Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dynafit Chugach 181 My experience skiing the Chugach was for 3 weeks this September in Bariloche, Argentina. I was on the 181 with the Radical 2.0 ST bindings and Vulcan boots and skied almost every day. Amazingly powerful but also light setup. We did a lot of touring days in the backcountry surrounding Cerro Catedral and few days skiing only the resort. I skied every imaginable condition and I felt solid and comfortable in every one. The carbon shovel charged over variable snow and at high speeds they were very stable, predictable, and inspired confidence. In powder they are an absolute blast. Floaty, playful, and give you the feeling of being super human. They aren't made for ripping groomers but they definitely held an edge and I could carve nice gs turns on them. I am 5' 9" and 160 lbs and the 181 was a good, versatile length for me, but I bet the 188 with the longer turn radius charges even a bit more. I'd also like to add that I would mount alpine bindings on these for strictly a resort skiing setup, these aren't tourers only. The Chugach is the ultimate free ride tool to ski big lines in the backcountry and get there under your own power. A few years ago I never could have imagined a setup that was so light but also skied so well. It is definitely a great time to be a skier.

What size binding do you mount on these skis? By that I mean what width brakes? They are about 108 mm wide and dynafit makes brakes on the st at 90, 105, and 120 mm. Which one do u use? Thanks

Asked by: Single track
The 105s will almost certainly work without modification, but might require a little bending and/or plastic trimming to fit. The 120s will obviously fit but will be noticeably wider than the ski edge when retracted; I have the Dynafit Huascarans (112mm waist in 177cm length) with Radical ST 2.0s in 120mm width, and I have ~2mm of brake overhanging on each edge. This means the tips of the brakes just barely touch when the skis are placed edge to edge next to each other. On the Chugach, especially the shorter lengths, you could run into problems where your brakes are smacking into each other while skinning with the 120s.
