Tourist-trapping mega resorts and carbon-spewing chopper outfits are the bane of your existence. Dynafit made the Huascaran ski to lead you far away from mass-marketed mountains to legendarily deep lines. This is the widest Dynafit ski ever produced, and it charges with the aggression of an ancient mountain beast and floats like a snowy owl on wing. 

Starting at the tip, you'll find Dynafit's Scoop Rocker, a long, rockered camber profile that keeps the tip elevated so you can punch through choppy chunder and stay on top of light, fresh snow. Gently rising tail rocker allows you to release the tail so you can pivot to change direction quickly or scrub some speed after a long, fast straight line. Despite its girth, the Huascaran is impressively maneuverable. Three types of of wood and a pair of Isocore stringers make this ski feel lightweight and responsive, and the triple-radius sidecut shape gives you progressively tighter turns as you tip the Huascaran further and further on edge. You get solid big-mountain performance in everything from notorious ski-movie terrain to tight, storm-day tree stashes.

To make ascending smooth, a big-mountain ski like the Huascaran requires a few additional touring-specific features. The tail uses a pintail shape to make it easier to slide this stick into the loops on your pack for boot packing, the tip accommodates Dynafit's Speed Skin touring skin attachments, and the base is made of a lightning-fast sintered graphite coating. Add a pair of lightweight touring bindings, and this is a ski that will break trail and allow you to pick your way to any stash or line you can spot from the valley.

Compared to the rest of Dynafit's touring skis, the Huascaran is securely planted in the world of freeride touring. This is the only Dynafit ski offered in an Alaska-ready 196cm length, and it's the only one with a triple-radius sidecut and a fully rockered profile. The Dynafit Grand Teton is the only ski that's comparable when it comes to width; otherwise, the Huascaran stands alone as the biggest brother in a family of light-and-fast touring skis.

Great for touring

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After an ankle surgery in January '15, I wasn't able to wear my alpine boots without pain.
I bought the huascarans for touring, but they became my main ski because I had to wear my touring boots all season.
I'm 6' 3 205lbs and the 196 huascarans were great! They do really well in powder.
Only problem is their turning radius. They do not turn well, so if you're not getting much snow, these aren't ideal.

Mounting point

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Loving this ski. Feeling like I should have mounted a touch forward of the zero line though, perhaps 1-2cm. I think this would help it feel a bit surfier and more playful. Only a couple of days so still getting used to it.

Update - found that mounted on the zero line I had too much tip, ski didn't feel balanced even in deep pow. Now remounted ski at 2cm forward line, and feels much more balanced. Should have done this in the first place! Like skis to be able to slarve and surf a bit - this is a traditional feeling ski, but at 2cm forward it does feel a little surfier than before.

Using Beast 14 bindings and Dynafit Mercury boot (loving both).

Loving the 196 length. I'm skiing in the PacNW on these and they rip. Super light weight, fat powder ski. It's just getting to be volcano season and I'll take them up there no doubt! I love the quick ease of the Dynafit skin system as well.

Bought time!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I should have done this last year. This is one of my all time favorite skis. Carves, surfs, slays ice and hard pack. Turns on a dime with no effort. Pow, chop, crud, rails. boot pack or skins. This ski simply rocks my snow world. Liked it so much I bought both a 177 and a 196. 177s are play toys. 196? Warp speed sleds. Dare to ride them that long. Tech bindings on both. Could be my one quiver ski for the NW. It isn't but it could so easily be the ONE for me. Could not be happier with a ski. Which is hard compliment to come by!

Never seen another pair on the hill. Too bad as they just have no clue what they are missing! Ugly graphic but it eventually grows on you. Some of my best runs ever last winter were on this ski. Grateful!!

Cool name, even better Ski

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

While this is my first pair of light, backcountry powder skis - I absolutely love them. Sure, there are lighter skis out there, but they will be below the 110mm width. I finally made the switch from heavy, beefy Duke bindings and paired these with Dynafit Radical FT bindings, what an amazing set up. I just look at this ski and its awesome graphics - it makes me want to get out there ! I am 6ft and went with the 186 - a great fit. I could have gone 196, but I do some tighter tree skiing and jump turns in chutes, so I went 186. Besides, I don't even think I could fit the 196 in my car or on my sled ski rack! Those would be very long! Not worth the extra weight either. My absolute favorite pair of skis.

The Mighty Huascaran

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Me: 22 years old, 5"10 165lbs. PNW. Advance Intermediate.

Current Set up: 4FRNT CRJ 180CM with Radical ST, 179CM Klint Prime with Marker Barons

I took the Huascaran out to Stevens Pass in WA on 1/29/13 with 11" past 24 hours. The Huascaran is an extremely lightweight ski considering how fat it is, around 8lbs. I was very impressed by how such a light weight ski handled the cut up crud on the backside of Stevens Pass at Mill Valley. It didn't take long for me to get accustom to the length of the ski and found the ski to be fairly stable at speed and loved to charged. Since the ski is meant for backcountry touring there is a speed limit in the crud but performs remarkably well. I was able to find some deep untouched powder in some gladed trees and the ski never had tip diving and stayed up on top of the snow very well. For being a big mountain backcountry ski it performed way better than I thought navigating the gladed trees. The Huscaran has plenty of girth for powder but stays remarkably nimble among the trees. If one was doing super thick tree skiing I would size down but the Huascaran is really meant for speed and charging soft snow, and it excels at that. The ski has some pop and is fun to get air with it. The ski was surprisingly quick on the hardpack and windscorn ridges and was decent at it. The lack of significant camber and girth makes the Huascaran uncomfortable to carve for extended times but when you need it the ski is very quick to give it. Overall I am very impressed by the Huascaran and Dynafit surprised me with how versatile the ski is. For a pure backcountry pow ski I would definitely replace my CRJ but it lacks some of the versatility for a resort ski that the CRJ offers. Anyone looking for a backcountry powder ski that wants optimal float and an energetic, driving ski should considering the Huascaran!

