A fun ski mountaineering race for all levels and ages based at Fernie Alpine Resort. Slap your touring skins on, grab a stick of juicy fruit, cause this event will really groove ya!
The idea is as simple as racing in alpine terrain through a series of climbs and descents using ski touring gear, and skins. Splitboarders are also welcome to race in their own category. The fast-growing popularity of this new sport has opened a discussion which may see it feature Winter Olympics.
The Lizard Skinner Skimo race is an all-inclusive event for everybody from first timers to recreational to competitive racers. This 2-day event now features a sprint race on Sunday. Or if you want you can just do one of the 2 days, you pick! A great event to challenge yourself and others. So bring a friend and get your Ski Mo on!
