Whether it is traditional Alpine and cross-country skiing, or snowboarding and freestyle skiing, ski holidays have become increasingly popular and accessible the world over, even in non-traditional winter sports countries.
History of Skiing
Even our prehistoric ancestors knew how to inject a bit of fun into winter by strapping early skis onto their feet for hunting and travelling. The earliest skis date to between 8,000 and 7,000 BCE. Today, with things like heli skiing and specialised skiing apps, we’ve truly come a long way.
