I bought the Dynastar Big about 2 months ago and have had nothing but hardpack to ski on until today. I skied thigh deep powder untracked powder all day and the Big is simply an incredible ski. I was able to rip through the pow at high speed and the ski was exceptionally stable. What really got me was the ski's flex...it was perfect. Some of the other fats I demoed were too soft which left me questioning their stability and others were too stiff which left me questioning their powder performance. Also, for such a big ski, its got great rebound energy.

What really surprises me is that the ski performs extremely well on hardpack (carves well, stable), although, it prefers high speeds.

I weigh 190+ and had inititially waffled between the 188 and 194, but I ended up buying the 194cm. In hindsight, I am glad I went with the longer length.

I did take one fall (headfirst), although the Look P12s bindings released smoothly.
