Has nobody ever riden this ski before??

Atomic's "SNOOP DADDY"

192cm length. measures: 130/95/119 @24m radius.

It is NOT the same as this years' SNOOP ski. they have different measurements and atomics' website doesn't even list them as current models.

I'm looking for the difference that can be expected when i first strap em on..


I am transistioning from Atomic Beta-Carve skis that are pure stiff front-side hard/ice fast fast fast carvers. They have around a 60 something mm underfoot. Can anyone tell me what I can expect and what I might have to do (TECHNIQUE WISE) to handle these big boys?

I can't wait to find a powder field and a tree run! Might even hit a jump or two now that i dont have the equivalent of 2 long sheets of fast SUPER STIFF steel under me.


Thanks all!

 they are way easier going than alot of skis out there, but still require a outside ski biased technique. Id sell my 192cm with PX14tis for 400 bucks if you want them.

they rip everywhere but east coast trees. in your technique you just have to realize you have to add some of your own steering to them and just be patient till you get them up to speed.
