No, nordic skiing is same as cross-country skiing.
Cross-country skiing is a sport of skiing over the countryside rather than on downhill runs.
It is a cross between Nordic (cross-country) and Alpine (downhill) skiing and involves doing free-heel turns that resemble a lunge maneuver.

We have basically 2 different types of skiing: Downhill and cross-country.
Quite a bit is different. The gear is different, the skis are straight, as opposed to downhill skis being curved (the curve makes it easier to turn on a downhill slope), the boots in cross country are not stationary in the bindings, as downhill boots are, instead you can move the heels, and the poles used in cross country are longer. Also, the slopes are not nearly as steep as in downhill skiing.
