Dynastar Legend 8000 Skis 2008

Dynastar Legend 8000 Skis 2008

Hugely popular in the french Alps the Legend 8000’s are great all-rounders for the good intermediate to expert skier- they do everything reasonably well and are pretty easy to use. They are a touch boring though and although you can ski everything with them and it is one of the more versatile skis out there it is like most things that try achieve too much over too much ground, they just come up a little thin and uninspiring.
In the perfect world you would buy a really great on-piste ski for zipping around when the snow is hard and flat plus a second pair- such Dynastars Big Troubles for when the snow is more profound than a rather deep cavern with a bard (a poet in the traditional English sense) sat reciting in its depths.
Unfortunately the world is less than perfect so the Legend 8000 will retain its place as a good all-round freeride ski but not an inspirational great.
