Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

For those who can't manage 3 skis, one for every condition, this is a great option. And can we pause a minute and just admire the top sheet and base color?? If you are looking for an all mountain ski that will still float on those deeper days I would recommend the Century 102. Solid ski in variable snow conditions, hard pack, or even deeper pow.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs small

These sandals were WAY small when I got them. So narrow I could't even get my foot in... That being said I promptly just got a mens version in the same color. And they are Awesome! I wear these every day and they just get more comfortable. I do have a wide foot so if you are like me, grab a mens. They look the same.

Fit: True to size

...two things every girl wants in ski pants! These have a great fit and look great too! The ventilation zips keep you cool while hiking and are on the inner and outer thigh. Definitely need extra layers underneath when the temperature drops. Durable cuffs and knee reinforcement. These pants do saturate in really wet conditions, however. The PNW has put these through the wringer and for what you get in breathability and stretch you lose in waterproof. Otherwise, love 'em!

I love the Waymaker line from Atomic. I have a wide foot and have always struggled with fit in women's boots. These boots have plenty of room in the toe box which is perfect for backcountry hiking. I generally like a more relaxed ski boot fit as well (as opposed to a race boot). Out of the box, with no work done I took these boots out for a volcano tour and returned without a hot spot or blister. Props to Atomic for great comfort out of the box. As far as performance, the boots ski great. They have a stiff flex while skiing yet are easily switched over to walk mode.

For me, this ski has been my lightweight touring ski. Paired with a Dynafit binding and Atomic Waymaker Touring boot I am set to easily cruise up the skin track. The rocker in the tip still allows float in deeper snow while the 100mm waist width maintains stability and easy turn initiation in icy or variable conditions. The flat tail makes throwing skins on easy. If I am headed up a volcano or on a long adventure, these are the skis I grab.

I love having a "go to" ski. One that you don't really have to think about, if its snowing you know its going to be a fun ride. That is this ski. Super fun in the pow and stable in variable conditions.

I ride the 179cm with the Atomic tracker binding and have found the two to be a good combo. When I first tried this ski I was impressed with the ski's maneuverability. Larger skis can be intimidating because it is a lot of ski to get around. However, the Millennium is surprisingly easy to ski and has no problem floating in the pow. Because of the rocker I would urge buyers to go a titch longer than you usually would and maintain the standard mount to get the full use of the ski's camber.
