Cross-Country Skiing 2: If You Can Walk

Cross-Country Skiing  2: If You Can Walk

Grand Prize -NY Intl. Ski Film Festival
Cross-country skiing is one of the oldest sports in the world, which over the years has undergone significant changes in equipment and technique, making the sport more exciting and more enjoyable. This classic award-winning program focuses on several of the more rudimentary cross-country skiing techniques. Specifically, it demonstrates basic striding, poling, and gliding skills, which are prerequisites to learning more complex cross-country skiing techniques. Expert skiers demonstrate diagonal striding and poling, double-pole striding, and herringbone technique. They also show three positions for gliding down hills: wide track position, high crouch position, and egg position, each dictated by terrain conditions. The program discusses the three most common faults of the beginning cross-country skier: having an overly erect body position, outstretched poles, and stiff unbent knees. The theme of this program is that cross-country skiing involves natural techniques and is a sport that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. 95/12DE IJSCA 15 min.
