What is Randonee? Randonee, also known as Alpine Touring, refers to a type of skiing in which you ascend the mountain using your own power with the aid of special bindings and “skins”, a Velcro like material that sticks to the snow. A Randonee Race involves “skinning” up a set track and then racing down a designated course. The winner is the person who completes the course in the least amount of time.
