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)

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.
