Cross country skiing can be just as high energy as its downhill counterpart, but it can also move along at a meandering pace so it’s great for any experience level. Either way it gives you a great vantage point to experience the winter season from a peaceful self-propelled standpoint. Whether you’re a beginner looking for a hour or two’s glide or an expert looking for a multi-day backwoods adventure, here are some of the best terrains in North America for a cross country ski trip.
1. Kingfield, Maine
In Kingfield, Maine is a place called Huts & Trails, a cross country skiing spot where each trail (which takes about a day to accomplish) ends at a different backwoods hut. The huts are actually more like mini lodges where you’ll be happy warming up and prepping for the next day’s trek.
