Skis (5e Equipment)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Skis are a set of wooden slats with horse hair bases for uphill traction. Included in the set is a single pole called a lurk used for propulsion and help steer, and each ski should be around equal in height to their user. While wearing the skis characters can ignore snow as difficult terrain. Movement speed on snow is normal for uphill travel, and is doubled while moving horizontally or downhill. At the end of each minute a creature is moving downhill on skis, their movement speed increases by 10 feet and they must succeed a DC 12 Dexterity (Acrobatics) check or fall prone and take bludgeoning damage equal to 1/5th their movement speed. A creature with mountains or arctic as their favored terrain has advantage or has been trained with skis has advantage on this saving throw, and a creature with Evasion takes half as much damage on a failure. Training with skis can be acquired in the same way as gaining proficiency with a set of artisan's tools.
