Cross-Country Skiing

Cross-Country Skiing

Traditionally, Olympic cross-country skiing events alternate between classical and free technique from Games to Games. In classical technique, the skis move parallel to each other through machine-groomed tracks in the snow, whereas there are no restrictions in free technique, making for a slightly faster motion.
