Technical info:
High Mountain is the light version in the Cham-the series, and it is significantly lighter than the ordinary Cham 97. Like the other skis in the series, the Cham 97 HM has a fibreglass sandwich, a very short side cut radius in the front skis (14 meters) and a long setback. In other words, there is a huge difference in width between the front and back. It has a tremendous bend at the tip, which is concave at the very front. Cham 97 HM has a short carve zone and taper at both ends. The ski is soft at the waist and at the front, while the tail is very stiff.

On snow:
We have to admit that we do not quite understand why Dynastar build skis almost without a back ski and with so much sidecut. But: They function quite well. They are easy and stable through the turns. The short back ski easily exits the turn and the massive tip gives buoyancy. Not the most stable option at speed in powder, but nevertheless an exciting choice if you´re looking for an allround touring ski.
