2015 skis are in the house ...
 

New skis, boots and accessories have arrived in the house .... and we have set up the shop for winter. Just when we thought that skis couldn't get any better ... they have! The new aspect of this is really the mainstream emergence of the negative rocker concept on these fatties ... check out the Atomic Automatic 117, the Atomic Atlas, the Dynastar Cham series, the Scott Punisher, and of course the Volkl Shiro!

The award-winning Dynastar CHAM 107 delivers high-performance freeride versatility for excelling in the most demanding terrain and snow conditions. Cham's combination of long tip rocker, 5-point sidecut, and real-deal titanal sandwich construction delivers incredible power, maneuverability and float.

The unique flat/pintail design enhances tip float in the deepest snow conditions, offers instant speed control for phenomenal ease-of-use, and provides all-mountain power, tracking and stability that redefines "freeride" performance. 

Built in the heart of Chamonix, the Cham 107 is also available in the lightweight "HM" construction for a more nimble and accessible feel whether skiing all-mountain or backcountry touring.

the Atomic Tracker is here!
 

The next generation of backcountry bindings, the Atomic Tracker 16 provides the power, precision and on-snow feel of a high-performance freeride binding, with the benefits of a very convenient hiking system.

Atomic's engineers and athletes wanted to create an Alpine Touring binding that sat low to the ski, could handle being mounted on a wide ski and was not only easy to switch between ski and tour but was also very secure.
