Hello! My name is Kikkan and I am a cross country ski racer.
Cross country skiers are known to be some of the fittest athletes on the planet and when one thinks of cross country ski racing, pictures of grimacing faces and bodies strewn across the snow after the finish line probably come to mind. Yet while our sport is physically grueling, there is a fun and lighter side as well. We get to travel to ski destinations all over the world and ski in some of the most scenic and incredible outdoor theaters. Our sport combines endurance with strength, power and speed, and our lifestyle is focused on being as healthy as we can be. It’s a pretty awesome day job!
