Backcountry XC Skiing - Alaska

Watch Backcountry XC Skiing, Vol II here!

Follow me on Instagram:
Follow me on my website:

With the right conditions, xc skiing can be the best way into the backcountry! My goal is to show what's possible with nordic skiing, and maybe redefine how people perceive it. If you like the video, share it! Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Video shot entirely in Alaska, over the course of 5 outings in late April and early May 2016. The specific locations were in the Talkeetna Mountains near Hatcher Pass, and in the Alaska Range off of the Denali Highway in the Amphitheater Mountains. Each day we were out for about three hours and covered on average 40km per day with a minimum 1000m vertical.

Definitely faster than slogging on heavy backcountry gear.

Skiers in order of appearance:
David Norris – overall winner of 2016 American Birkebiner, WC skier
Tyler Kornfield – 2x US National Champion, Sprinting
Myself – I ski sometimes :)
Scott Patterson – 2016 National Champion, Distance, WC skier

Skike, the original cross skates. Cross-country nordic skiing in summer and winter!

Skike, the original cross skates. Cross-country nordic skiing in summer and winter! Cross-country nordic skiing in summer and winter! A Skike is a sports device consisting of two wheels attached to a frame that can be strapped onto the rider's shoe. Similarly to roller skis, the Skike has a wheel in front and at the tail of an aluminum frame that can be attached to the foot. However, unlike roller skis and roller skates the tires are pneumatic.

The name Skike is a combination of skate and bike. The Skike rider moves forward in a skating motion, usually with poles, similarly to normal Cross Country Skate Skiing.

Unlike on the roller skates and inline skates, Skikes use a pair of large 15-cm (5.9 in) wheels shod in inflatable tires -- that's where the bike part comes in. They're also considerably longer than the foot, with the wheels placed at the very front and very back, connected by a lightweight frame. Instead of the full shoe of other skate designs, Skike's design is more open and light, using a series of three straps to secure foot to frame, and a braking system providing stopping power. They're designed to be used for both street and light off-road applications (think smooth paths).

One of the latest models, the Skike V8 adds a heel-lift system, giving Skikers the option of regular skating or diagonal stride skating. Skikers can open or lock the heel lift on the fly with a toggle switch.

The skates are designed to be used with poles in a sort of warm-weather version of cross country/Nordic skiing. With Skike, 90 percent of your muscle mass is worked, providing a fun, complete workout.

Nordic Ski Techniques w/ Billy Demong

Five-time Olympian and World Cup champion Billy Demong's currently kickin' back in Sochi, presumably with a leopard cub on his lap and a coffee-table book of Putin photos in hand, as he waits for the chance to defend his Nordic Combined gold. Before he headed off to the Black Sea, he stopped by the Utah Olympic Park to offer up some pointers on how to improve skate-skiing form. It's not every day that you get tips from an Olympian, so pay careful attention and you'll become a rocket-powered racer before Billy's back in the USA with his next haul of precious medals. - See more at:

Dramatic and UNFAIR finish at Lahti Nordic Ski World Championship

WORLD RECORD BACKWARD SKIING NEW!!!


Fan footage of Ski World Cup 2017 Airshow incident:

Skier falls and WALKS back up hill:

Trump's handshake (animated):
Men's team sprint:
Norwegian nordic skier falls, hinders Finish victory! At the finish sprint, the Norwegian trips, falls on Finish nordic skier Niskanen.

LAHTI, Finland. Russia won the men's cross-country skiing team sprint at the world championships Sunday after a dramatic last-lap crash wrecked the chances of the two leading teams. The Norwegian fell, and tripped the Finn. They both landed on the ground. Incredible fail!

Norway's Emil Iversen was fighting for the lead with Finland's Iivo Niskanen but they collided as the Finn moved to overtake on the inside of the final bend. They both fell, and two others could overtake them in the last dramatic seconds.

Sergei Ustyugov took the win for Russia, overtaking Italian Federico Pellegrino on the final stretch to win by 2.2 seconds. Niskanen recovered to take third, 6.5 seconds further back.

It was the second win in two days for Ustyugov, who also won Saturday's skiathlon, and his third medal of the championships.

Niskanen hatte mit einem Exploit die Lücke zum führenden Norweger geschlossen und verfügte über den schnelleren Ski. Als er Iversen überholen wollte, blickte der verunsicherte Norweger beim Loipenwechsel nach hinten, stolperte und riss Niskanen mit sich. Der Russe und der Italiener überholten die beiden und konnten somit gewinnen.

Norjan Emil Iversen taisteli johtoon käyttää Suomen Iivo Niskanen mutta he törmäsivät kun Finn siirtyi ohittaa sisäpuolella lopullisen mutka. Molemmat laskivat, ja kaksi muuta voi ohittaa ne viimeiseen dramaattinen sekuntia.

LAHTI, Suomi. Venäjä voitti miesten hiihto joukkue Sprint MM-kisoissa sunnuntaina dramaattinen viimeisen kierroksen kaatuminen tuhonneet mahdollisuudet kaksi johtavaa joukkuetta. Norja laski, käskee Finn. Molemmat laskeutui maahan. Incredible epäonnistua!
