Already the winter destinations, like Cervinia ski resort, are preparing for the influx of winter visitors and skiers are gearing up for the winter season. There are many resorts offering cross-country skiing, so let’s remind ourselves of some of the premiere cross-country skiing resorts.

Lapland has an incredibly long season, so cross-country skiers can get the most out of the resort. The cross-country skiing in this region is open to all ability levels, plus there are refreshment huts along the way. This resort is stunning with so much to explore while taking in the wonderful scenery.
