I have never cross country skied at a resort.
I prefer remote trails.
I have skied Whiteface back when the lift ticket cost six dollars.
Why are you so arguementive???
Jim

Sorry Jim, I was just trying to be humorous when you said "sitz mark was a last resort I said I have stayed at that resort. You missed it. Don't take everything I say as serious because I am often trying to be facetious. Once again we show how different we are but that's okay. I hope you are not offended because it was all in jest. Jest the same.

Shorter full metal edge skis come in handy for fast and icy conditions - you don't need much floatation on hard pack, and it won't sacrifice speed too much on the glide.
Wider skis with side cut can help if you have good bindings and boots, if you find it difficult to set the edge look into a set of binding risers/shims.

Temporary 'climbing skin' can be achieved on cold days if you take a wet rag or paper towel and wipe along the cold ski base (skip the scales if you have them - very difficult to clean them out in the cold), make sure you have a scraper on you.
