Cross-Country Skiing Tips for Beginners

Cross-country skiing involves traversing uphill, downhill and flat terrain on a long pair of skis, and unlike downhill skiing, you can cross-country ski nearly anywhere with enough snow.

On average, 30 minutes of cross-country skiing burns nearly 300 calories
