Cross-Country Skiing is one of the most well-known Winter Olympic events and should be on your viewing schedule.
Let’s be real, there isn’t a time of year you care more about things like Cross-Country Skiing than when it’s at the Winter Olympics. Only once every four years do we actually care about this event — but holy cow do we care when it’s on.
It’s not really thrilling to watch, but when there’s a gold medal on the line we tend to invest ourselves more. National pride tends to do weird things to us and the Olympics is the height of that.
That being said, you’re a fool to miss any of the action. Here are the times for the Ski Jumping events this year at the Olympics:

Cross-Country Skiing lives for hte Winter Olympics, and you should live to watch it. It’s the very definition of something that’s “a marathon not a sprint”, which makes watching the event the whole way through even more worth the final result.
