Ski Mountaineering

What is Ski Mountaineering?

Ski Mountaineering, also knows as "SkiMo" combines the endurance of a cross-country skier with the skill and strength of an alpine skier.   This is great sport for current and former alpine, cross-country athletes, and all mountain and big mountain skiers.  There are a variety of race distances and styles.

  • Uphill only (25 min to 1h)
  • Multiple ascents and descents (1h- multi-hour)
  • Team Relay races (12-16m per leg)
  • Team of 2 or 3 traveling & racing together (3h+ to multi-day stage)
  • Sprint race combining all the skills under (4min in heats and finals like cross country skiing)

Our Purpose

The primary objective of Park City Ski Mountaineering team is to develop both the skills and passion for ski touring and ski mountaineering. In doing so, we hope to foster a lifelong love for both the outdoors and sport. Skiers will optimize specific ski mountaineering skills and fitness to develop enjoyment and proficiency in the sport.

I grew up here in Park City, and call this town home with my family. I love being out on skis, and I am excited to share ski mountaineering here in Park City!
