The Good

  • Easy swingweight for short or long radius turns
  • Binding system designed to fit a woman’s body mechanics

The Bad

  • You’ll get bucked into the back seat at high speeds
THE VERDICT

A great choice for intermediate to expert women who spend 60 percent of their time on hardpack and 40 percent off-piste.

FULL REVIEW

Atomic’s Affinity Storm handled steeps and crud with unexpected confidence, but this ski really excelled on hardpack, where it truly belongs.

Float
You’ll get through a little bit of powder OK thanks to a slightly rockered tip, but keep this ski benched on big storm days.

Versatility
Sure, it’s got a narrow waist meant for groomers, but this ski dominated in crud and chopped snow, too.

Length
Atomic’s Affinity Storm comes in three, well-suited lengths: 151, 159, 167.
