Dynastar Mythic 97 Pro
When we think Dynastar, we think nimble, quick and floaty planks that ski wider than they are. Looking for a ski that will help you progress as a backcountry skier and that will do great in a broad variety of conditions? The Mythic 97 is a great choice for backcountry skiers who spend time East of the Divide but who don’t want to be let down when it gets deeper. We especially like the Mythic’s liveliness and playful nature and their strong edge power underfoot.
During our time on the Dynastar Mythic 97 so far, it has performed quite well for a ~1500 gram ski. It’s not as demanding as the flex pattern may lead one to believe, but it is still impressively stable for its weight. The generously rockered shovel design is very much not hooky, which is great in crust and on firm snow, and it also helps the Mythic 97 float very well for its width. However, the tail won’t break free as easily as softer, more tail rockered skis and will want to finish the turn in firm snow. So overall, if you like to carve on firm snow in the backcountry and are looking for a mild-mannered yet-stable ski for a broad range of conditions, you should definitely consider the Mythic 97.
