What is the difference between alpine, cross-country, and backcountry skis? 

What is the difference between backcountry and cross-country skiing? As the attraction of the winter environment has grown so has the various methods of snow travel expanded. Cross-country skiing is steeped in tradition long before the advent of ski lifts and groomed slopes. The opportunity to blend exercise with the rhythmic “kick and glide” of cross-country skiing is attractive to those looking for a quiet experience away from the crowds and into the wonderful world of ski touring. Backcountry skiing although relatively new is an extension of traditional cross-country skiing. For those looking beyond meadows and gentle slopes for the chance to ski un-tracked powder, the new generation of AT and Telemark equipment offers touring in bigger terrain for those seeking powder turns. Trade-offs? Cross-country gear is lightweight and simple / Backcountry gear tends to be heavier, focusing as much on the downhill as the touring.
