For sample adults who had participated in cross-country skiing in the past 2 weeks (EXCCSKI), EXCCSKIMIN reports the average number of minutes respondents had spent cross-country skiing each time they had engaged in that activity over the past 2 weeks.

After determining that a respondent participated in cross-country skiing, respondents were first asked, "How many times in the past 2 weeks did you go cross-country skiing?" (EXCCSKINO). They were then asked, "On the average, about how many minutes did you spend cross-country skiing each time?" EXCCSKIMIN reports the answer to this last question.
