It's hard to miss the general lightening up - literally and figuratively - of Atomic skis this year. In the case of the Highnoon, that's got a lot to do with the use of Atomic's 4Tix binding, one of the lightest on the planet. The Highnoon is as light-almost to a fault-as almost any other ski in the category. That gives it an irrepressible liveliness, and yet it's still as stable, supple and quiet as any Atomic. "Allows you to push your limits and supports every move," said Rogan.
