French Ski Mountaineering Championships, Meribel

Individual ski mountaineering competition

Ski Mountainering, or SkiMo as it's also known, is basically uphill skiing. It's performance-oriented ski touring that combines different mountain(eering) skills whilst on skis.

Popular with many ultra runners, it combines endurance, technical skills and ski racing. Make no mistake, these athletes are insanely fit.

This is a great event where you'll see France’s top athletes compete in a vertical race and team event on Méribel’s pistes and peaks.

Watch the mass start and cheer on the contestants as they tackle gruelling climbs, tricky technical sections and daring off-piste descents on their course around les 3 Vallées.
