A typical classic course starts with a downhill section and transitions through a variety of terrain including sections of free skiing, giant slalom, super G, skating, nordic distance jumping and 360 degree bank turns (also known as "the noose"). The sprint classic is an abbreviated version of this, with giant slalom, jump, reipelykkja and a uphill sections to the finish line.
