Classic skiing

The skis used are long and narrow: they do not have metal edges and the central part is waxed in order to hold them in place, if not, they are equipped with scales for tourist-leisure activities.
The traditional technique, known as classical, consists of advancing in two parallel tracks. It is also called the technique of the alternative step because the sliding is carried out from one foot to the other.


 

Skating style

Skating is practiced with smooth skis, without wax in order to slide as well as possible over the whole length.
This style, which is similar to ice skating, is more demanding than classical skiing and requires a certain physical condition.
