Pete Swenson: Adventure Skiing, Ultra-light Gear and Ski Mountaineering Racing
Pete Swenson is an icon in the Colorado backcountry skiing world. Swenson comes from a long line of skiers - his brother came in 4th place in nordic ski racing in the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics - and Pete is arguably the most accomplished ski mountaineering racer in U.S. history. Pete still races and is the organizer of the Colorado Ski Mountaineering Cup. He's a rep for Dynafit and a wealth of information about taking very light ski gear into the backcountry. Pete is passionate about going way into the backcountry and skiing lines that are simply too difficult to access with heavy gear. He'll discuss some of the most remote ski destinations in Colorado, the COSMIC series and offer tips to lighten your gear and beat the crowds.
