But there were many other skiing countries, such as Austria, France, Finland, Italy, Germany, Iceland, Greenland, Latvia, Estonia, Canada, the Czech Republic, Argentina, and the USA.
When all the events were put together, 2.313 skiing and rollerskiing kilometers were available, with 27 events in classic technique, 7 in freestyle, 11 classic rollerski events, and 1 skating rollerski race.
