Best Answer

No cross-country skiing and skiing are two completely different things. They require different equipment. There are "slope" skis which most people are used to that attach to your foot and boot completely. The cross country skis have your heel loose to make it easier to propel yourself forward. Skiing is done on a slope or mountain and cross country isn't necessarily on a hill. They go across all sorts of terrain.
