Atomic's Automatic line of skis are built for big mountain powderhounds who charge hard down big and deep lines. Between the three options, the widest and beastliest is the Automatic 117 Ski, which leads the pack like a wild wolf on the hunt—the hunt for the steepest terrain and the deepest snow. This fatty ski features a versatile and progressive Powder Rocker profile that is ideal for floating in and out of the deepest champagne and bombing over cruddy crap, chunky death cookies, or crumbly corn snow. Its rockered tip and tail allow for huge float and provide super easy turn initiation. Camber underfoot gives you werewolf-strong edge-hold at speed and on hardpack for those races to the bottom to catch last chair.

When you break out the 117, you better button up your powder skirt, cinch down your gloves, and whip out your snorkel. A Lite Woodcore makes for smooth flex and fluid turns, keeping things light and making this a hell of a ski for boot packing that ridge to that big line you've been drooling over all season. Atomic made this monster 10% stiffer than last year's model for more stability at speed. Its interior titanium alloy SPB (Sprocket Power Boosters) inserts in front of and behind the binding area maximize stability, allowing you to charge the chop with style and confidence.

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I have been skiing on Armada JJs and Blizzard Cochise for the last couple years and these skis have seemed to struck the perfect balance in between the two. They hold steady and high speeds, plow through crud, yet they are very playful and easy to turn when needed. I have sent some pretty scary, fast lines lately and felt confident that these skis could handle it. I am 5'9" 155lbs and ski the 186cm. I mounted on the factory line and it seems to be fine for charging but it is about 10cm back of center so if you like to ski backward or spin a lot I might recommend going a few forward. I have only used them about 5 days and really enjoyed them from the start. I have Tracker bindings on them and have been out for one tour on them and it is a bit heavy but you will have a better time than your friends on the way down. While this ski is at home in deep powder, it seems to do quite well in choppy stuff and even groomers.

Does anyone have some recommendations on size 186 v 193. I am 5'11" and about 195lb. Been on the annex 118 at 188 for two years now and would like a shorter radius thinking these guys.

Hi Mike,

I think that the Automatic is a good transition for you from the Annex. If you are looking for a more nimble ski I would go with the 186. Once you get up over 190 you are looking at a real boat, still going to turn fairly well but definitely not as playful as the 186.

If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to me directly.
