Cross country skiing
This article is a travel topic
Cross country skiing is a very efficient way of traveling great distances. The skis are narrower than the usual downhill and slalom skis, and the poles are much longer to help you pole along. You can go cross country in a prepared track or outside in fresh snow. Mountain skis to go outside of the tracks tend to be a bit wider than the skis which you use in tracks, this is to help you to float better in the snow outside of the tracks. Boots are usually made of leather or some synthetic flexible fabric.
