Welcome to the new millennium.
Say your farewells to the tracked-out crud left over by the boys. It's time to ride your Atomic Millennium Skis into a new untracked era where the boys chase you for table scraps. The huge Powder Rocker floats and surfs the deeps while the Step Down sidewall and underfoot camber bite the hardpack.
- Atomic's Powder Rocker features 20% lift in the tip, 20% lift in the tail, and 60% camber underfoot so you float and surf effortlessly yet can bite back when you need to
- The high-grade full wood core absorbs shock and vibration while making the ski snappy and responsive
- Half-Cap construction in the tip and tail protects the ski from damage while the Step Down sidewall construction underfoot absorbs shock and increases edge grip
- 110mm underfoot make this thick-stick a floater without making it impossible to get back to the lifts

It was Valentine's Day and I was sick of the GF complaining about her skis. I knew these would be the perfect the fit for her style of skiing. The perfect balance between camber and rocker for her. She hates the surfy feeling of full rockered powder skis and the nice thing about these is that they still let you lock into a turn on hardpack but have a generous rocker to make soft snow a breeze. Everyday out on them she comes back happy rather than complaining about her gear like she used to. That makes it a 5 star in my book
These skis are amazing in all conditions. I do some backcountry skiing but mostly ski on resort on hiking accessed ridge terrain. Not only do these skis float on the powder, but they are easy to manauver on tight turns and sketchy traverses. They are light to carry and make hiking a breeze. They also power through the crud and make great turns on the groomers. If you're looking for a true powder ski that function as all-mountain ski this is it. I went for the 169 (longer than my previous ski) and I'm glad I did. The rocker on the tip and tip makes these skis easy to turn. These are super fun, playful skis!
I grabbed this ski for a dedicated touring set up. I was concerned that it might be on the heavy side, but turns out it is an EXCELLENT choice. I mounted up some Dynafit Radicals on them, and the weight is just fine. I was pretty concerned about weight since I am a smaller skier and have trouble keeping up with the guys because my little legs are so short.
This ski was awesome on the uphill, the tail rocker isn't so extreme so I had no problems skinning up.
We skied some scary crust to corn and I was pleased with the ski's performance. I noticed they have a very low swing weight and are really easy to maneuver. Had I not been touring, I would definitely be happier with sizing up to a longer length.
I did try them on-piste groomer at Snowbird and they were very responsive and easy to initiate a turn up onto the edges.
Finally found some fresh powder on a couple tours this week. These skis surf just fine, had a great time. I can say with a high degree of confidence that I'm STOKED on this ski for touring. It's nimble shape, light weight and girth make it a great touring ski.
With a Dynafit tech binding, this ski makes an excellent choice for touring.
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
the perfect amount of girth, rocker, and stiffness, this ski is stable as they come. i skied on it twice in wind-buffed and high-density pow, and it took almost no time to break in. speedy, grippy, and floaty--instant love if where you live has deep snow and steeps.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I love these things, they are great for all sorts of conditions. I ride these with the XXL Rosignol FKS'. The perfect set-up
How much do they weigh?
yeah, how much do they weigh?
Even the peeps at Atomic didn't get back to me. I guess downhill ski companies don't need to keep a close eye on weights.
I'm just guessing, but the 169cm length isn't more than about 7lbs per pair.
These skis have gone everywhere with me. Hut trips in BC, Norway, South America, New Zealand, and then back home to Mt. Baker to ski deep and deeper pow. The Millennium is a great one-quiver women's ski as it performs well in all types of conditions--deep powder, pillow lines, and all the variable conditions in between. On a recent trip to Chile and Argentina, the Millennium was the only ski in my bag. I always judge a ski by the way it performs in South America, a place where you can find deep powder and extremely variable conditions. The Millennium was an ideal choice everyday of my trip. The rocker makes it a ripping ski in pow, but it still performs on hard pack and icy conditions at the resort. The Millennium is the ski that goes everywhere with me!! Especially in the Mt. Baker backcountry on those days of fresh, stable, snowy lines.
