Cross-country skiing actually originated thousands of years ago by ancient man and is now in the Winter Olympics. Itês a difficult endurance sport that requires a lot of practice and balance to propel yourself forward with the use of poles across the snow.

London even has its own cross-country ski enthusiasts who regularly take the streets of the capital on wheeled skis - proof that you donêt even need snow!.
