Skimo is a Thing

Ever heard of Skimo? It just happened at Marmot Basin

A gruelling ski touring type of ski racing that involves skinning up hills and skiing downhill terrain. A group of skimo participants did a hardcore track at Marmot Basin. If you have ever skied Marmot, you would say these guys and gals are hardcore! The images below are taken by Art Jackson on one of the transition zones on the hill.
