The technique volume in the Science of Nordic Skiing series represents a clear view to the most current understanding of technique and instruction. The project has engaged key principals, elite skiers, recognized experts and thought-leaders in the sport; consolidated their ideas and arrived at a progressive and highly-effective approach to the technique, which you can apply directly to your skiing and fast-track your development this season. This is the most comprehensive nordic ski instructional product on the market today! It encorporated the previously certified content of Unlimited Nordic Skiing and takes it beyond the offical manuals. The enhanced DVD is highly interactive toolkit; using menus, multiple viewing angles, and alternate audio tracks. The DVD-ROM features also include: technical manuals, multimedia explanations, critical and alternative analysis, bio-mechanical modeling, narrative scripts, MP3 audio books, a photo gallery, and bonus movies.

Skate Skiing - The #1 Thing

What's the most important thing we try to do when skate skiing? Weight transfer, push off, balance, glide, foot return, leg drive?

The answer is more nuanced than just one or two of the things listed above. At the very core of everything that we try to do on skate skis, at the very core of every tip, trick, or tactic, is on thing...

Move your center of mass toward the base of the support to direct pressure along the length of the ski.

It's a mouth full. But it's true. I should say, it's the most comprehensive true statement that I have come across. After pondering this statement, skiing this statement, and teaching this statement for a few seasons, I can't think of a time when racing, training, or skiing for fun that this fundamental statement isn't accurate.

Even at the end of a double cycle when my center of mass moves behind my feet and more pressure moves toward the tails of my skis, I believe this statement still is helpful. I'm moving and adjusting my center of mass over my base of support to direct pressure along the length of my skis.

At that moment in double pole, I'm moving my center of gravity toward the rear of my base of support to apply more pressure on the tails of my skis so that I get more acceleration from my skis.

The statement as become my litmus test. When I watch skiers ski, especially when I'm coaching a skier or group of skiers, I look to see what their center of mass is doing in relationship to their base of support and how it effects the power generated through their skis.

Then the next most important question, why? Why are they successful or not successful manipulating their center of mass toward their skis to create, maximize, or maintain glide efficiently?

Is it because they are not transferring their weight toward the new ski? Are they not getting a solid push off in order to move themselves toward the new skate ski? Are their feet not returning underneath them? How about their poling? Do the poles contribute to moving their center of mass toward their skis? Or do the poles only accelerate the ski and do nothing synergistically with weight transfer?

In this video, I'll demonstrate what this looks like and two drills that I hope will get you feeling directing pressure along the length of the ski and moving your center of mass over your base of support.

REI Trailheads: You should try Cross-Country Skiing!

What happens when you strap cross-country skis to two novices and set them in the snow with a REI expert? A whole lot of laughs, plus some great advice from someone who knows what they’re doing. Watch all the ups, downs and bumps along the way. Then get out there and try it yourself.

Backcountry XC Skiing - Alaska

Watch the newest video 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
Cole Talbot
Andrew Dougherty
Erik Flora – 2013 USOC National Coach of the Year – All sports

Shot on the GoPro Hero 4 Session with PolarPro Filter, mounted to my ski pole, and homemade stabilizer. Sorry for the shake!
