After years of trying to figure out what women want, the guys at Atomic had an inspiration: Hand over the drawing board. Smart move: This year’s Sugar Mama ranked near the top of the category. Lightweight with a powerful tail, it’s vivacious yet dependable. Torsion Flex Control panels (borrowed technology from the new men’s Nomad series) fore and aft give it a soft flex without sacrificing edge-grip. “Humvees with Porsche performance,” said Chappel.

Best For

Stronger skiers looking for true versatility.

Not For

Daydreamers. A stiff tail demands attention.
