About the Ski Mountaineering

Founded in 2007, the International Ski Mountaineering Federation ISMF is the global governing body for ski mountaineering competitions. Since 2016, the organization is officially recognized by the International Olympic Committee IOC. Its main goals are the promotion, regulation and development of the ski mountaineering sport worldwide. Based in Lausanne, Switzerland, the ISMF’s membership consists of 44 national mountaineering or ski sports federations in Europe, Asia and the Americas.

The ISMF organizes ski mountaineering World Cups events and World Championships. For the first time, ski mountaineering was a medal sport at the 2020 Youth Olympic Games in Lausanne Switzerland and has recently been included in the programme of the Olympic Winter Games Milano Cortina 2026.

In December 2022, we saw Ireland’s first competitor in an international SkiMo event and in April 2023 one skier took part in the SkiMo Youth Camp in the Tatra mountains, Poland. (for more information click.
