Scotland the best: Skimo

Written by Fiona October 28 2014

Have you heard of Skimo? To give it its Sunday name, Skimo is ski mountaineering racing. And Skimo Scotland is a big name in the sport in this country.

You can check out Skimo Scotland. Note that the owner, Di Gilbert, is away to climb some massive mountain in Nepal for four weeks from November 7 but will be back in action in December when the Scottish snow will (hopefully) arrive.
