Training Plans for Skimo Racing

Skimo Racing Manual


  1. Hi Thierry,
    there will be a big skimo race in Golden, BC (traditionally the Canadian champs) in mid-March. Then about a week later another one in Lake Louise, AB. Others are still in the works.
    From my experience, very few resorts are interested in skimo races. There are various reasons for this but by far it is about money, the argument being – it doesn’t fit with their business model. I can agree with that to certain extent but still they could show little more support since those are the roots of skiing.

  2. Any races happening in BC, that you may know about. Wish there where more in WA State. I had talk to Pete Swanson (Dynafit )at one time to have an event at Baker ski area. But Baker showed no interest.
