XC skier in today's Google "doodle"

Postby LewLasher » Wed Dec 24, 2014 10:26 am

If you go to the Google search page (e.g., www.google.com or www.google.no, etc.) today, there is an animated GIF of a cross-country skier pulling a sled.

Can you figure out what is on the sled? I'm not sure.

More (senseless) detail: the skis in the GIF look like simple wooden skis without sidecut or camber. But it is definitely cross-country, not alpine skiing, as evidenced by the gently rolling terrain in the (Hanna-Barbera style) animation. And it is not trail skiing, because the skier is double-poling the whole way.
