Cross-Country Skiing 1: Skating and Striding

Cross-Country Skiing  1: Skating and Striding

CINE Golden Eagle Award
Grand Prize -NY Intl. Ski Film Festival

Cross-country skiing is one of the oldest sports in the world. It was introduced to North America by Scandinavian immigrants who settled in the snowbelt areas of Canada and the U.S. Cross-country skiing has recently undergone significant changes in equipment, training, techniques, and facilities. This classic award-winning program includes interviews with several cross-country skiing experts, including former Olympic skiers Mike Gallagher and Martha Rockwell, as well as with cross-country skiing enthusiasts who explain their love for this sport. The program demonstrates techniques, such as marathoning, the stagger skate, double-pole-every-skate, and diagonal V skate. It shows how these revolutionary techniques, as well as synthetic skis and poles, vastly increased skiing speeds and eliminated the need for archaic ski waxes. The program visits the Stratton Mountain School in Vermont, where budding competitive cross-country skiers are expertly trained and conditioned, and it ends with footage from several cross-country ski-racing events. 95/12DE IJSCA 30 min.
