“Now this here is a true all-mountain ski. The Dynastar M-Free 108 is ideal for the type of skier who has transitioned from riding park to big mountain, and is looking to send it all over the hill and make use of the mountain from top to bottom. A more symmetrical design and closer-to- centre mounting point made this ski pretty dreamy in the air, and allowed it to pivot on a dime in the tight stuff. It was so easy to ski, it made me think of my mom, and how it could serve as a good pow day ride for a confident and centred intermediate skier who wrestles with a more traditional ski when the snow starts piling up. I personally found the tip and tail a touch too soft for my preference, but was a big fan of the shape and profile, and feel the M-Free 108 would be great for an advanced skier looking for a playful ride, or a higher-level intermediate who’s not looking to be taken for one.” —Sean Ennis

REVIEWER BIO:

Age: 24 / Height: 5’7” / Weight: 145 lbs / Occupation: Tree Planter
As the youngest and therefore most spry of our testers, Sean Ennis likes tackling steep and technical lines, smashing bumps and ripping groomers, all in an effort to make the most out of any type of terrain and condition. A tree planter in the summer and part-time freeski coach at Red Mountain Resort in the winter, Ennis spends a lot of time touring, and rode a fully rockered, 118-millimetre-underfoot ski in a 186-centimetre length for the majority of last winter, but isn’t opposed to the odd love affair with a flat-tailed directional charger.
