Dynastar ATV


1998 Executive-Silver Medal Winner

Size: 170-197 cm
Price: $595
Details: Dynastar's peppy all-terrain vehicle is "a choice stock option for the western executive who has his eye on adventure," said Bigford. The consensus: This ski prefers the cut-up, the crud, and the bumps-just about anything over corduroy carving. With a full 67.5 mm of width under foot, the ski plows through obstacles, yet its shape keeps it agile. If you're a lighter expert heading out West for most of your skiing and you want to venture off the boulevards, consider the versatile ATV.

Positives: Consistent in all snow types
Negatives: Not built for big G-force turns
