You don’t need to think too hard on the Sultan 94. Subtle and smooth, it does everything an all-mountain ski should—and does it well. It’s stable and secure while carving groomed snow. Off trail, the 94’s tip rocker adapts to inconsistent terrain—trees, bumps, crud—without complaint. Skiers who like that classic what-you-see-is-what-you-get predictability, for which Dynastar is known, will find this ski reliable and adaptable, like an old friend. Aspiring experts will like its mellow attitude; experts will find plenty of horsepower.

Think of this as Everyman’s race ski. It does everything you expect a narrow carver to do—slice into the turn, grip powerfully, quickly pop into the next turn—but is more forgiving than a thoroughbred racer. Testers were uniformly impressed with its easy initiation, turn-shape variability, maneuverability, and steadiness at all speeds. It coaxes advanced intermediates into clean carves, but aggressive experts will find no limit to its power.

Skiing Magazine had a chance to ski a few of next year’s skis at the SIA On Snow Demo Days at Winter Park. Due to the huge amount of skis available and the little time we had, we limited ourselves to fat skis. We tested a handful of new, redesigned and carryover models between 95mm and 115mm underfoot. Although certain skis did better in certain conditions, there really wasn't a bad ski among them.
