XC ski events are a huge part of skiing fun and motivation for skiers of all ages -- but particularly for adult skiers. All of us ski most of the time alone or with just a couple friends. XC events for masters allow us to get out of the box and enjoy a variety of distances and often routes that we'd never be able to experience on our own. XC events also provide day-to-day motivation to stay fit both in the off-season and winter alike. Finally, XC events provide a perfect reason to travel to amazing destinations around the XC world. You don't have to be super serious. You don't have spend a ton of money. But make it a priority to get out there and experience XC events every winter!
