I used to ski a bit in my youth, 30-40 years ago, and this winter I've decided to get back into cross country skiing more regularly for both recreation and fitness. I look forward to reading the forum and posting a bit from time to time.

Thanks in advance to everyone for sharing your knowledge and experience, and also for the opportunity to join this forum.

Happy to be here! 8)

Welcome. 8) Were are you at? Do you have groomed trails close by?

I'm in North Central Midwest US. We have some man-made snow loops ready to ski within an hour or two drive, and once any real snow falls there are many groomed trails.

I also like to ski out the door and on the lake, but until the weather allows, l'll be practicing my "Classic" style on trails while the skaters zoom past!

When I started cross country skiing many years ago these different styles were just starting to emerge. It's interesting to see all the advancement in technique and equipment since then.
