The Mythic 97 is like getting two skis in one! Essentially a hybrid of an alpine carver and a backcountry floater, it has a special feel. Turning on edge feels very solid on hard snow as if it’s running on rails. Get into soft or mixed snow and the generous tip with ample rocker will keep you going fast. It’s nimble through trees due to the short radius yet doesn’t have a problem opening up into bigger turns in open bowls. Best of all it features a lightweight, full-sidewall construction that will keep you slaying the trees and open bowls all day long. A high-performance lightweight ski? Some say that’s a myth. We say it’s a Mythic 97.
Update 2018/19: Just a new topsheet. The Mythic was already ahead of its time.
