    Is there such a thing as too much powder?

    The test results came back negative. There's no such thing as "too much powder" when you have the Atomic Backland FR 117 Ski. This freeride powder charger features Atomic's HRZN Tech ABS sidewall construction, which includes a horizontal rocker to add more surface area to the tip for enhanced flotation, reduced tip deflection, and overall better performance when you're in the deep stuff.

    The Backland strikes a stunning performance-to-weight ratio for resort or backcountry use. A poplar wood core keeps the ski light enough for quick tours, while the carbon backbone ensures agility and edge hold when you're cranking speeds down big mountains. Atomic made this ski with freeriding professionals Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and Dana Flahr, so you know it can handle speedy descents down AK spines.

    Resort Crusher BABY

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Got these as a gift for my Dad and he LOVES THEM. He was originally skiing on some older Rossi skis that were 100 underfoot and just didnt seem that comfortable for his size and weight.

    Gifted him a pair of these, and at 117 underfoot he has been cruising through the pow effortlessly and charging over the chunder. His confidence in the skis and level of skiing ability has shot way up.

    We paired these with a Look Pivot ski binding and he loves the control and feel of the bindings with the ski. He says he can feel the flex of the ski a lot more and his skiing seems more natural since his foot is right over the ski.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The Backland is a MUCH lighter version of it's predecessor the Automatic, which is probably one of my favorite powder ski of all time. This new version is lighter, stiffer and has a more of a tapered rocker profile than the Automatic. Great ski if you want to do touring and equally good if you want to tear down steeper power filled terrain at your local resort.

    While the Backland doesn't have the power of the old Automatic, this incarnation is more stable at speed, sufry and also a little stiffer than the old Automatic. If you're a bigger skier or an aggressive skier, this ski should be on your radar because it's going to have the backbone to support you when you're in deeper snow.

    Took these on a cat-skiing trip in Northern Utah after 30-inches of fresh snow fell in a span of 3 days. These things float like no one's business and is super stable in deep snow. I was kinda surprised at how my legs didn't tire after doing 1,200 feet of vertical.

    I'm 5'11, 200LBS and skied the 193 (really 191cm) and these handled higher angle terrain beautifully but was a little cumbersome on lower angle tree filled terrain. If you're going to do lower angle stuff or a lot of tree-filled touring runs, I'd go with the 186cm. But if you're going to do steeper resort / back bowl type skiing go with the 193cm. Not the best carving skis, but this ski is designed to do one thing well - float. Great combination of lightweight construction, stability and float.
