How to Buy Climbing Skins

Skin It to Win It
Alpine Touring Climbing Skins

Unless you enjoy slogging around in the snow on foot, climbing skins are the only way to go when you travel in the backcountry. Climbing skins attach to the bases of your skis and give you traction so you can step and slide uphill. Easy to attach and detach, skins are a simple, easy tool and a vital piece of backcountry ski equipment.

Material:

Skins are made of mohair, synthetics or a synthetic/mohair blend. Synthetics are durable and grippy, while mohair glides with superior speed and efficiency.

Attachment:

Clips at the tip and tail and sticky, non-permanent glue compound keep a skin attached to your ski. Most skins use clips that will universally attach to any ski, but some manufacturer-specific skins will only work with a few skis.

Length & Width:

Unless it’s manufactured specifically to fit your ski, you’ll need to buy a skin that’s longer and wider than your ski at its widest point (usually the tip) and trim it to fit. Most skins ship with an easy-to-use trimming tool and instructions.
