Topic - Cross Country Skis - Classic or Skate?

yorkshireman - on 17 Feb 2013
How much difference does the type of ski actually make?

I went for my first XC ski session a couple of days ago on our local trails and was given some 'classic' skis by the hire shop. I got on fine and by the end of the session was using them to skate with as well as I got a bit bored just in the prepared tracks.

My question is: if you have 'skate' skis, can you use them classic style too? Or do you really have to choose what type you want to do? I'd like to buy a set as there a few end of line deals in Decathlon at the moment and we've got another couple of months of season left but quite frankly I don't really know what I'm talking about.
