Expert’s tip: At what age can my child try cross-country skiing?

With cross-country skiing, the child has to be able to supply the power to move along on level terrain or up a hill. Children younger than 7 or 8 may become frustrated with this challenge. If a child has expressed interest in the sport and is athletically inclined, a good starting point might be a short introductory lesson or a mom or dad-and-me lesson where the parent and an instructor work together with the child in a short learning session.
