This is skate skiing

Skate skiing is:

  • Faster, generally, than classic skiing.
  • Best done on groomed trails:  Mt. Bachelor and Meissner are our local areas with the most groomed skating trails. See our Maps Page.
  • Aerobically more challenging than touring.  Lessons are highly recommended if you've never skated before.
  • Done on skis that are glide-waxed on their entire length, similar to downhill skis.
  • Super-fun! Alpine (downhill) skiers tend to pick it up quickly. It's fast, graceful, and could be your ticket to winter fun.

This is classic skiing, or touring

Classic skiing is:

  • Also called traditional, touring, or diagonal stride.
  • Is easiest, generally, for beginners to learn.
  • Can be done in groomed our ungroomed conditions. See our Maps Page.
  • Can be as much of a workout as you make it.  Lessons are always recommended, especially if you're looking to be faster and more efficient.
  • Done on skis that most commonly have a grip pattern under the binding.
  • Super-fun!  Can feel like a hike in the woods, or a challenging run in the snow.  Make of it what you will.
