Call it skinning, uphilling, ski mo or randonnee....whatever the case, we're talking about hiking uphill with skis and skins (with the goal often being just to get some fresh air and exercise) ... followed with a rewarding, brisk ski descent.
We like to call it fitness skiing and, within the ski industry, it's a niche exploding with new interest and high-tech gear. The equipment used by Fitness Skiers is often the same that backcountry ski tourers are using, and our guides are available to help highlight the latest skills and techniques for enhanced economy of motion and equipment familiarization and optimization.
Whether your interests are strictly skinning up & skiing down Aspen Highlands or other ski resort or taking a ski tour further afield into the winter backcountry, we can help you along on your way.
