We downhill skiers like to take the piss out of cross-country skiing, which has somewhat of a boring reputation. What's fun about a sport where you spend the whole time practically hiking instead of whooshing down the slopes? Well, we have to admit that sometimes cross-country skiing can have its appeal. Check out the videos below and you might just be inspired to give this sport a try, if only for the laughs...

Born and raised in the ski paradise of Vancouver, Canada, I learned to ski before I can remember, balancing precariously on my parents’ skis as they sailed down the hill. I started snowboarding in my teens and am now delighted to be exploring everything Europe’s ski scene has to offer!
