a couple years ago I went skiing in manning with another guy with Cross country skis. he ended up hiking up some of the hills. he was just sliding backwards. and not that steep.
going from red heather to the parking lot on CC skis would probably scare the crap outa you. (and everyone else hiking up) normally CC routes have very small hills (like 20') are those are scary enough for me. and that's with no pack.
