A true one-ski quiver.
It's Dynafit's critical attention to detail that puts them ahead of the competition, and the Dhaulagiri Ski is certainly no exception. Dynafit set out to make an incredibly versatile, one-ski quiver that's still light enough for backcountry tourers to really get after it regardless of the conditions. Like a monocle-wearing watchmaker, Dynafit shaped the Dhaulagiri with dimensions down to the hundredth decimal to assure optimal performance, and the ski has a unique dual sidecut radius (as opposed to the standard single radius) that extends the ski's versatility for turning tightly through trees or widening those turns down big, open terrain.

- Q & A
Best touring ski I've ever owned
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The most fun I've ever had on a lightweight touring ski.
Not the best for crud or screaming down the resort, but the best ski I've ever owned that was the perfect compromise between uphill performance and fun on the downhill. I have them paired with the dynafit beast 14's and I couldn't be happier. Also, ripping skins off from the toe is a little thing that makes a big difference.
Do it all
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'm hauling a single set of skis to France for a ski trip in Chamonix. Looking through my quiver, I realized that I did not have a ski suitable for type of big days in variable snow that I'm anticipating in France. I wanted something with enough float to make powder fun, but something I'd also be comfortable with in firm conditions or chunder. My powder skis are fun, but heavy, and my spring skis are a bit too narrow to make fun turns in fresh snow. These seemed to fit the bill on paper, and after a weekend of skiing fresh powder in the Wasatch, I can say that they are suitably light for big days, but have plenty of float for deeper snow. They like to turn and the lack of weight on the skintrack is awesome. Making turns lower down in the chunder presented no problems. I think I've found my one ski solution. Get the Dynafit skins to match, they are amazing. Ripping skins from the toe is handy as well. Never take your skis off to rip skins ever again!
