In 2010 I was convinced to try a pair of the Atomic Atlas'. I was convinced that I would not like them. They had camber and no tail rocker. I wanted that pure feeling. I got to take them up to Grand Targhee on a big powder day. I was immediatly blown away. The ski was everything I could have wanted. It had all the benefits of rocker and still skied like a Dynastar Legend on the crud and Groomers. Let's be realistic, most of us do not ski powder exclusively and most of us can only afford one pair of skis. The Atomic Atlas is the perfect match between a heavily rockered ski and a beefy all mountain ski. I have ran into quite a few people skiing newer technology. Mostly people are on dual rockered skis with camber under foot. These are pretty sweet, but not necessary for people who mostly ski in the fall line and don't ski switch that often.
The 2011 Atlas is very similar to the 2010 Atlas. Why fix it if it aint broke. Atomic left it largely unchanged. That is a good thing. The new graphic is super sweet.?Bottom line: If you ski Jackson, Aspen, Whistler, Chamonix, or Squaw this is one of the best skis for the job.??

This past spring I road tripped out to California to take advantage of their fat snowpack after an above average season for the Eastern Sierras. I started out hitting Mammoth Park and lapping top to bottom runs on the Mammoth Gondola. A few days later Colter showed up with plans to camp and do some Ski-mountaineering in the Palisades near big pine. Camp life. I was loving laid back condo life with the Saga crew but was eager to go camp in the Buttermilks. Everything came together for
In case you missed it, this weekend marked the beginning of winter for the northern Rockies. We know it’s only September, but Montana, Wyoming, and even parts of Colorado were blessed with some pretty significant snowfall. Some of us just couldn’t resist the itch, and dusted off our skis and boots to take them out for their first walks of the season. Well, we all know that with early season skiing comes some serious spraying, so here are a handful of the best captures we found on the ol’
