    Cross-country ski is traditional in the Nordic countries and Russia. During the wintertime you will see whole families going on and skiing all together near by home, in the forest roads or special tracks in sport centre as this one here in Lahti.

    Biathlon

    Biathlon I believe is a kind of military sport combining fast cross country skiing and target shooting. I did not try it myself but Amos here is trying the simulator at the Lahti Ski museum.
