A super versatile everyday ski for adapting to the powder-to-crud-to-mank evolution.
- IQ Max Slider permits 7cm of adjustability for different binder positioning and acts as an interface between the ski and any binding you wish to attach that week; alpine, AT, or telemark
- Your binding attaches to the slider and locks easily into place—extra sliders sold separately
- A 59mm wide channel in the binding zone (where the slider locks into place) allows quick power transfer to the edges, which means it skis like a skinny ski
- The IQ-Max Sandwich Compound Sidewall construction utilizes World Cup racing technology, creating a fast but easy-to-turn ski with excellent edge grip

Fun in the trees
I demoed these skis at Jay Peak. Great reaction in the bumps, plenty of float and maneuverability in the trees (No deep stuff to try them out on), and outright awesome on the groomers. A bit slow to initate on the groomers but I attribute that to the fact that I am coming off a 168 Volkl that turns on a dime. Once engaged these fat boys were as stable as you could possibly want. Fun rde.
Q: 187 or 180 Blizzard Atlas for me: 6'...
Q: 187 or 180 Blizzard Atlas for me: 6' 205# L8/10, using as most-of-the time ski in CO. (Winter Park, Copper, Steamboat, Vail, etc.)
Prefer stability over twitchy, and the 187 is right at head height. Like a mix of groomed, trees, bowls, but am wondering if the 187 would be too much ski. Thanks. JB
I skied the 180cm last weekend on groomed and trees at Jay Peak (6'1" 240# L8/10) and loved them - perfect length coming of 168cm Volkls.
187 for sure... 180 will be fine on groomed but anything off piste will be a little unstable. I'm almost the exact same height and weight and prefer the 187.
I demo'd some 173's in calf-deep pow (then crud later) in CO and they were very stable and quick. I'm 6'2", 198. Bought the 180's for a little extra float. Didn't want the extra 7 cm in the bumps and trees
I'm 6'2", 195. 180's are perfect.
