Cross-Country Skiing Winter Outdoor Activities

That feeling when you’re weightless? Cross-country skiing does that. There’s this moment when you stop paying attention to the physical exertion and just glide over the snow. There's nothing like it. • Learn it: Pull on some long johns and get your skis under you where the Olympians train, the Canmore Nordic Centre. • Do it: Cross-country skiing can happen just about anywhere in the province where you can find snow, including urban parks, groomed trails around your mountainside hotel and parts of the Trans Canada Trail (also known as The Great Trail).
