Cross country skiing is a great form of exercise and a way to get outdoors during the cold winters. It is a good idea to rent cross country skiing equipment before investing in your own, to make sure you love the experience and know what type of skis you need. When you buy your own, you'll need to take into consideration things like ski length and width, flex, boot bindings and boots. Start your search at a local shop, then search on the Internet for options if you feel the local shops are too expensive.
