OF course I have googled it, but how can I learn to XC ski. I went to Play-it-Again sports to ask about it but they were to busy and some guy basically just said rent some skis and go learn. Great advice, but I like to know a little about it before I just jump on some skis. It is really frustrating trying to learn something new as an older guy. I was hoping to use it to get in better shape and burn some calories. Thanks for any info.
