There are two styles of cross-country skiing: classic and skating. Skating has its origins in Nordic skiing and is very popular because of its very sporty appeal. You make a V-shaped movement with your legs - similar to inline skating. The classic version offers a mix of endurance, strength and agility. Here, your skis are in a prepared track with two parallel grooves
