The Atomic Vantage 95 C is a great all mountain ski for the intermediate to advanced skier that will spend half of their time skiing off trail and half of the time skiing on trail. Atomic's new Carbon Tank Mesh Construction does a fantastic job of making a ski extremely stable and powerful, without increasing the total weight of the ski. The Carbon Tank Mesh is a woven structure that sits on top of the Light Wood Core that increases torsional and lateral strength for plowing through powder or crud on the backside, and giving you great carving ability for the frontside. The Vantage 95 has Atomic's new Firewall Construction that is extra thick underneath the binding platform with flex groves that provide you with power transmission on the groomers. Rocker in the tip of the ski will keep you on top of the fresh snow, absorb negative vibrations caused by crud, and initiate turns efficiently. Camber underfoot will increase the amount of rebound and edge hold you have. Rocker in the tail of the Vantage 95 will improve the soft snow skiing ability, and release you from turns with less effort. The 95mm waist will be surprisingly maneuverable when you want to bang out quick turns, and give you all the flotation you need. When you want the perfect ski for any day, and can only choose one, choose the Atomic Vantage 95 C.
Q: My daughter is an all mountain skier in the northeast, but definitely spends a good amount of time in the park for fun. Would this ski be OK to run the rails and a few fun runs a day in the park too?

A: I would mount these skis on the factory recommendation center point that is marked on the ski, or if you will be skiing switch, or like a little faster turn initiation you can move it up a centimeter or two. Those lines are also clearly marked on the top sheet.
