The Atomic Mountain Academy is a comprehensive online course to develop essential snow and mountain safety skills, helping you make smarter decisions every time you go off piste. Developed with the guys at WePowder, the Atomic Mountain Academy brings together some of the world's most elite mountain experts: official national authorities, top avalanche centers, mountain guides and experienced freeriders.
Through a series of high-quality videos across two modules they teach skiers how to judge snow conditions, how to read snow fall, different types of avalanche, equipment and mountain rescue. Viewers hear from the people who regularly go into the toughest situations the Backcountry can provide and what they do to get down safe. They’re then self-tested as they go – so they remember the information when they need it on the mountain.

Atomic was born in the Austrian Alps in 1955, and more than 60 years on we’re still here. Over the years our equipment has raced to the top of every ski podium, reached the peak of Everest, and taken on every type of skiing you could think of. We’ve helped skiers go higher in the half pipe, further in the backcountry, faster on piste and longer on the cross-country track.
And the secret to our success? The know-how and passion of our employees and athletes. Skiing is an essential part of our lives. It’s in our blood. And every product we make is fueled by this passion for the sport we all love.
Skiing doesn’t just shape how we design and deliver our products; it inspires and defines us. It always has and always will.
