    Holiday Summary:

You also have activity points that you can exchange for a variety of other winter activities if you want a day or half day off from skiing or you can choose more cross country ski lessons .

    You can choose either classic cross country skiing, where you slide one ski in front of the other along predefined tracks in the snow or skating, which is more technical and a faster form of cross country skiing or a bit of both. If you are unsure of the different types of cross country skiing, read our blog, Cross Country Skiing Revealed which explains all the disciplines.
