St. Paul, MN (PRBuzz.com) February 22, 2013 -- For the last 10 years, Cross-CountrySki.com has been writing about, promoting and encouraging the development of the sport of cross country skiing in North America.
The site manager Sam Hanson said, "Cross-country skiing, or Nordic skiing, is a perfect winter sports activity. Unlike downhill skiing, it really doesn't take that long to get the hang of it. Plus, since you can try it almost where ever there is enough snow, you don't have to spend all day driving to a ski area to do it."
"Granted, the best place to Nordic ski is on a groomed trail," Hanson continued, "But you don't have to find a trail, many enthusiasts just head over to the nearest park or snow-covered golf course."
Cross-CountrySki.com doesn't sell products or require a paid membership to view the site. It is merely a free resource for visitors to get some basic information about the sport.
Hanson offers some basic advice to those who are considering trying the sport out, "Try renting some skis first, preferably at a resort or a professional ski shop. They will make sure you get what you need and will give you the basics of what you need to know. If you find that you like it, you can always buy skis and gear later."
The website has information on skis and all of the necessary accessories. It also provides lists of ski clubs and links to areas that provide ski trails.
"Nordic skiing is something that the whole family can do together," Hanson concluded, "Not only is it fun, but it gives you a good reason to get out in the snow and it provides a great workout too."
