Cross-Country Skiing 4: Why We Love It!

Cross-Country Skiing  4: Why We Love It!

Cross-country skiing has evolved into one of North America's most popular winter activities. This classic program focuses on the more subjective aspects of cross-country skiing. It shows people from all ages and backgrounds enjoying the sport in a variety of environments. Cross-country skiing enthusiasts can be found at the world-class New Hampshire Marathon, at a family outing and picnic on a snow-covered lake in Minnesota, or observing the winter wildlife in the middle of Yellowstone National Park. The sport can be innervating, competitive, functional, or relaxing. Modern cross-country ski centers, where rental equipment and technical advice are readily available, are within minutes of most recreational ski areas in the U.S. It takes only a couple of hours to grasp fundamental skiing techniques like the "diagonal stride," and then it's off to the woods, the park, or the golf course to enjoy the snow and the outdoors. Cross-country skiing can add buoyancy, spirit, and tranquility to a person's life. For many of the people shown in this program, cross-country skiing has afforded them "freedom of body and mind" and has become an indispensable part of their lives. 95/12DE IJSCA 15 min.
