XC ski in Finland

When I think of cross country skiing (classic or skating) I visualize people gliding effortlessly across the snow in sexy outfits much like what a cyclist wears. We didn't so much ski as we waddled around bundled up like so many Michelin Men.

Our skis had bindings that were able to accept our Sorels! My feet were so wide they would drag on the sides of the groomed tracks so I opted to glide on the center of the groomed trails that is actually for skate skiing.

That said, being out in the dark was a blast.

The automobile roads here don't have street lights but all the XC ski trails do. It's awesome. They even have traffic signs like, "100 m to Intersection" and distance signs letting you know how far it is to the next destination.
