1) Family Outings & Recreational Touring Category
family outings recreational touring xc ski sets

Cross country skiing is a great way to enjoy the outdoors in the wintertime without the hassle of long lines and high priced lift tickets. We've hand selected the equipment in this category for people who want to spend most of their time skiing at nordic ski touring centers and kicking and gliding in groomed ski tracks. You probably are not out to win any gold medals—what you need most is versatile and affordable equipment.

The family outings / recreational touring category features easy sizing skis that grip and turn with ease yet still glide efficiently in groomed ski tracks, warm and comfortable boots that provide the support and stability needed to turn the skis and also for a balanced kick and glide technique. Lightweight poles and convenient automatic step-in bindings are the right choice too.

2) Out-the-back-door Explorer Category
out-the-back-door exploring nordic ski sets

Folks who want to make their own tracks, exploring off the beaten path will want to pay attention to this category. The skis still fit in cross country ski touring center ski tracks, but get wider for more stability when blazing untracked territory, and the boots emphasize warmth, comfort and waterproof dependability, while delivering what is best called "rugged performance" and the ability to power larger skis on more varied terrain.

In the out-the-back-door explorer category "going fast" is not a phrase we hear in this category of touring skier. Itís all about control, safety, adventure and fun.

3) Backcountry Category
nordic backcountry ski sets

If you donít like crowds, scoff at groomed trails and are looking for off the map adventure, you're definitely a backcountry sort.

In the backcountry ski category, the skis get shorter and wider with more sidecut for increased flotation and maneuverability, while the boots get beefier and stiffer to power the skis.

5) Childrens' Category
kid's cross country ski sets

For a fun, healthy and invigorating experience, ORS Cross Country Skis Direct believes nordic skiing is one of the best ways to get children outside during winter.

Whether gliding on touring center ski tracks or venturing off to explore in freshly fallen snow, it's very important that children have the proper equipment to stay warm and comfortable. For the kids ski category we've carefully selected childrens ski boots that meet this criteria, while the skis and bindings enable ease of balance and perform well in various terrain and conditions.
