What is Cross Country?
Cross Country – Free heel like telemark gear, but much lighter (faster, requires less energy). This gear is not as as strong as telemark gear and does not accommodate aggressive downhill skiing. Bindings lock in toe, but do not have a cable (much less stability) forward slide but traction when pushing back do not have a metal edge (not good edge control). Often these skis have “fish scales” or special wax that allows forward slide but traction when pushing back. Cross country skiing is about touring rolling hills and flatter terrain.
