    Anywhere you can go without using a motorized ski-lift. Cross-country skiing is definitely greener than downhill, because you can ski on snow that falls naturally, doesn’t have to be groomed, and you do not need an electric or diesel motor to get you back up to the top. If you plan on going skiing though (as in w/ lift tickets, and a ski lodge for hot chocolate) you can consider and investigate this resource: http://www.skiareacitizens.com/    which is an environmental group that concerns itself with skiing green! they offer this list:
