Cross Country Skiing

Cross country skiingCross country skiing is the oldest type of skiing, having evolved out of a need to travel over snow-covered terrain. Along the way, about a century or so ago, some of these travelers realized that skiing could also be fun. Since then, cross-country skiing has evolved so that it can now be enjoyed in a wide variety of forms - and it is great exercise.
