Dynastar Cham High Mountain 97 Skis 2015

Dynastar Shop all Dynastar
Dynastar builds the HM (High Mountain) Series to provide ski tourers and ski mountaineers with a high-performance version of the regular Cham Series skis in a lighter, more ascent-oriented package. They score big with the Dynastar Cham High Mountain 97 Skis, probably their most versatile width and suitable for touring year-round. With a progressive 5-point sidecut that kills it in any fresh snow situation, a long rocker tip for float, and a sharply tapered pin tail that lets you bring the tails around easily in tight spaces, the HM 97 is a ski you can depend on no matter how burly the descent.
Rocker Type
Long Rocker Tip - A long, progressive rocker through the forebody of the ski delivers superior floatation in deep snow and crud and enhances steering, maneuverability and control.
Classic Camber - Delivers stability, reliable edge-grip and power and enhances turning and maneuverability on groomed snow.
Flat Tail - A flat and tapered tail aids in skin attachment and planting the tail of the ski in the snow.
Progressive 5-Point Sidecut - Combines reverse sidecut in the tip and tail with traditional sidecut underfoot to deliver effortless maneuverability and smearing capability, as well as easy turning and speed control in all snow conditions.
Pin Tail - Enhances tip float and directional control while allowing easier speed control in tight spaces
Lightweight Paulownia Sandwich Construction - Paulownia wood core, fiberglass laminate, and full vertical sidewalls reduce weight by 25%
Fiberglass Laminate Construction
Full Length Vertical Sidewalls - Deliver the ultimate edge grip, power and balance
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.


  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Alpine Touring
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Alpine Touring
    Also known as backcountry skis, alpine touring (AT) skis are designed for going uphill as well as downhill. These skis are typically light for their width and many feature fittings that accept climbing skins. AT skis vary in width and weight, with the wider heavier versions usually used for winter/deep snow touring and the skinnier, lighter skis usually used for spring/summer/long distance touring.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber skis pair a traditional cambered profile underfoot with an elongated, early rise tip borrowed from fully rockered skis. This profile places the front contact point further back from the tip, while the rear contact point remains close to the tail. The rockered tip allows for better flotation and less edge catch for increased float in deep snow, while the cambered rear stores and transmits energy similarly to a fully cambered ski.
  • Turning Radius: Short
    < 16 m radius is best for carving.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Flat
    This is your traditional tail, designed to have edge contact all the way through the tail, and only designed for skiing forward. This is also preferred for alpine touring, as you can stick the tails of your skis in the snow.
  • Warranty: 1 Year (2 Years with Look Bindings)
