The M Tour 99 has the same dimensions as Dynastar’s All-Mountain M Pro 99 resort ski, but changes the construction lay-up to create a lightweight backcountry-specific power tool. The brand mates PU with paulownia in the core to create energy and a unique, supple feel. Dynastar then adds a layer of basalt to quiet the ski when the snow gets chunky. The result is a very capable backcountry specialist with do-it-all dimensions that will feel just as at home in tight Northeastern trees as it will in the high alpine of the Rocky Mountains. Don’t be afraid to kick up the speed a notch on the M Tour to maximize performance, and, thanks to its featherweight classification, that goes for skiing up and down the mountain.
