The Cross-country skiing is a winter sport, original of the Nordic peoples, born from the need to move in areas covered with snow for most of the year, a sport practiced today in the Nordic countries, in the Alpine regions and Canada. Originally, they used rudimentary snowshoes, built by hand with bark and twigs, while today using modern and sophisticated equipment. In the Nordic countries, they have been recovered numerous artifacts and numerous testimonies that confirm the practice of cross-country since ancient times, but it will be until the second half of 1800 that cross-country skiing is practiced for sports purposes. The first race of cross-country skiing was held in Norway, but it will be only at the end of 1800, with the crossing of Greenland on skis from the bottom of the Norwegian Nansen, who cross-country skiing will be successful and become a winter sport also in other countries.
