The Atomic Automatic made the top five in our 2013 on snow test in Kuhtai, Austria. It's most suited to deep powder snow conditions and would suit a seasonaire that either likes only skiing off-piste or has another ski in the closet for non-powder days.

Overall Score

The Automatic is a ski from the world’s largest ski manufacturer, Atomic.

It made our top five because in the deep powder, it’s smooth, easy to turn and fun to ski. In any other conditions it does not perform as well, scoring a decent 8 out of 10 for off-piste but only 5 out of 10 for groomed runs.

Still, it’s designed for powder and if that’s what you want it for then it’s certainly a great ski.

The serious looking tip rocker design didn't appeal to some of the older members of the team (like me!), but perhaps that’s just because this ski is made for younger skiers looking to spend seasons in search of the best powder snow conditions.

It would suit a good skier who wants something that makes skiing powder easy and will let them improve to a higher standard through a winter season.

Having another ski in the bag for on-piste or lighter conditions might be advantageous.
