Tips on quick skin-track transitions from Team Crested Butte

Mar. 9th 2012

Rando racers have many things in their bag of tricks, not the least of which is how to handle quick transitions, whether at switchbacks on skin tracks on how to turn it around fast from uphill to downhill mode at the top.

Check out this video from SCARPA- and Ski Trab-sponsored Team Crested Butte, filmed at the recent Race the Divide event, part of the Cosmic Race Series. Racers and team members Jari Kirkland and Bryan ‘Wick’ Wickenhauser show how it’s done. Now you may say, a skin suit’s not for me, but whether you’re a randonee racer or a BC skier, you can always learn a trick or to make sure you’re the first down that untracked line.
