Second inaugural Ski-Mo Race!
We are hosting Alaska's only ski mountaineering event in the Chugach Range at Alyeska Resort in partnership with AMH.
This is going to be a fun event- all abilities are encouraged to participate. There will be both a recreational/ beginner class and a racing class- registration for either is $30.00. Or $35 the day of the race. Cost does not include a lift-ticket. This is a FUNdraiser and all proceeds go toward the Alaska Avalanche School's mission to provide exceptional experience-based avalanche safety education to all users of the mountain environment.
This event will start and end at the Sitzmark. Registration and equipment check will be at 5:30 pm. Mandatory safety meeting at 6:15 pm. The races start at 6:30 pm.
NEW to SKI MOUNTAINEERING?
SKI MOUNTAINEERING, or "SkiMo", is neither skiing nor mountaineering, at least in the traditional sense. You have to use your skis or splitboard to go up, across, and sometimes over mountains.
