Technical info:
Dynafit are famous for their bindings and boots. Now they are also entering the fat ski market. The Huascaran is real powder horse with flat camber and rocker. Weighing less than to kilos it is lighter than the 11 and 12 centimeter waist width models it competes with. It has a long radius in front and shorter at the back. Other characteristics include a stiff back ski and a lot of setback.

On snow:
The Huascaran is a purebred powder ski for touring purposes. It would probably (we have not tried) feel a bit too lightweight with alpine bindings. But it seems fine tuned to boots and bindings where every gram is one too many. It feels calm and stable at speed. On harder snow it is rather tame and you should go for other skis in such conditions. However, this is going to be a firm favorite among ski tourers who are looking for powder descents.
