My new passion: cross-country skiing!

Have you guys ever tried cross county skiing? It’s so fun and SUCH a great workout! I haven’t done it since I was a kid and I’ve been having such a fun time with it. I usually go a couple times a week with friends and I always feel great after getting some fresh mountain air. It’s an incredible way to blow off steam after a long week and recharge for the next. There are some hills in Vancouver that are pretty advanced though so I must admit I was pretty intimated the first couple times. It was like down hill skiing the hills were so steep! I thought it was going to be mostly flat with some rolling hills…oops! My of my friends hated it and had to take off her skis and walk down one of the steepest hills. I did the same the first time and I am working my way up to skiing down it by practicing more on smaller hills first. Taking a steep hills your first time is not recommended haha!

What are some of your favorite winter activities? I would live to find more new fun outdoor activities to explore this winter season!
