Using the simple premise that women products need to be different from men's, some cross country (XC) ski companies went to work designing a line of women's skis and boots that incorporates various differences between the male and female physical characteristics and their interests. For example, women generally have narrower feet, so companies have built boots to accommodate. A woman's whole center of gravity may be shifted compared to a man, which means that application of force from the legs to the skis is shifted, so different flexes in a ski are appropriate. Some product differences are c ..read more

Dressed for cross country skiing on the trails in West Yellowstone Often on the cross country (XC) ski trails the clothes that many of the uninitiated wear are malfunctioning…that is, they are dressed for downhill skiing wearing insulated ski jackets and pants, alpine ski gloves or mittens, and ski goggles. XC skiing is a form of recreation that involves moving and thus lighter clothing is appropriate. Recreational XC ski garb is versatile, functional, and fashionable, which is different than either the outfits for downhill skiing or the suction suits worn by the XC ski racers seen at the Oly ..read more

It is high performance waxless base technology for the classic skier, who prefers to use a waxless ski. The ski strips are like small climbing skins and they are resistant to icing because they have a Teflon-like coating. There are conditions where a de-icer should be applied to the skins.

Rottefella’s Move Switch The Rottefella company has created the binding solution for waxless and skin cross country skis. The Move Switch is a dial on the front of the binding that will allow skiers to slide the binding forward or backwards without releasing the ski from the boots.

3y ago
The Nature Fix by Florence Williams published by W.W. Norton & Company in 2017 provides the most compelling argument to date for people to spend more time outdoors in nature, based on an increasing amount of biological, psychological, and medicinal scientific evidence. Over the years, efforts have been made to quantify nature’s impact on mood, well being, ability to think (remember, plan, create) and sociability.
