FAQ: classic or skating?

classic style

  • In other words: We are running in two rails made of snow. :-)
  • Classic is easier to begin with. In classic lessons we teach how to run easily, how to change tracks, how to manage downhill sections and how to break.
  • Since the invention of XC-skis with skins classic skiing is very trendy again. Also many kids love the classic style.
  • Perfect for ski hiking, for endurance excercises as well as for racing.
  • Classic skis are longer than skating skis and have a grip section under the binding. (structure or skin or kick wax at racing skis). This zone touches the ground, when we are standing on one ski. Correct length of poles is from ground to armpit - shoulder. Classic boots have a flexible sole.
  • Running a really top classic technique is not easy, it´s a set of approx. 10 different subtechniques that cover all possible speed and terrain situations. So there´s always something to learn. :-)
  • Let´s go classic skiing!


  • We run on smoothly groomed tracks that can be slippery.
  • Most beginners say it looks easier than it actually is...
  • Skating provides a feeling of flying and 3-demensional freedom, we also call it dancing on skis, and dancers really have an advantage. You need a good balance, skills in ice-skating, inline-skating or classic XC skiing are a good prerequisite.
  • Skating enables more top speed on flat sections, as the accelerating Skating kick to the side happens on a gliding ski, whereas classic skis are standing still at the moment of the kick.
  • Skis have a smooth base w/o grip section, they are a bit longer than body height, pole length between chin and nose. Skating boots have stiff soles and privide more stability. 
  • We recommend to learn the different skating techniques, overall five of them to cover speed and slope variability. Running correct techniques is faster, healthier (body positioning and effect on joints), safer and more fun. Here you find our Skating lessons.
  • Get your skis and let´s start!

endurance sports & nordic skiing

As an open air winter sport XC-skiing provides a lot of advantages:

  • Enjoying snow in a beautiful landscape is good for you mind. Instead of surfing through social media for hours, start nordic skiing and recharge your batteries! 
  • XC-skiing requires most of the muscles in your body in collaborative work to get forward. Thereby it is one of the healthiest kinds of sport. Nordic Skiing strengthens your muscles, blood, circulatory system, heart and loung. Athletes who work on their VO2max can steer and apply ideal interval training throuth XC-skiing in a suitable setting.
  • Power generation of the legs is dominant with 70%, however you will supply approximately 30% with your upper body, abdominal muscles, shoulders and back. XC-skiing is a highly efficient prevention against malpositions and back pain.
  • Fast gliding on one leg, in combination with complex movements required to run a couple of different Skating and Classic techniques, require a high level of coordinative skills. It is no accident that Skating is called "dancing on skis".
  • Risk: Among all sports performed on skis, nordic skiing is the one with the lowest risk of injury.

All in all: There is no way around nordic skiing on the high plateau Seefeld in Tyrol / Austria. :-)
