Adaptive Cross-Country Skiing

Cross-country skiing is a winter sport in which participants propel themselves across snow-covered terrain using skis and poles. Cross-country skiing is also the method of locomotion in the combination sport of biathlon, which adds rifle marksmanship to skiing.  For further information on adaptive sports, please contact the sports director, Jean Brennan, at adaptive@eswgames.com.
