Cross country is the new downhill when it comes to skiing this winter, said a leading snow sports holiday specialist. More and more skiers are turning to cross country skiing and other snow activities such as snowshoeing in a bid to learn and experience something new, said managing director for Waymark Holidays.
“We’ve have had a surge in enquiries recently by people who would normally take 1 or 2 standard downhill skiing trips a year and are now on the hunt for something new,” he said.
Top resorts this season include Dobbiaco in the Italian Dolomites, for its multitude of winter activities, such as cross country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, tobogganing and winter walking as well as the Triglav National Park in Slovenia.
Courses in cross country skiing and telemarking are also proving increasingly popular, as snow-buffs look to learn new skills.
“Our flagship instruction centre, Kvitavatn in Norway offers Nordic skills, downhill skills, mountain telemark and touring skills courses and we have seen a lot of interest in these programmes over the last month.”
