Why skimo? From World Cup racing to fitness laps with friends, skimo can take many forms.
- For the fitness aspect of it. No need to even race to get a good workout. All you need is a lightweight pair of skis and somewhere to skin up and ski back down
- To satisfy the racer in you. Skimo is an IOC sport and the racing scene is deeper and deeper each Winter in North America. There even are world cups and world championships!
- To become a more efficient backcountry skier. Skimo racing requires good skinning skills, fast transitions and a decent ski level. Have you ever transitioned from skinning to skiing in less than a minute? Skimo athletes can do it in less than 20 seconds!
