On Snow Skiing

There are many opportunities to cross-country ski on-snow abroad, search the internet and ask around for suggestions.

In addition to companies that specialise in cross-country resort holidays the main alpine ski companies go to a number of cross-country resorts often providing easier access with direct flights than possible with a self-arranged holiday.

Scotland

Occasionally in Scotland there are cut tracks in Glenmoe Forest and Clashindarroch Forest near Huntly. In addition, both the Lecht and Glencoe ski centres have run Cross Country skiing events, including the occasional race.

Races

For those considering entering biathlon races it is advisable to have entered a number of cross-country races first. They will provide much of the biathlon experience, e.g pre-race preparation, skiing at race pace and skiing in a crowd, without the additional issues of carrying and operating a rifle under race conditions.

It is worth noting that cross-country races are normally substantially longer than biathlon races so you may want to select a shorter race (or only race hard for the first 10km or so).

There are rollerski races in the UK as well as public races and Masters race on-snow abroad.
