Tips for The Tour #2- Never Stop Moving

Weather its going out for a day's ski touring, a tramping trip, or at The Tour, one of the easiest ways of traveling fast is never standing still.
Some of the easiest and simplest ways to keep on the go is to keep a steady pace, use a drinking bladder, carry food in your pockets and stuff your skins down your top (so you never have to stop and take your pack off).
You could go the whole 9 yards and use super slick ski mountaineering race transitions also. These include 15sec or less skin off transitions, under 45sec skins on and the always impressive ski's on the pack with out stopping.
Check out the below video of Javi demonstrating how to quickly go from skinning to boot packing.

"The skier who forsakes the lifts to climb under his own power to a mountain summit is a very different person from the downhill only piste basher and is often regarded by the latter as something of a curiosity.
But he was the creator of the sport; and possibly with him lies the future"
-Robin Fedden, The book of Europen Skiing, 1966
