The Dynastar M-Pro 108 is one of the most unique skis I’ve ever been on. In contrast to most skis on the market that boast 100-plus-millimetre waist widths, which tend to be happiest and perform best in soft snow, the M-Pro actually seemed most at home in adverse conditions like crud, chalk and crust while tackling steep terrain. It was impressively burly and stable in the forebody, but with a lighter, tapered tip that—combined with a death-grip edge hold—provided the ability to pivot on a dime in tight and tricky situations in an escape hatch-like way. Thanks to its rock-solid reliability when the going got tough, it felt geared towards European-esque, billy goat-oriented freeride skiing, but still mowed down everything in its path elsewhere on the mountain like a monster truck in a parking lot full of punch buggies. As a result, I would recommend this war hammer to an advanced to expert skier who gets their rocks off on skiing steep, high-alpine chutes and couloirs, but still has a need for full-throttled speed when things open up. —JEFF SCHMUCK
