Beginners Guide to Cross-Country Skiing

In this video we introduce you to the sport of cross-country skiing (classic style). Starting with a look at the equipment, we then show you how to ski the standard diagonal stride. We next turn to skiing up and down hills with the herringbone and snowplough techniques. This video is ideal for anyone starting out in cross-country skiing or looking to improve their technique.

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

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:

Nordic skiing training -- without the snow

Deno Johnson, of Nordic Works Ski Club, coaches beginners and more experienced skiers year-round thanks to roller skis. Video by Marlin Levison.

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.
