Introduction
Adelsman's Cross-Country Ski Page, better known as Skinnyski.com, is dedicated to covering cross-country skiing in the upper Midwest. Our site provides information on trails, trail conditions, training programs, equipment, lodging, races and race results, and general notices. Geographically, we cover all of Minnesota, Wisconsin, northern Iowa, the upper peninsula of Michigan, and the Thunder Bay area of Canada.

Background
Adelsman's Cross-Country Ski Page started back in the 1994-1995 season as a simple listing of races that was part of our personal home page. Each year we added a little more information until by 1997 we had information on races and trail reports covering the upper Midwest area. In the fall of 1998, after moving the page three times in four years, we finally purchased the domain name 'skinnyski.com' and set up permanent residence.

We started the ski page out of our enjoyment of the upper Midwest citizen races and finding places to ski when the snow was sparse. Race coverage and snow reports have remained part of our main focus at skinnyski.com. We continue to expand into areas that seem to be a good fit with the other coverage we already provide.
