Rocker v. Atlas
I skied rockers on deep days last year and although I think they're The Jam for powder skiing, they are a lot of work in skied up snow.
I'll probably get at least another winter out of the things, but I'm contemplating trading them for something thats a little easier to ski after it stops snowing. I'd also like something slightly lighter.
The Atlas is certainly a little lighter, and has a considerably smaller sidecut. I also think that a shorter rocker in the shovel would make it a more versatile ski.
But, I've never skied it.
Any thoughts? Who's skied both?

Without having tried both, the differences are probably as you'd imagine. I have read people liking the Atlas on groomers. Nobody has ever said that about the Rocker.

In the end I got the rockers. Love them for Whistler and ended up skiing them a lot more than I thought I would. Personally I find them fine on groomers, and a fair bit easier than prophet 130s or kuros. What you say about the Atlas makes sense though, although I haven't tried them.
