If they built this one for you, well, Dynastar thinks you’re a hell of a skier. Anyway, you’d better be. Modest sidecut, stiff flex and race-ready metal-laminate construction combine to make the Pro a true mountain crusher. No, it doesn’t have a lot of patience for pussyfooters. But if you live to gobble powder-choked vertical in long, speed-hungry arcs, then step right in. Testers couldn’t find a weakness, unless it was quickness. “Smooth operator, especially in long turns,” said Woods.
