Basic Ski Mountaineering Race Gear and Ski Rando Technique Explained

Ski Rando Race Gear

Thanks to being inundated with questions about ski rando race gear all winter, we put together a short video to explain what I’ve learned racing in Europe. I am by no means an expert, but I was immersed in the Euro race scene all season and managed to do well in some races, including the famous Sellaronda.

The goal of this video is to introduce Americans to the gear used in Europe. From what I have seen in parts of the US, the interest is soaring – yet everyone asks…… “What gear do you use and where do we get it?”

Hopefully this video helps – Bear with my awkwardness, I am used to being on the other side of the lens.

  1. I was wondering where I can find the sling for sticking your skis on your back?
    I looked on mountain gear but couldn’t find it.
    Thanks,
    Mark

      1. Montura is truly phenomenal ! Their gear is perfectly thought out and practically intended for the actual task without unecessary bells and whistles.

        BTW do you have any experiece with their SkiSky insulation jacket ?

            My mistake… Yes, of course I have used it but thought the name was different, I own two, my wife one, it is without a doubt the best synthetic jacket I have used. Form fitting, lightweight, and the hood is absolutely designed perfectly. It isn’t so warm, but considering the weight of the jacket, and if layered properly, it is ideal for skiing or doing anything active in icey temps.
