Sports historians usually point to the the Nordic countries of Sweden, Norway and Denmark as the natural birthplace of cross-country skiing.

Early technology was as simple as flat timbers, used by migratory Norse tribes, and later adopted by Vikings in early biathlons using skis for transport and bow-and-arrow to hunt for food.

Like the modern Olympic biathlon, XC skiing is primarily an endurance sport that demands great physical strength - primarily leg and lung power - over long distances and up sometimes steep and challenging climbs to make it to the finish.

The Winter Olympics competition with the greatest number of events, cross-fountry skiing includes sprint, freestyle, classic, team sprint and more for both men and women.

Classic cross-country skiing is the technique wherein skis are kept parallel on the tracks marked on the course with no deviation from them. Freestyle allows the skier to choose a "skating" technique, pushing the skis left and right from both legs.
