There's definitely a difference in the types of cross-country skiing. At least there should be. Skate skiing is a killer, more intense than "regular" cross country but both make you work. Not sure who decided it was a good idea to ski uphill...

I love ice skating too even though I'm a bit of a klutz...I wish I could do it more often! But it's nice to see that winter hiking is quite the workout; my sister and I will take her dog out for a walk in the woods when we're together on holiday breaks.
