What are the options if you want to try out cross-country skiing before going on a holiday, or are just looking for some UK based training?


During the winter the Scottish ski resorts offer cross country options of course, but there are possibilities further south too. The Christmas Adventure winter season, Nordic cross country skiing trail in Yorkshire is one idea, it is only 1.2 km long, but that's long enough to give things a go and get the feel for cross country technique – and the track itself is artificial so there's no need to wait for a snowfall!


Further north you can do the same thing all year round at Huntly Nordic and Outdoor Centre in Aberdeenshire. The centre is the UK's only all-weather, purpose-built centre for cross-country and Nordic skiing. Tuition for all levels is available on day and weekend courses.


Another way to do it is by roller skiing – this is cross-country skiing without snow, using wheeled roller skis on surfaced trails and tracks. run day courses in and around London teaching the basic roller ski/cross-country technique to help prepare people for snow skiing.
