What is ski mountaineering
Ski mountaineering, or also known as downhill skiing, is a ski mountaineering sport that is practiced off the equipped slopes through the use of mountaineering skis. These particular skis are equipped with bindings that allow the heel to be freed, facilitating the ascent, and from the “seal skins“, which is a band of synthetic fabric that is adhesive on one side and covered with textile fiber on the other. Applied under the skis, it allows them to slide forward without sliding back. Finally, ski poles, which facilitate both ascent and descent, are also required for ski mountaineering.
