25min documentaries from Pierra Menta 2012 and Tour du Rutor 2012

Every two or three years we get great documentaries that capture the beautiful essence of our sport. Usually, they are from skimo’s two biggest stage races – Pierra Menta and Tour du Rutor.

Find half an hour on two evenings and make sure to watch these two. They are full of in-action shots, aerial footage and interviews. There is one hook though, they are in French.

Pierra Menta 2012 – 25min

If you don’t have time for the whole clip then just watch only 20 seconds – from 16:30 to 16:50 – and you will breathe the amazing atmosphere.

Tour du Rutor 2012 – 27min

Training Plans for Skimo Racing

Skimo Racing Manual


  1. I know – I can still wish though… :)

  2. That’s a shame that an event like in Europe could not be at Whistler. Its the prefect setting for race, let alone a World Cup event?

  3. Glad you guys enjoyed the videos as well. It’s a great insight into the core of ski mountaineering racing.

    Eric – skimo race hosted on Whistler-Blackcomb (WB) is almost impossible. Last time they wanted couple of grand for letting you use the hill for an event! Also, why PM (or other Euro races) can have starts/finishes in the village is because the community and businesses (local resort + others) deeply care about a ski mountaineering event, I am not so sure about that in Whistler ;)

  4. Hey Super video on Pierra Manta. Enjoyed this very much.

  5. Sweet!

    Lots of green boots on the start line.

    We need a race that starts in a village – Whistler?
