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

With cross-country skiing on level terrain or up a hill, the child has to be able to supply the power to move along. Children younger than 7 or 8 may find this to be a challenge. If a child has expressed interest in the sport, a good starting point might be an 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. — Zeke Zucker, Local Nordic Legend
