down hill? im not sure.... I hope i help you!!
Cross-country skiing is a sport of skiing over the countryside rather than on downhill runs.
"Nordic Combined" - an Olympic sport combining the events of downhill skiing and cross-country skiing
Downhill and Cross country Skiing, snowboarding, Snowmobiling, glacier climbing... its a pretty long list. (pretty much any snow sport)
Downhill, cross country, slalom.
I think it would be ski cross or downhill
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.
Downhill: Austria Cross-country: Norway
Cross-country: Norway Downhill: Austria
No. Snowboard cross is a downhill sport, but the slopes are not any where near as steep as downhill racing - snowboarding on an Olympic level downhill ski course would be suicide.
The difference is that a downhill ski is much wider along with the binding, a cross country binding is only connected at the toe of a boot. when a downhill binding is connected at both the heel and the toe. hope this helped
Downhill skiing won't make you die of heart failure.
Cross country skis are are much wider, intended to reduce ground pressure. Downhill skis are narrower, to reduced resistance, and intended more for packed snow.
No, nordic skiing is same as cross-country skiing.
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)
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.
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.
Some, but not as much as cross-country skiing
Cross country and swimming. Swimming builds upper body. Cross country builds leg muscle
We have basically 2 different types of skiing: Downhill and cross-country.
Cross Country is a real sport, Everything else just plays with balls.
Decathlon is a sport. Downhill skiing is a sport.
