About Climbing Skins
Climbing Skins, also known as ski skins, attach to your backcountry skis via a temporary adhesive. The other side of the skins are covered in either hair or a synthetic hair like fiber that, when you run your has along it, feels smooth one way and rough the opposite way. This allows your skis to get traction when you're climbing uphill, but glide when going downhill. We carry the best climbing skin models from Black Diamond, Dynafit, and G3.
