Cross-Country Skiing

We've been cross-country skiing in the northern Alps, and the "cross-country" included an enormous amount of time slogging upwards and short slides back down again. In the southern Alps and Pre-Alps of the Beyond region, there are many plateaux where you'll get more "cross-country" than climbing. If you prefer the up-and-down method, however, there is plenty of choice in that area as well.
