Editor's Choice 2019 - Men's Powder Ski


The latest addition to a long line of Dynastar’s hard-charging freeride skis, the Proto Factory isn’t for the meek. Testers were divided: those who allow their skis to finesse turns had trouble finding the sweet spot, but the bigger guys had a ball, especially at high speeds. The full poplar wood core keeps these fatties a bit lighter than expected, and a stout, poppy tail makes the Proto a top candidate for enthusiasts of Full Send.
