  1. Hey,
    I’m looking for new all mountain skis. The Atomic Elysian have caught my eye as have the K2 Missdemeanors. I ski mostly in the tress, hunt for powder and not much in the park. I am an intermediate skier. Most of my skiing has been done off piste in powder and corn. I love how the Atomic Century’s ski, and like the K2 Gotbacks (but prefer the Century’s) and am looking for some input on which of the above I may prefer. Ski area: Western Canada.

  2. Hello, and congratulations for this test, it’s really interesting.

    My girlfriend just bought these skis, and I don’t understand one sentence that seems important in your test,
    What do you mean by :” you’ll just need to detune the tips and tails.” (after your first run).
    I’m french, and my english isn’t really good… Translators are very funny, but don’t really help me !!!
    I suppose tips and tails are the two extremities (twintip), but don’t understand what to do !!!

    Thanks for your explanations.

    • Grumf,
      If your girlfriend finds the front of the ski to be a touch unpredictable and grabby, take a tuning stone and soften (round) the edges of the ski from the tip to about 5-7cm beyond the widest point of the tip toward the bindings.
      If she finds the rear of the ski is difficult to push around when trying to skid a turn, do the same rounding of the edge to the rear portion of the ski.

  3. It seems to me like atomic built the century to be a little more powder oriented, but am not sure how different these two skis are. I’m looking for my wifes first pair of skis…she’s a hard charging snowboarder who learns quickly and we traditionally spend most of our time off piste. What would you recommend and why?

  4. Would you recommend these for a lady who hasn’t skied in 10-15 years? I’d rather avoid getting her a “beginner” type ski and find her something easier to use that she can progress into. We’re mostly at Tremblant with refrozen/icy, normal eastern snow.

  5. I’m trying to find a recommendation for a binding for this Elysian ski. I’m 120 lbs naked. Ordered the 159cm ski. Advance intermediate skill level. Currently on Atomic B5Is and love them.
    Thank you for the help!

  6. Is the Elysian the new Atomic 95C Womens with a flatter non twinned tail ? What does Blister think of the Atomic Century 109 for Women ? I think this is girls version of the Atomic Automatic 109….I bought my wife the 95CW for All Mtn….want to get her a new powder ski and am looking at the Century 109 and the Moment Bella….she has a Bella in a 162 which is short..fine for tight spots but will be too short for open areas and her increasing ability so looking at 175cm Atomic Century vs. Bella 172….The Atomic Century 109 is available for $349 for last yrs model…$449 this yrs model….the Bella is $569 or so on sale….that 349 is looking pretty good unless I hear STOP !! I would rather support Moment and I have Bibby’s too but $200 is a lot. Wife is 5’4 135lbs dry…advanced skier – directional – no switch – age 46 and improving skillset wise rapidly as she took 10 yrs away from skiing then marries me and now goes all the time including summer glacier skiing at Mt>Hood we ski PNW and Utah

    Thanks Ladies for any input,

    Guy :)
