Feature for cross country ski

Dear all,
I would like to ask you, why you do not support other activities – namely Cross-country Skiing with the same features like Running and Cycling. I think that running and cycling is the major aerobic activity in the summer and in the winter Cross-country Skiing is really close to that, moreover many cyclist use it as major training activity in winter.
It is really shame that you have this activity on Strava but you do not see it in training log and it has not the excellent Strava features and analysis like Running and Cycling.
Are there any possibility to bring Cross-country Skiing support to the same level as Running and Cycling?
Thank you
Nice day
Martin

    Hi everyone, 

    We do support nordic skiing activities on Strava along with heart rate data and Suffer Score if you're premium. The Fitness and Freshness graph will also include nordic skis. 

    We used to have a separate Cross Country Ski and Nordic Ski activity types, but we removed one to avoid duplication. So, please list your skis as "Nordic Ski" and enjoy!

  • I completely agree with Martas' comment. I do quite a bit of cross-country skiing myself and I am always sorry not to be able to visualize the results of my efforts next to my cycling and running activities, on my profile page for example, or in the training log. There is no way to set a skiing goal either, for example.

  • I am new to Strava and also a Cross-country skier as well. Cross-country is a great off season activity for cyclists and a shame that my efforts can't be included in my training log. I love the group motivational aspects of Strava and find it odd that my recent 3 hour ski trip from yesterday is not supported on the site.

  • I agree, my winter activity is XC and Backcountry skiing and I count this to my aerobic goal for the week. In addition it would be really cool to include these activities in my heat map.

  • Absolutely agree with Martas! Today I was also surprised, that there is no analysis in XC skiing activity type. And I pushed quite hard :-)

  • It is a major shortage for Strava, I am really surpised crosscountry is not supported. If Strava wants go global they should consider places where there is no possibility to ride a bike in winter.

    Hey folks any of you know this organization? http://www.euroloppet.com/home.html

  • Vote for this too! I'm really disappointed when the excercises having HR-data do not have any affect to suffer score. Now you have to start from zero in every spring - it could be much more accurate if every HR-excercise would be calculated for it - the calculation is based on HR-data more or less the same way in different activities.

    I think free and classic skiing should be different sports. I have no idea what does mean the nordic skiing - never heard it even though I'm living in nordic country?!?

  • I Vote for this too. Much needed. 90% of my winter activities fails to be a part of all trending etc in strava as long as this is not implemented. I find it odd that strava still only supports the "triathlon" sports fully. I suspect there is a technical explanation for this. Still, very much needed, even if it requires big changes (?) to the platform. If it is straightforward to solve, I completely fail to understand why it hasn't been done.

  • Another vote for this. Can't believe such a sport is not more supported. I back to using Garmin Connect as its all there easy to use and very tweakable. So come Strava, get your skis on.

  • I was cruising by all the fat bikers yesterday who were sinking in the snow and couldn't get any traction. Rise up xc skiers! #fatbikingisnotmywinteractivity

  • Hello to all cross-country skiing fans,

    after years of waiting for some improvement in Strava I gave up and switched for Runastic.

    It is not extra better but it covers cross-country nicely.

    I hope someone from Stava reads this ...

    Many happy kilometers !

  • Hello

    You can use the Chrome extension : StravistiX for Strava

    It includes nordic ski activites with HR data (and other sports).

    Regards

  • @Strava - Can you comment? I see in another thread that you said you were adding cross country skiing to the mobile app soon. (that was in 2012). From a technical standpoint, it isn't that hard to replicate running and biking to accommodate skiing.

    Can you please provide an update? or at least whether or not you have it in the works to add?

    Thanks!

  • Are there any segments for cross country skiing? is there a way to compare our activities to other athletes?

  • Why is it Only triathlon sports that Count in training log? Workouts, skiing, weighttraining everything should Count. There should also be different subcategories för different techniqiue. Skate o classical. And för rides there should be Road and mtb.

  • @Elle Anderson: all "other" activities are not supported at the same level; for instance, not equipment tracking, and no "race" category...

    No plan to add that??

     

    Thx, Rgds,

  • Pity, we still don't have xc skiing/nordic skiing in our Strava Family. It's not only about Sweden, Norway, Finland, but also Alps, Balkan countries, Russia and for example my Poland (neighbouring Slovakia, Czech Rep. too).  BTW It's the most demanding of all endurance disciplines.

  • still no Xski stats in Strava, what a shame.

    Maybe HQ Strava in Cali does not know this kind of sport haha!

  • Include cross country skiing so it can be tracked in training log, weekly mileage on the landing page in the app, similar to run/bike/swim. Please

  • No best results, no advanced statistics, no possibility to choose a model of skis and ski style (classic / skate) - despite the fact that nothing is worth it to arrange.

  • I second this!

    Only reason I´m not going premium is the lack of features xc skiing and other sports other than bike, run and swim.

  • A new ski season under way and still no complete XC features... I thought going premium would solve this: not. It seems it would not be very difficult to ad a function that would let you choose which sports you want to include. I guess I'll have to go back to Runkeeper for skiing. It's a shame.

  • This is getting awkward. Strava, a lot of people are asking for this. We love you, and we want to continue using Strava, which has everything already built in for xc ski. Furthermore, very many skiers are also cyclists and runners.
    I notice that you are losing people, too. There use to be hundreds or thousands of results on my preferred ski segments. Not anymore. Where have all these people gone? Because I'm ready to follow, as Strava just doesn't seem to care.

  • I agree. I'm so frustrated that my skate skiing isn't supported the same as running or biking. I'm considering leaving Strava over it.

  • I agree, if it is a limit at 3 activities, we should at least have the possibility to choose wich activities that should be in our own stats.
