Video Report: U.S. Ski Mountaineering Championships in Jackson Hole

What is it about skiing…

What is it about skiing that drives us waaaay beyond that which would normally qualify as Best Practice, and what conventional wisdom would call reasonable.

We could all just rock comfy Bogner one-pieces while stem christie-ing perfect corduroy and act, like, civilized. But, no. That would be far too easy. Skiing’s siren song dares us to enter into some of the most dangerous environments and unreasonable situations imaginable…in skin suits. And we accept, willingly. In fact, we pay money for it.
