Check out this rarely seen footage, a classic #TBT from our friends at the old Coulair Magazine / Earn Your Turns documenting the first organized skimo race in North America.

"In May 1995, Peter Chrzanowski organized "North America's first-ever ski mountaineering race," the three-day Thule Multiglisse Traverse, in the British Columbia Coast Range near Pemberton. "Most observers agree the Multiglisse Traverse was an organizational fiasco." Of six teams, only one finished the course. Four air evacuations were required, including one for Chrzanowski, who broke his leg.

What we're all about

COSMIC - The Colorado Ski Mountaineering Cup was founded in 2007. The COSMIC series mission is to promote competitive ski mountaineering events in the Rocky Mountains. COSMIC events connect mid week and weekend events with sponsors and participants. Most events include a "Recreation" category distance of approximately 2,500' as well as a "Race" distance from 4,000' to 8,000"+ for longer events. COSMIC conducts skimo clinics in the early winter as well as at many events to introduce new participants to the sport. COSMIC Facebook and Twitter feeds are updated often with current event and clinic information. Look around the site, find a race or clinic and get out there! We look forward to seeing you on snow.
