WHAT: Uphill Skiing WHERE: Statewide WHY: Earn your turns by foregoing the chair lift and skinning (aka uphill skiing) to the top of the run. The activity is gaining in popularity and while it involves special bindings, boots and skins (which you slip over your skis to help you get to the top), you’ll save money on lift tickets, as many ski resorts across the state give uphill skiers free access. Before you strap in and skin up, be sure to check the rules at the resort or wherever you plan to skin.
