What is Skimo?
Skimo is a winter sport also referred to as competitive or endurance Mountaineering. The end goal being to ascent a mountain, on skis, as quickly as possible in a timed race format. It is a physically demanding sport that also requires intense planning as well as focused mental strength.
An already-established sport in Europe, Skimo has recently become more recognized and popular in the United States. The discipline aligns well with cross-country skiers, backcountry enthusiasts and endurance sport athletes looking to cross train throughout the winter.
