Hey, rippers: How does a fat wad of cash in your pocket sound? If you can stomach the intermediate label (gulp), you’ll get all the ski for half the price. With Atomic’s perfect blend of strength and agility, the Cloud 7 holds up remarkably well for all but the heaviest, strongest experts. Our testers wondered why any expert would need to pay more, yet praised the unerring forgiveness that made it the top ski in our Intermediate category. In other words, it’s easy—on the legs and the bank account.
