Review:

To start with, the conditions for this ski were not ideal, but the sensations and performance I got out of it were enough to give me a good idea what she likes to do. 

 

The Century is early rise tip and tail which makes for a ton of fun in the skied out area of the resort, and give you enough inspiration to put them over on edge on the groomers.  In fact I was a little surprised how much this ski gripped when I was on firm groomers. 

I'd really like to take them out in some spring corn.  I get a feeling she'd really shine in those conditions! 

This is a ski that performs well for a skier who wants to take charge, so click in and show the slopes you mean business.

Description:

With the Atomic Century for women, the sky's the limit in powder. Freeskier Caroline Gleich adores the Century: its 100 mm waist width and Powder Rocker ensure optimum lift, while the dual-layer Step Down sidewall construction and tip-to-tail wood core cushion shocks and hard landings. But freeskiers can enjoy much more than just effortless powder forays: thanks to a pronounced camber in the binding area, the Century also delivers optimum edge grip and precision control on hard snow. The perfect addition for efficient ascents are Atomic's new Century Pro Skins – bespoke skins made from 100% mohair for perfect grip and maximum glide phases.
