Few activities can compare to cross-country skiing for the opportunity to experience a quieter, more serene side of winter (with a killer cardio workout to boot). While many alpine ski areas also offer Nordic trails, some of the best cross-country skiing is found at dedicated resorts.
We asked our readers to vote for their favorite North American nordic resorts, and the results are in!

A panel of experts partnered with 10Best editors to picked the initial nominees, and the top 10 winners were determined by popular vote. Experts Peter Ashley, Reese Brown (Cross Country Ski Areas Association), John Morton, Liz Stephen and Jonathan Wiesel (Nordic Group International) were chosen based on their knowledge and experience of the North American nordic ski scene.
