X-C skiing is a great complement activity to cycling, and yes it feels much better than walking
after you learn how to ski properly. It seems that 95% of skiers I meet shuffle along rather than
ski, somewhat due to the skiis they use. For my wife, bicycling is second on her list of activities,
after skiing. I put skiing #2. Right now we have several feet of snow in Central New York. Little
breezy today.

Boarding is nowhere near the physical exercise that xc skiing is. Fun though.
