Dynastar M-Free 99
If you’ve followed along here at SkiEssentials, you’ll know that we have an affinity for wider twin tips like the Dynastar M-Free 99. This ski returns unchanged for 2024, and that’s great news for skiers who want another crack at this awesome freeride twin.
The M-Free 99 has a sophisticated build, a fun-loving shape, and a maneuverable profile that makes it one of the best blends of freeride and freestyle out there. One of the most surprising things over the years has been the realization of how well skis like this operate on groomers and more front side terrain. While steeper and icier trails are still not this ski’s forte, moderate groomers, and especially those with somewhat softer snow, are a heck of a lot of fun.
The nice thing is that the flex allows you to access the entirety of the sidecut, making the M-Free 99 a wonderfully turning ski on corduroy and other smooth surfaces. The big bonus here is that you get everything else at the same time—bumps, trees, powder, and park.
