The Origins Of Skiing

Skiing, or traveling over snow on skis, has a history of at least five millennium. The earliest archaeological examples of skis were found in Russia and date to 5000 BCE. Although modern skiing has evolved from beginnings in Scandinavia, 10,000-year-old wall paintings suggest use of skis in the Xinjiang region of what is now China. Originally purely utilitarian, starting in the mid-1800's skiing became a popular recreational activity and sport, becoming practiced in snow-covered regions world-wide, and providing crucial economic support to purpose-built ski resorts and communities
