The Dynafit Greg Hill Stoke skis are everything you want in a touring ski. Its not super heavy, its not super light, it has a little bit of rocker to help with powder, but more importantly breakable crust. They have great edge hold, and a little bit of sidecut, but not too much to make edging in firm, bulging couloirs easy. The sweet spot is right on the balls of your feet. The Stokes are not soft but easy to control.
The Dynafit Stokes, compared to a lot of skis these days,may be too narrow for some, but the only real negative thing I can say is there is no way to attach the skis to your harness for crevasse travel.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
I tested the Dynafit Stoke skis on firm pack and they were very agile and stable. If a ski skis this well on crap, you know it will dominate in the soft stuff. If you are looking for a one quiver touring ski, this is it. Its got rocker, its not heavy, but not wimpy ass flimsy. Nothing Black Diamond is coming out with next year even compares to this. It was very easy to get into rhythm with this ski from the start. They are more agile and a little softer than the k2 coombacks and ski similar to the fischer wateas.
