Each year we head to the mountains to test out dozens of skis for the upcoming season. This year we spent a week at Powder Mountain, Utah, in search of fresh turns and the best new skis for 2017. We were excited to test out the Atomic Backland 109 skis, and they didn’t disappoint. We loved the tapered tips and fun performance in fresh powder. Watch to see what else impressed us about these skis.
