Test Notes

The Dynastar M-Free 99 lives up to its name: a freeride ski at heart, with capabilities everywhere on the hill. This ski is marketed as a daily driver, which it proved to be during testing. It skied in an agile, playful and smeary way, and leaned towards pivoting over traditional carving. As a result, it seemed most at home in the steeps, where the rocker profile allowed it to pivot swiftly, whereas on the groomers, it didn’t shine as brightly, but managed them incredibly well. And it was responsive in any and all types of conditions I took it. In softer snow, be it powder or corn, this ski offered ample amounts of fun. It handled soft crud with ease, but did deflect a bit in firmer chop. Plus, while I’m not an overly avid park skier, the groovy, pouncy and poppy characteristics of this ski made me think it would excel in that environment as well. —Katie Spittlehouse
