Skate skis vs classic skis?
Novice level skiier here, wondering about the differences between
skate skis vs. classic skis.
I've only ever had classic skis and have recently taken up the sport
of skijorijng (my dogs run in harness in front and pull me while I ski
- or try to ski - behind). With classic skis, I find it's too hard to
ski classic-style at the higher speed we travel at with the dogs
pulling, so I end up only poling, and corners are very tricky. My
understanding is that ideally in skijoring you're supposed to skate
ski, but this seems hard to do on classic skiis while being pulled at
Do skate skiis offer more control for higher speed turns? Are they
more effective for snowplowing to stop? Are they less likely to get
"caught" in the occasional deeper patches of snow?
I'm very appreciative of any advice/tips anyone can offer on this
