ATOMIC Maverick 86C

A mid-width all-mountain ski, the Atomic Maverick 86 C, is built for balanced and intuitive skiing. OMatic Construction combines only the essential materials – wood, fiberglass, and carbon – for lighter weight and smooth, easy handling. Flow Profile blends the perfect amount of rocker and camber for optimal effective edge contact on hardpack snow and ice. Whether you’re skiing the steep chutes of The Wall or the powdery glades of off piste, the Maverick 86 C is the ski for confident skiing in any condition.

SALOMON S/Force 11

Their immense stability is appreciated and the length of the edges, they are at one with the snow and nothing twitches. Very little in the way of vibrations at the front. The rise of the tips means you can glide over small mounds of snow without asking questions. The 80mm waist is comfortable in wet snow and on the edges of the pistes in ungroomed snow. These skis are reliable and know how to show off their muscle power.

HEAD Kore X90

With a versatile 90 mm waist, the KORE 90 X can arc up groomers or handle cut-up snow, thanks to a blend of materials like Graphene, with a high strength-to-weight ratio, and Karuba wood which adds stability. Tip and tail rocker—plus the sandwich cap construction enhanced with a new topsheet shape—creates a huge bandwidth for a variety of skills. Whether stepping on the gas or cruising around the mountain, the KORE 90 X is built to accommodate.

SALOMON Stance 84

As at home carving the icy steeps as it is on perfectly groomed corduroy, the Stance 84 excels regardless of the conditions. A progressive sidecut coupled with a lively wood core is agile and reliable, while the all-new Titanal and carbon construction grips the snow, making for a smooth, enjoyable ski anywhere on the mountain.

Redster X7

The first thing you need to know about the Atomic Redster X7 WB is the extra width – offering more control and more power when the snow is less than perfect.  It’s halfway between giant slalom and slalom so you can use it to ski short turns and long turns.  The perfect ski to grab when you know the piste conditions change from top to bottom or throughout the day.


The V-Shape V10 is the new shining star in off-piste terrain: for hedonists and advanced skiers alike.  Thanks to its geometry, this is a ski that is born to turn.  The broad shovel actively supports turn initiation.  Even in extreme, slippery situations this is a ski you feel comfortable with.  What's more, the V-Shape V10 is also fun on the piste.  We also have the V8.


SALOMON Stance 84

As at home carving the icy steeps as it is on perfectly groomed corduroy, the Stance 84W excels regardless of the conditions.  A progressive sidecut coupled with a lively karuba/poplar core is agile and reliable, while the all-new Titanal and carbon construction grips the snow, making for an enjoyable ski anywhere on the mountain.

HEAD Super Joy

With the super Joy, you can fully embrace your technique.  Designed to suit any terrain, this ski performs expertly.  Thanks to its super light weight, you can sweep through the mountains all day long.  Be prepared to reign all over the resort with this carving machine!  The Super Joy delivers surgical precision and effective energy transmissions.


Due to the popularity of the QST, we have introduced the LUX - the female version, for the first time this season.  The QST Lux 92 is lightweight and stable, boosting your confidence as you carve on hard snow, hit the moguls or explore some of the steepest corners of the mountain.  Without a doubt you will have everything you need to have fun on every face of the mountain.

Cloud 11

There’s nothing like long, sweeping glides down a piste – no sliding, no chatter, just you and the piste beneath you.  If that’s your style, the Atomic Cloud 11 is your ski.  It’s the ski for women who want to glide fast down the piste, carving agile turns with grace and precision.

HEAD Absolute Joy

The Absolute Joy is your true friend. It's for women who want a strong partner they can count on, but who also want to power up the learning curve.  It is a mix of lightweight materials and the key qualities of balance and control. It's the easy handling that gives you confidence in your skis and you quickly up your game. You soon feel comfortable on your skis and ready to face any terrain. As the name suggests: Absolute Joy!

Atomic Vantage W 86

The Atomic Vantage 86 is an excellent choice – easy and breezy on groomed runs, it’s predictable and confidence-building, yet capable – for letting you truly experience what skiing is all about.  Prolite – Atomic's revolutionary light construction with added reinforcements in key zones – keep the weight down.  The Carbon Tank Mesh and Energy Backbone add stiffness and stability.  This is a ski that helps Advanced skiers become even better.  Whether you eventually push your skiing further and faster, or enjoy the simple pleasure of cruising on piste, a ski like the Vantage 86 is a vital step in your skiing story.
