Its waist is stable but not too wide. Its sidecut is fairly deep. Its flex is appropriately soft. All that adds up to a ski that should help the skidding masses to master the art of carving. The Bluemoon is as easygoing as any ski in the category. It's light but never flighty. And as you'd expect from an Atomic, it arcs with rock-solid exuberance: Just tip and add pressure. "A perfect Aspiring Expert ski," said Lewis. "Safe and comfy, but responds when you load it up."
