Frank wote: Do not buy the Dynastars if you ski woods or MRG or CastleRock. In spite of being advertised as an "extreme" ski, the 4x4 cannot hold up to normal use under those conditions. Buy the Rossi's or get the Solomon X-Scream. Wish I had. During our recent encounter at Mt. Sneaux, Dylan recounted anopther Dynastar horror story. Sounds like your problems with dynastar skis in the bumps are not unique. I think he went through several pair in 12-18 months ....but I'm sure he could give you better details.
