Adventure Skate Skiing (ASS) is skate skiing in non-traditional areas. These include snowmobile tracks and wind-crusted meadows. This guide emphasizes ASS skiing on groomed snowmobile trails. These trails provide an alternative to the goldfish syndrome, i.e., skiing in multiple loops around the same (short) trails.
ASS offers challenging terrain, breathtaking mountain scenery, and unparalleled solitude –– as long as you obey ASS Rule #1 (see the Introduction). Check it out and head for the hills.
Adventure Skate Skiing is skate skiing in non-traditional areas. This includes skiing on snowmobile tracks or through open meadows where the wind and cold often set up a nice layer of crust on old snow.
Short of killing yourself by slamming into a tree at 30 mph, encountering a snowmobile is the single worst thing that can happen to you while ASS skiing.
The Fish Lake Snow Park is the gateway to 185 miles (that's 296 kilometers) of groomed snowmobile trails, aka, ASS Trails.
