XC Skiing Checklist

Nordic skiing is just like any other sport where you have
to bring many items with you each time. Maybe corporate America has
just convinced us we do. My issues is not forgetting to bring stuff
with me to ski but losing it in the parking lot, just ask those who
ski with me. Here’s a list of things to think about when headed to
