2015: The year ahead in Nordic skiing

Image holder for not sport news.

The season started in 2014, and with no Paralympics on the schedule soon, this year’s schedule isn’t as jammed as last year.  Because the sport takes place at the end and beginning the year, it is hard to know what year end 2015 holds schedule wise at this point.  People of all disability types compete including ID, deaf, VI and physical disabilities.
