Options fro French Alps Nordic/Cross Country skiing lessons in France
Classic Cross Country Style
The skis used in the classic form of Cross Country are long and narrow. They do not have metal edges and the central part is waxed for restraint or, failing that, fitted with scales as part of a tourism leisure practice.
This traditional technique, called classic, consists of moving forward in 2 parallel tracks. It is also called the alternative step technique, because the glide is done from one foot to the other.
Skating Cross Country Style
The skater's step, also called by it's English name 'skating', is practiced with smooth skis, without retention wax, to glide as best as possible over the entire length.
This style, which is akin to skating, more demanding than the classic, requires a certain physical condition.
The alliance of effort and precision!
Biathlon is a complete sport which combines physical effort and great concentration.
With passionate esf instructors, come and discover in groups or individually this incredible sport! Biathlon is lesser known to the British guests, however, due to the accessibility of the equipment and instructors it is now available to all. It is advisable to have some knowledge of Nordic skiing to start. Even though the style of skating is that of biathlon, it can be done just as well in classic skiing.
