Last season, Atomic stiffened up the Vantage Ti line and added translucent windows that show off the core’s Titanal laminate grid. On snow, testers praised the 97Ti’s hard-snow carving skills and managed it in bumps and tight spots with little effort. But the ski’s best quality was its ability to remain welcoming at slower speeds, making it a great option to improve technique for nearly every ability level.

STRENGTHS: Hard Snow, Stability at Speed

WEAKNESS: Playfulness
