Dynastar Course WC

These skis scared me—and that was long before I even put them on the snow. Take a look at that narrow tip and tail. Pay particular attention to that expansive 23.6-meter turn radius. And how about a crazy-slender 66mm waist underfoot? Indeed, riding Dynastar's Course World Cup ski, a pure-blooded GS race board, is somewhat like going back in time (more...)

Growing up in Tahoe, my ussa far west, pre-olympic friends thought it would be a good idea for me to learn on triple-a racing grade 205cm K2 812's because they were, well, bitchin. Ah the 80's...

You picked an interesting selection of skis to demo this year, especially after trying out things like Gotamas last year. Did you think there'd be any chance you'd ever want a pure-bred race GS skis in the BC? :)

I did demo a bunch of skis I haven't written about yet which are more b/c-oriented. They're all 2012 skis, so they won't be available till later. I was trying to ski a range of styles so I could compare and contrast.

Plus, I do like to hop on a chairlift now and then, and when I'm inbounds, I love to let 'em run... :)

I'm not gonna lie, a little part of me was hoping that you were going to charge some massive backcountry lines on GS racing skis.
