Dynastar dials up the performance in its women’s line. A full wood core and sandwich sidewall construction make the Eden stable, and metal laminates make it stiffer and more precise. This damp powerhouse bites through ice, surfs in powder and charges through trees. It’s got heft—some called it a giant—and a stick-to-the-snow feel that breeds confidence. But that costs the ski its playfulness, especially at slower speeds. “Best suited for a stronger skier,” Forland said.
