    Yeah... for some reason these did not sell well around here at all. Perhaps, given that EVO is in Seattle, the US west coasters didn't buy into it either? They were on sale all over the place in Vancouver/Whistler for really low prices as well. Both the 97 and 107.

    Weird? Other than being really ugly to look at (IMO), reviews are strong.

      I think it was probably the fault of these things:

        I've skied both and they aren't in the same league, both the Cham and Cham HM are much more performance oriented and versatile IMO.

          I'm just telling you what I've been seeing with my eyes over the winter.

          These things were like cockroaches in Jackson Hole.

            those look fun. might have done an impulse buy if i had read this on time

            Could I get away with this being my "1", all conditions ski over here on the East coast (Sugarbush/MRG area of VT) --perhaps with an emphasis on enjoying the powder days more than the crusty days?

              They're every where. I think some folks were turned off by the looks of the Cham series and some were put off buy demoing them. While not totally demanding, the regular Cham is a very stiff and damp ski that really come to life when pushed hard and fast. The HM is too, just not so much. The Soul 7 and it's brothers are very playful and fun from the get go but fall apart if pushed to hard and fast IMO. I think that's why people like them and I can understand that.

                If a 178 is the right length for you, I don't think you could go wrong with the Cham 97 HM.

                  Well I ordered a pair. For that price I couldn't say no. May take them up to Tuckerman . Cham will be on a pair of HM Cham's

                      Yeah 178 is probably perfect. I'll keep looking for a coupon code--I guess EXTRA20 doesn't work on those huh?

                        No, I tried it. On the Cham 107 too, no luck. I am a little heavy for a 178 cm ski, but I really like that length for tight VT lines with my Nunataqs.

                        found this mini-review of the Cham HM97;

                        Off topic but in response to Chet I’ve got some 178 cham HMs that I like so far. About 12 touring days on them in spring CA conditions. They weigh 1700 g per ski (1690 & 1705 on my scale). Not the lightest, but light enough to be a consideration for touring. With Plums they make a good touring rig. They’re damper than your average touring ski IMO. Good edge hold. I’ve skied a couple steep chutes (45 degrees or so) in firmish snow and they’ve held. I can’t say the sidecut held me back. Love ‘em in corn. Good in crusty and heavy snow for the size. The tip stays up easily. I haven’t skied them in good pow but I can’t imagine they’d perform poorly given their performance in other variable snow.

                          Do they make the Cham 107 in a 200?

                              I don't think it would be that bad, although the 190 is probably just fine for big guys. I have some 196 Lhasa Pows that are as stiff as the Chams and they are pretty easy to turn in soft snow and straight line groomers well.
