How is cross-country skiing different from down hill skiing?

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.

How is skiing good for you?

It depends what kind.....Cross-country skiing at a good pace (generally on a rolling hills terrain to very hilly) is proven to be the best sport for you. Skate-skiing works nearly every muscle!! Downhill skiing on the other hand is a leisurely and pointless sport if you are looking to get fit!!! Downhill skiing is not bad for you(but you could injure yourself)

Can you ski downhill on cross country skis?

no Yes, but you do not have the same kind of control that you do with downhill skis partly due to the bindings only holding the toe of the cross country boots. The "Telemark" binding gives some better control.

Who plays skiing the best?

By country or individual? Downhill or cross country? If it is extreme sports, high speed downhill skiing, in this category while I could be wrong, believe it not the USA is numero uno. When it comes to the variety of events, acrobatic, standard downhill, obstacles etc, America has won more skiing events than any other country. However,when it comes to cross country, the people who invented it, namely Norway, are still the king. Nobody, out-cross-country skis Norway. Also, no, a Nordic track doesn't count; cross country skiing let me warn you now is a physically brutal sport. It will push your limits all across the board, and toughen you up mentally. In fact, far as winter sports go it is probably the king when it comes to building up mental toughness.
