The Original Seven Summits is a relatively straight and stiff touring ski suited to intermediate to advanced skiers. It offers good edge hold for icy traverses and steep couloirs. A good all rounder. Made by Blizzard and very similar to the Blizzard TA Free Cross?.

Dynafit Se7en Summits

The Seven Summits Ski was designed for Dynafit pro-riders Olof Sunderstroem and Martin Letzter. Their project was to ski the tallest summits of the seven continents between 2003 and 2006 with the successful completion of 4897 meter high Mount Vinson located in the Antarctic. The pair were pipped by a few weeks by American Kit desLauriers, still they have the consolation of being the first men, and Europeans, and Swedes to have completed the seven summits. Kit also used Dynafit gear.

The Seven Summits ski features the name of each peak as part of the graphics. You can also see the wood core through a transluscent top sheet - something we also noticed with the Silvretta FR800?. The flat shovel and skinnier tail mean the ski is more tolerant. The Seven Summits has a slightly softer flex compared to the the Dynafit Mustagh Ata giving easier turn initiation under difficult conditions.

What Dynafit Says

The Se7en Summits Ski symbolizes the highest mountains of all seven continentsÂ… where skiers clearly encounter the most varied of snow conditions and terrain types. This ski is ready to face all challenges, from the sheer north face of Mt. Everest to the extreme weather and snow conditions on Mt. Vinson. The wide side cut curvature in the front and the tighter curvature in the back make for a large margin of error, while providing precise control on all terrain and snow types.