Hi. I've seen a lot of questions asked from intermediate or advanced folks, but I'm fairly new to skiing, making the switch from snowboarding in order to join my mates in the back country and on ski mountaineering trips. I'm 6ft, 180lb and not fussed about going crazy fast. Should I go 177 based on my basic skill level?

Unanswered Question

I am 6" and weight 200#'s. I like to make turns in all conditions and terrain. I mainly ski in Idaho so conditions can vary based on elevation. I was leaning towards the 186cm. Is that long enough?

How would this ski do in the north east (New York, Vermont, New Hampshire)? I'm an intermediate tele skier (expert alpine skier, making it easier for me to learn tele), I'm getting into backcountry skiing, but still do quite a bit of resort skiing. I also head out west once a year. I'm a big dude at 6-4, 240 lbs, so I can power a bigger ski easier than most. I'm a fairly aggressive skier. Any recommendations if this ski would work well for me?

I am 5' 9", 165 lbs., expert. Leaning towards the 177s, in part because my non-touring powder ski are the Armada Bubba 188 and it might make sense to balance the quiver with a slightly shorter ski. That being said, I love the Bubba 188s and worry that I might find the 177s a bit short. Thanks for the help.

If you liked the Bubba in a 188 cm, I would get this in a 186 cm. Are you looking for a ski similar to the Bubba? Just something lighter to tour in? This would fit that ticket but, I wouldnt get something that much shorter unless you wanted a serious lightweight ski mountaineering ski. Unless you plan to make some more turns and ski a bit slower you will find the 177 cm's to be short.

6'2", 195lbs expert skier. plan to use for touring in PNW and volcano summits in spring. usually ski 188-192 length range on other a bit torn w/ these length options. any thoughts on 186 vs 196 would be appreciated - or alternate ski options that might make sense. thanks!!

6"2', 148Ib expert skier. 177 or 186? I have the stoke in the 178 and love it but am thinking of going longer with these. Suggestions?

You would be safe to stay with the 177 length in the Huascaran, you won't know and we won't know what could have been. But you would be well rewarded for stepping up to the plate with the 186. As an expert skier you will appreciate the float this ski will bring in the 186 with a scoop rockered nose and low rocker tail. But you won't be sacrificing much maneuverability either, thanks to the triple radius sidecut you can turn that impressively wide girth in an impressively tight radius. Again, you will be happy with this ski in either length but I think you will be especially pleased with the advantages of the 186.

6'0" 145 lbs expert skier. I own the 186 cm Huascaran since 2 months and it's the perfect setup for freeride alpine touring. The 186 cm lenght is nimble and agile enough for short turns in steep couloirs or between trees but features plenty of grip and stability at high speed in open big mountain. Very happy indeed...! Do I wish 177 cm ? No way !

6'3", 200 lbs. Intermediate skier (at this point). Looking for boards that are fun&forgiving to ski in powder, can pick through trees but still be stable if I want to open it up. 177cm or 186cm?

I'm looking to hang up my split board/snowboard...

I'm looking to hang up my split board/snowboard setup this climb season/next resort season and return to skiing. I plan to do a roughly even amount of ski touring/ski mountaineering and resort skiing and I'm looking for a one ski quiver. Performance in pow is important, but if I give up something I'd rather it be that than PNW crud crushing, edge-holding ability or weight. I'm looking at the Hang5, Huascaran and Revert... any advice?

The Revert seems out of place with the other 2 skis? Both fatty, backcountry powder skis, where the Revert is more hard snow capable at 95 underfoot vs 115+. At 50/50 resort / BC skiing, I might look for a different ski with a narrower waist. Although I love my Huascarans, I wouldn't ski them on the resort (although you could) unless I had to.I have ON3Ps that I ski in the resort. I don't really think a one ski quiver exists. If I HAD to stick to one ski, I might look at the K2 Coomback. At slightly more weight, it would slay the resort a little better, but still be a great Ski mountaineering tool. My advice - save your money and get both!

I own bith the Hang5 and the Huascaran. Both great skis. If you plan on packing them far get the Huascaran. It is lighter. If you are going to spend much time on lifts...for sure get the Hang5. Ammazing ski for what you are asking. And why I own a pair.

What length Hauscaran would you recommend...

What length Hauscaran would you recommend for a 5'9" 144 lb female, "expert" skier (per your Men's Sizing chart). To be used primarily for AT, in a variety of conditions, though primarily (hopefully) for powder...

I am 6'5 195lbs and I ski in Colorado...

I am 6'5 195lbs and I ski in Colorado mainly. Would you recommend a 186 or 196. What are the advantages to either. 196 seems really long, but they are still super light and with 3 different side cuts it sounds like you can still make tight turns?

Hi Drew, At your height/weight I would lean toward the 196. There is @ 50cm of tip rocker, so it will feel like a shorter ski. The decision also hinges on how you ski. Are you charging hard? Prefer higher speeds? Go with the 196. Not so aggro, go 186. Hope this helps.
