A survey conducted by MMI and published by Sport, the Norwegian trade magazine, found that the country remains a haven for cross-country skiing. The researchers estimated that 70 percent of all Norwegian adults had at least one pair of cross-country skis. Yet more encouragingly, about 13 percent said that they had two pairs of skis, while 4 percent had three pairs or more. All in all, Norway boasts more cross-country skis per capita than any other country. The survey did not include pairs that are left to gather dust in the garage: It only counted skis that are actively used. The highest density of cross-country skis could be found in Oslo and among people with higher income.
