“Skinning to skiing” Skimo Transition - Manual for Ski Mountaineering Racing


by Michael Hagen January 27, 2016

“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...

Big thank you goes to three great companies with passion for skimo racing:
