What is backcountry skiing ?
skitour.guru Michal Bulička Apr 9, 2016 English
Ski mountaineering is hiking on skis. It takes place in the mountains, similarly to summer hiking but instead of outdoor boots you put on ski boots with special bindings and skis with climbing skins. The goal usually is to climb a selected peak and then go down on skis, if possible in powder snow or other type of snow suitable for skiing.
