Dynastar 4X4

Gear

1998 All-Mountain Expert-Silver Medal Winner

Size: 170-197 cm
Price: $696
Details: “Built for the lower faces at Jackson Hole,” said Morgan of the go-anywhere 4×4. Thanks to its generous loft, the ski is maneuverable and comfortable in all conditions: powder, crud, bumps and variable snow. The 4×4 is slightly wider under foot than most performance skis (67.5 mm vs. the average 64 mm or so), but it still has tons of shape. Plus, Dynastar’s Power Stack lifter (standard on the 4×4) raises the boot and binding 14 mm off the ski for turn-on-a-dime leverage.

Positives: A bouncer with good manners
Negatives: Needs energy input
