I suspect that might be what the OP is refering to. Those are most definitly not thin cross country skis, though.
Hard to tell with the POV, but at least some of them are on fixed heel skis. Their boots are certainly hard, and they do not have cross country poles. The skis are also quite wide, but maybe fall into the "Nordic Backcountry" category. I'd probably just call it Telemark if indeed their heels are free.
EDIT: I take it back. There is indeed a segment on the video on xc skis. Very impressive.
