With all the entries/comments coming in for the Fischer skis contest, Anne-Marie’s question got buried, so here it is again, and I’m expecting some good answers from my readers.
“Hi! I would like to start getting in to cross country skiing this year. I’ve done some in the past and have done lots of downhill, so I’m not a complete beginner but I’m not sure where to start for gear. I don’t know much about x-country skis other than fishscale vs wax. How does sizing work? What other factors do I need to consider? Are there any good rental locations where I could try some out? Any places that sell used? Thanks in advance!”
On the sidebar, under Categories, there is a heading entitled Beginner Skiers which will link you to a number of posts that may be helpful.
