The American Birkebeiner is the largest cross-country ski race in North America. The above video is presented by the Educational Communications Board (ECB) in Wisconsin. The ECB focuses mostly on climate, but their video also has good information about and pictures of the race. This year, the Birkebeiner race week festival ran from Thursday, February 24 through Sunday, February 27, 2011 A.D.
