2015/2016 Atomic Vantage 95 CW ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its women’s All-Mountain Back Category, awarding it an Editors’ Choice.

A new women’s all-mountain ski from Atomic, the Vantage 95 CW “floats well, smears easily and initiates turns smoothly,” according to Abbe. Testers gave the 95-mm-waisted ski high marks for stability and float. That blend between hardpack stability and lightness in soft snow is aided by a construction that includes a light wood core and Carbon Tank Mesh—a layer of strong yet lightweight woven carbon running the length of the ski. As with other skis in the Vantage line, the 95 CW has full “Firewall” sidewalls plus tip and tail rocker. “Take advantage of the Vantage,” quips Muecke. “This is for the one-quiver girl looking for a lively, nimble, fun ski for the whole mountain.”
