Description

A big-mountain charger for ladies.

You've been skiing as hard and fast as any of the guys for long enough, so it's about time boot manufacturers made a women's boot that stands up to the rigors of abuse as well as any men's big-mountain boot. The Women's Waymaker Carbon 100 Ski Boot from Atomic does all that, while still maintaining a women-specific fit and feel. Carbon spines through the shell and cuff add rigidity and increase responsiveness on the mountain. The 101mm last width is roomy enough that you won't feel as if you need to lose a toe, but still performance-oriented enough so won't feel like you're sliding around on an ice rink all day. To help keep you out there during cold snaps and early mornings, Atomic used its Gold liner that features 3M Thinsulate Platinum synthetic insulation for enhanced warmth. Three buckles securely hold your feet in place, and the DIN-certified, rubber-lugged soles securely hold your feet on the ground while you walk through the parking lot or hike to secret stashes.

  • Medium flex, 100
  • Carbon spines in shell and cuff
  • 101mm last width
  • Gold liner with 3M Thinsulate Platinum synthetic insulation
  • Three Triad 6000 buckles
  • 15-degree forward lean angle
  • Ski/walk mode with 35-degree cuff rotation
  • DIN-certified, rubber-lugged soles

Great touring boot!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This boot has been my go to touring boot for the last year and a half. While I have a rather small foot, the smallest boot offered in this model is slightly on the larger side, but it is great for a cushy comfortable ride in the backcountry. Love that they have the optional tech toe insert as well as the regular toe with rubber soles! Have gone on some very long missions with these boots and have never had any issues with blisters or discomfort. Lightweight and perform great downhill!

Love Hate Relationship

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After cycling through a couple pairs of "hybrid resort" boots I settled on these Atomics as the best of the ones I had tried. That said, these boots have unfortunately confirmed my fear that I might prefer specialized boots: a pair of stiff chargers for the resort and a cushy AT backcountry pair. (I haven't tried the Lange hybrid boots yet though...)

Every time I do big all-day tours (or morning laps) I love these boots. They are so, so comfortable and I've never experienced hotspots or blisters, even after ten hours and long flat approaches and couloir bootpacks. That blows my mind. They aren't too heavy (but I am coming from a non-tech perspective) and the sixth-toe soft spot that Atomic does is really a great design feature. I can't give these up because, wow.

BUT. At the resort they throw in the towel after four laps. Every single time. They ski well on any given day for longer than some of the really objectionably squishy women's boots, but there is a discernible breaking point and once it happens, driving the ski becomes way more challenging, especially on chop and high-speed groomers. I've fiddled a lot with the buckles and the cant but it seems like the only solution is to use stiff Intuition liners for the resort and stick with what works in the backcountry.
