Mammut raises some hype for backcountry ski touring, with a short ski video about siblings getting out where there are no lifts and no rules.

There’s nothing like waking up, getting coffee, slipping into your ski gear, slapping on your skins, and hitting the trail. The freedom to go anywhere, to ski almost any line on any mountain, is exhilarating.

Those mornings give you butterflies. And that’s the feeling you get from this Mammut ski video, Make our own rules. No chairlift required.

It’s a short edit, but it sums up the beauty of alpine touring. Sharing moments out of bounds with people you love and trust. Getting out before sunrise to seize the day and crush a skin track. Beholding the winter world from the top of a mountain — then the descent.

It’s all about making your own rules — no chairlifts required. No program or agenda to follow. Just fresh air to breathe, and mountains to ski. Those are the best days.

This short video clip packs a punch. It also features some of the 2022-2023 ski touring apparel and equipment from Mammut. So if you see something you like, you can head over to the Mammut ski touring webpage and check it out.
