Another winner for the Nomad collection, another story of surprising power without a lot of weight. With its 72-mm waist, the Coolgrey is the Eastern/hard-snow Nomad. Atomics traditionally succeed on hard snow, but test cards were sprinkled with words like “ease” and “fun.” It’s offered as a system, with Atomic’s 4tix binding. “It does many things well,” said Schoff. “And you don’t need to be a weight lifter.” Best For Carve addicts looking for an undemanding ride.

Best For

Carve addicts looking for an undemanding ride.

Not For

Heavy skiers, who’ll want burlier bindings.
