The ski/ snowboard mountaineering concept is simple: climb up and ski or snowboard down. On what mountain lines is this possible? This is only limited by your skills, the conditions at the time and amount of risk you’re willing to take. After all, K2 has recently been skied. It takes judgement, climbing, avalanche and route assessment skills to ski the ideal line.
Many strong riders lack the skills to make skiing the lines they want a reality or they’re taking bigger risks than they are aware of when they do them. The top riders, along with their strong riding skills, also have judgement, climbing, avalanche and route assessment skills. You need all of these to ride the best possible lines with enough safety margin.
