The aim of this website is to distribute news on cross country skiing in Australia, particularly about cross country ski racing. Its predecessor is the XC Files, or the Australian Cross Country Skiing Website, which was established in 1997 as part of the Kangaroo Hoppet site. All the archived news and results from 1997 to 2010 are still available on the Hoppet site.
The only difficulty with the old site is that all updates had to posted by FTP and invariably had to be edited by one person. The intention for this new site is that news articles and results will be posted by a wide range of people and the general cross country skiing public will be able to contribute. Call it a blog if you like, however the goal is for it to be a collective blog for Australian cross country skiing.
Ski & Snowboard Australia is the governing body for cross country skiing in Australia, and the cross country committee of SSA is known as Ski Australia Cross Country or SAXC. For selection policies or to become a registered racer with SSA head to the SSA website. You can also subscribe there for Australian Cross Country News, the official publication of SAXC.
