In a word: balance. Some skis are quick but not stable, strong in long turns but weak in short ones, floaty but not carvy. The Snoop puts it all together in a single wood-core, metal-free package that passes every test the mountain throws at it. If there’s a standout quality, it’s quickness—not necessarily a hallmark of Atomic fat skis past. But there’s plenty of Atomic-like stability at speed to go with that agility. “Stable yet nimble, strong yet maneuverable in any type of turn,” said Sabanosh.
