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. For everyone from beginners to long-time skiers, you can find cross country-ski resorts in your area at www.xcski.org.
