a few good reasons to ski XC
- there alot more to it than the image most people have in their minds of people skating around on flat terrain in tights.
- no lift lines
- no freezing your butt off
- no confines
and most importantly:
- close to 100% ratio of time to time spent actually skiing
Let do the math of skiing at one of the local mid-atl ski pimples... aprox. 15minutes to get a ride to the top. 2 minutes to ski down at most. thats less than 10 minutes per hour spent actually skiing!!!
unless your on a rope tow! ski down / ski up! rope tows can rock!
