Cross-Training with Cross-Country Skiing

Read Jean Pommier's account of cross-country skiing with his family at Royal Gorge Ski Resort in the western Sierra, North America's largest resort dedicated to the sport. His adventure is a timely reminder of winter-time cross-training options. The benefits of cross-country skiing include less impact on the joints than running on trails and an incredible workout with stunning views.

With a bit of snowshoeing and snowboarding, one could stay up in the Sierra for a week or so, or more. Too bad the holidays are over. The weather in the Sierra this weekend will reportedly bring up to 10 feet of snow. There's still next week.
