Rando Race

 Bromley welcomes the NE Rando Race Series – a multiple-venue rando race (aka, ski mountaineering, uphill/downhill, “skimo”) – back to the Sun Mountain for their mid-March event.

Rando – short for randonnée – ski racing hearkens back to skiing’s early years, when skiers challenged the mountain both up and down, without the help of chairlifts. Using climbing “skins” with alpine touring or telemark bindings (or even “split” snowboards), racers start at the base of the mountain, ascend it, then descend it, as fast as possible, over multiple laps, up to 6,000′ cumulative vertical, in the truest test of the most complete skier overall.
