XC Skiing

Apr 29, 2009

Hi All,

I just started skate skiing again because 1) I needed a break from the rollers and 2) we've had a pretty snowy winter here in Wisconsin so far. I hadn't skied in 19 years but am loving it as an alternative to biking. I think it keeps you fit and mentally fresh, even if I risk no longer looking like a t-rex. Whatever: I don't think I'm going to get the call-up from Quick Step anytime soon anyway.

My question is: anybody know about any XC skiing websites akin to cyclingnews that would help me dig into this sport in the same way I've come to know and love cycling? The last time I skate skied, there was no Internet (or at least none I could access).

Thanks for any help in this matter.
