Skiing is a metaphor for life…you can ski from cradle to grave.  The goal of the Wausau Nordic United is to instill the love of skiing and develop modern efficient ski movements for a lifetime of skiing.  

Skiers are multiple sport athletes.  Many use cross-country skiing as a primary form of cross-training in the winter for another primary sport.  Other sports current athletes participate in during the off-season include:  ballet, basketball, dance, cross country running, hiking, lacrosse, mountain & road biking, soccer, swimming, track and field. Regardless of why you Nordic ski, cross country skiing provides a way to live and enjoy a healthy active outdoor lifestyle.
