dynastar cham 97 as backcountry ski?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Someone nearby is selling a dynastar cham 97 166 in length, I think the year is 2014, I don't think it's the HM version. I'm male 130lbs 5'7". Would it work as a backcountry/AT ski in New Hampshire? I think it's light, but not entirely sure. This version has metal in it I think, which may not be the best, especially at my weight.

I am not familiar with that particular ski.  However, since the seller is nearby, why not get him or her to agree to an on snow test, i.e. a private demo of the used ski.  This assumes, of course, that no binding remount will be required.

Doesn't have bindings, so that wouldn't work out.

If it's not the HM version, no. It's very stiff in the tail and a very heavy ski.

I saw that after a little more research. Thanks for confirming what I found. I'll let it pass.
