Cross country skiing 101:
There are two different techniques of cross country skiing, classic and skate. Classic skiing is done primarily with the skier’s skis oriented straight ahead, skis running parallel. A specific type of wax or some kind of mechanical gripping design exists on the bottom of the ski’s midsection, to keep the skis from sliding backward. Trails are groomed with “tracks”, parallel grooves set in the snow to make the experience easier. Skate skiing uses skis designed solely for gliding, without a midsection gripping design, making use of lateral movements to move forward. A flat and firm surface created by grooming helps to make skate skiing easier.
In the Learn to Ski Lesson, we can teach you either discipline, but we always recommend learning to classic ski first. Soon enough, we’ll have you hooked on this incredible sport!
