When the short turn comes back in vogue next season, the credit should go to the Dynastar M Pro 84 W. This ski wowed testers with its vim and vigor thanks to Dynastar’s new M Pro construction—a hybrid core of poplar and PU. Testers agreed that this ski’s standout characteristic is its agility. Yet for all its pop and pizzazz, it doesn’t disappoint in the stability or speed departments either, though testers caution it’s out of its depth in the crud.

STRENGTHS: Playfulness, Quickness

WEAKNESSES: Crud Performance, Hard-Snow Integrity
