“Skinning to skiing” transition, also known as the “skins off” transition”, is one of the very basic skimo racing skills any athlete should try to master as soon as possible. 25 seconds is too slow, 20 is getting fast.

This video provides you with all the instructions and tips for mastering this basic skimo transition – locking your boots, taking skins off, stepping into your bindings, and skiing off.

This video is part of a bigger project called “Manual for Ski Mountaineering Racing” produced by SkinTrack.com - http://www.skintrack.com/skimo-racing...

Why Wide Skis Aren't Good for Your Knees – or Technique

September 03, 2019 6 min read

Very interesting, if somewhat obvious, research showing the disadvantage of overly wide skis.

The scourge of wide skis hit much harder here than in Europe, which is why lazy “drifting” (promoted as “smearing” - a good thing!! - by companies like DPS) is so evident here. Americans can’t edge their skis!!
