So does this follow the same logic as att åka buss, except the "vehicle" you use are skis?
Just checking: Åka skidor refers to 'crosscountry', whereas 'to ski downhill'' would be åka slalom or åka utför. Or have I misunderstood something?
Åka skidor is just generally ’go skiing’. ’go cross-country skiing’ is åka längdskidor. The word utför means downhill, that’s correct, and slalom is ’slalom’.
Tack så mycket! I think I let my mothertongue interfere with my thought process a tad too much. :(
