Cross-Country Skiing Lessons with Top Olympians at the Youth Olympics

Young Hollywood goes international! That's right, we have flown all the way to Switzerland to get the lowdown on the most exciting and promising up-and-coming young athletes at the Young Olympic Games in Lausanne, Switzerland! High up in the mountains, only a hop-skip-and-jump from the French border, we brave the slightly rainy conditions to catch up with two members of the U.S. Ski Team, Kendall Kramer and Sydney Palmer-Leger, to learn all the fundamentals about cross-country skiing! Find out some basic skiing terminology, such as "double pulling", "striding", and (yes) "pizza", plus the two athletes explain why they prefer cross-country to other forms of skiing and offer some advice for anyone else who is thinking of getting into the sport!
