CROSS-COUNTRY SKIS AND SKATING
Cross-country skiing appeared in the Scandinavian countries in ancient times and is practiced on long, narrow skis. If it was an excellent way to get around in the snow, Nordic skiing is today much more than a leisure activity. Originally, Nordic skiing was practiced with a single pole and on laminated wooden skis up to 4 meters in length. Norway, Finland, Northern Europe, Canada, Alaska, the countries of the Far North have all adopted this sporting discipline. The first official competition was organized in 1843 in Norway. But it was not until 1924 that cross-country skiing became an Olympic discipline.
This endurance sport is practiced today in classic(not alternative), skating, but also in combined or biathlon. Nordic skiing allows you to get away from it all on plateaus or hilly terrain in the heart of a rich and wild nature. Skiing known as "skating" or "skating technique" appeared in the 80s.
Today, cross-country skiing is a sport in its own right at the Olympic Games with different disciplines: the sprint (alone or in teams), the 15 or 10 km, the mass start and the relay. The biggest brands specialising in board sports are constantly innovating each season to offer classic skis or skatings that are both light and high-performance.
