Crow’s Feet Commons, Deschutes Brewery and Dynafit have teamed up to present Central Oregon’s first Ski Mo Race Series for 2018.
SKI-MO (or ski mountaineering) is a skiing discipline that involves climbing mountains either on skis or carrying them, depending on the steepness of the ascent, and then descending on skis.
