack and don’t try to force a long turn.
A lack of hard snow performance and a drop in stability whenever you try to push the speed limit much above 30mph are the knocks against the ‘Cham,’ while its sluff-ability and forgiveness were ranked among the tops in the test. If you ski a lot of steeps, and a lot of soft snow, this is a great pick. If you just want to power through whatever any big day brings, check out the other reviews.
