Cross Country Skiing: Activities That Keep You Fit

Winter: With all this fresh snow you might as well take advantage of it and try your hand at cross country skiing. Maine offers many cross country skiing facilities that allow many first time skiers a way to try the sport without much risk. In most places, visitors can rent equipment for the day or by the hour. If you already have equipment many facilities offer miles of groomed trails which makes it an enjoyable way to spend some time in the outdoors. I love to go right after a snowfall. The beauty of a snow covered trail in the woods and the lightly packed trails makes for perfect skiing conditions. If you prefer to chart your own course find a wide open field and strap you skies on and go! Either way, cross country skiing is a great way to get outside and burn off some of those holiday goodies!
