“For three to five days, the Trikke and Skki devotees whooped it up on the greens, blues, and blacks. They frolicked in the snow and gathered each evening to share stories. They varied in their levels of expertise but were unified in their love of Skkiing.”
That’s how Colorado resident and Trikke Trainer Kevin Purdy describes Trikkedom’s largest annual U.S. gathering of Skki enthusiasts known as the Skki Inn, produced for the first time in 2012 by the Trikke Academy, and held for the last time, to date, in the mountains of Utah (the 2013 Skki Inn has been relocated to Oregon).
