Cross Country Skiing
Cross Country skiing or Nordic skiing as it is sometime known, is for those who love endurance and fitness, as well as the feeling of freedom and fun, which come hand in hand with both Cross Country skiing and Rollerskiing (the dry-land equivalent).
If you fancy giving Cross Country a go, or maybe you have already tried it and would like to get better or start racing, the best way to do this is by joining a Rollerski club, or if you live in Scotland or spend much time there, there are Cross Country clubs you can join.
Many of the clubs run 'have a go' sessions and once you are part of a club, they will introduce you to the race circuit, as well as giving you the opportunity to get coaching to improve your technique and racing.
If you could see yourself competing with the British Nordic Squad one day, then check out the Cross Country Performance Pathway, which shows you how you can take the different steps towards competing for your country
There is a comprehensive list of UK clubs on the British Nordic website. Additionally, Rollerski.co.uk is a private company offering taster sessions and courses in the UK
