Are you curious about skiing but unsure where to start? You’re not alone! Cross-country skiing is an incredible form of exercise and a perfect way to experience nature. Here, you can easily learn the basics of cross-country skiing and what you need to know to get started.

Within cross-country skiing, there are two different techniques. The traditional classic technique involves skiing in groomed tracks and using skis with grip wax to move forward. In the skate technique, skiers use skis without grip wax and move in a motion similar to skating.

It’s important to choose the right equipment from the start. If you’re unsure, seek help from knowledgeable staff to select skis, poles, and boots tailored to your height, weight, and skill level.

Skis:

The length of a ski depends on several factors: the skier’s height, weight, and experience. A rule of thumb for classic skis is that they should be 20-30 cm longer than the skier. The flex, or stiffness, of the ski should be adapted to the skier’s weight and should be measured by knowledgeable personnel to provide optimal conditions. A classic ski has a grip zone under the foot, either for applying wax according to the day’s conditions or with so-called “skins.”

Poles:

Your pole length should be approximately 25-30cm shorter than your height. For beginners, it may be recommended to use slightly shorter poles, and for experienced skiers, a slightly longer pole, without exceeding the length interval.

Bindings and boots:

A slightly lower and softer boot adapted for classic technique. There’s also a “combi” boot that works for both classic and skate skiing. There are two different binding systems: the older SNS system, which is no longer manufactured, and the NNN system, which is the system used today. These two systems are not compatible with each other, so be sure to choose the same system for both boots and skis.

Skis:

The rule of thumb for the length of skate skis is that they should be 5-15 cm longer than your height. Thus, shorter than your classic skis. A skate ski does not have any grip zone, only glide. It’s also important that the skis are adapted to the skier’s weight to ensure the best possible glide and to prevent the ski from “pinching,” for example.

Poles:

Your pole length for skate skiing should be approximately 20cm shorter than your height. For beginners, it’s recommended to use slightly shorter poles, and for more experienced skiers, slightly longer poles.

Bindings and boots:

A slightly higher and more stable boot adapted for skate skiing. There’s also a “combi” boot that works for both classic and skate skiing. There are two different binding systems: the older SNS system, which is no longer manufactured, and the NNN system, which is the system used today. These two systems are not compatible with each other, so be sure to choose the same system for both boots and skis.

In both techniques, classic and skate, there are different sub-techniques or gears, as they are often called.
