[CC] Cross Country

In cross country you compete in teams or individually. For many years, Cross-Country Skiing only consisted of one style, the “classic diagonal style” in which both the skis are kept in prepared tracks. During the 1982 World Cup season, the skating style grew in popularity and was later developed into today’s skate skiing on a course with no prepared tracks.

[NC] Nordic Combined

In Nordic Combined, the winner is decided on the basis of one jump on the ski jumping hill and one 10 km cross-country race. In other words, the athlete needs both the skill and the bravery required in jumping the hill and the physical endurance and technique needed for cross-country skiing. The points that the athlete receives for the jump are translated into a time difference.

[JP] Ski Jumping

In ski jumping men compete on the large hill and the normal hill, both individually an in teams, while the ladies only compete on the normal hill. In order to be a successful ski jumper you need a good technique, good timing and not least courage. The competitors strive for maximum length of the jump at the same time as not loosing in style or the telemark landing, for which they are awarded points. A telemark landing, is where one foot is in front of the other when landing.
