Cross Country Skiing

Enjoy the outdoors, have some fun and get yourself in shape this winter by trying cross country skiing.

Cross Country Skiing - Getting Started

Cross country skiing is a fun and low-cost winter sport that is easy to get involved in, as long as you live somewhere that gets lots of snow.
  • The Gear - Cross country ski gear inclues a set of skis, polls and boots. You can buy a package of basic cross country ski gear for around $100.
  • Find Some Snow - The great thing about cross country skiing is that you don't need to pay big bucks or drive to some big resort. All you need to do is find some snow, whether it's in a school field, your backyard, or some trails in the forest.
  • Easy To Learn - Cross country skiing is much easier to learn than downhill skiing, since you use much of the same movements you use for walking.
  • Cross Country Skiing - Health Benefits

    Cross country skiing is an easy-to-learn winter sport that has many health benefits. The sport is a great aerobic exercise and works the muscles in your legs, back, chest, stomach and butt. Cross country skiing is also a fun social activity and can be a fun way to get some exercise with family and friends during the winter.

    Cross Country Skiing - Different from Downhill Skiing

    Cross country skiing is a relaxing sport, which some people may find "boring" compared to the high speed and big air world of downhill skiing. While cross country skiing may not have the excitement and adrenaline of downhill, it doesn't have the nasty wipeouts or high costs associated with downhill skiing either.

    Which Is More Fun - Downhill or Cross Country?

    • Downhill - more speed, more air, more fun.
    • Cross Country - more relaxing and it's a better workout.
    • They're both fun sports.
    • They're both lame. I'd rather be snowboarding.

    considering rooney is a man united legend, and has scored the all time number of goals, i think people are being a bit harsh on him at the moment. i watched carrack's testimonial not long ago, and in honesty i couldn't really tell him apart from those who have retired but his heart is in united and he's a class player. maybe it's time for him to step aside for the newer players to start building on united's success, and play less games but the lads on social media calling him out for every second he's not training, or demanding we drop him i think need to calm down. this is a proper legend, and we should respect his commitment to the team. thoughts?
