Vantage 97 C Ski
Atomic's Women's Vantage 97 C Ski is the perfect blend of lightness, strength, and versatility. Perfect for intermediate to advanced lady shredders who want one ski to do it all, the 97-millimeter waist and rockered tip and tail thrives when the snow is deep and fresh, and underfoot camber and an approachable shape makes it charge like a champ on hardpack when the storm doesn't deliver.
To construct such a light, approachable ski, Atomic started with a minimalist profile and added strength in the areas of the ski that need it the most. The poppy poplar core keeps the Vantage 97 damp and stable, and carbon mesh from tip to tail ensures full-length stiffness for a smooth feel. Complete with full sidewalls for extra stability and superior edge hold on hardpack, this ski is your key to unlocking all-mountain fun, no matter what the conditions.

- Q & A
I'm an Atomic employee and had the chance to demo these skis last winter, and I was impressed. With a not-so-great Utah winter last year, we kept to the groomers..and these ripped!
Vantage series is designed for versatile performance- one ski for all snow conditions and all terrain. The Vantage consumer loves to ski controlled turns on-piste but also gets inspired by the spirit of Freeski.

Recommended Sizing Guide
Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preffered style of skiing. For example, an expert skier on in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
