Atomic Vantage 85 W ski review, 2017/2018 women's All-Mountain Front Category, from our equipment experts at powered by Masterfit.

There’s nothing in its makeup to suggest Atomic's Vantage 85 W should be able to hang with the hoity-toity crowd of feature-laden prima donna skis that dominate the guest list at the All-Mountain Front cotillion. Yet here she is, dressed in a plain garb of poplar and fiberglass, nothing fancier than a square sidewall underfoot. Yet this women's ski is still unintimidated by the glitzy crowd around her. If the Vantage 85 W seeks out a younger set, one with more ambition than assets, so what? For the lighter, perhaps younger skier, the Atomic Vantage 85 W is spot on and skis responsively to light pressure, unconcerned about off-trail conditions so long as they aren’t too gnarly. Any ski lacking an A rating for Power isn’t going to hum along at Autobahn speeds, but not every skier is engaged in a race to the bottom. “Great ski for the price point!” raved Lisa from Footloose of the Atomic Vantage 85 W. “It outperforms others that cost more. Sturdy, stable and forgiving, it offers the best bang for the buck.”
