Snow Australia XC Committee

“Cross country ski racing will always be challenging, but it should also be rewarding, interesting and fun. Not everyone will win an Olympic medal, not everybody will represent their country. But everyone can strive towards and achieve personal goals, become competent skiers, develop skills for life and be part of the Australian cross country skiing family.”
