The ancient people of the Scandinavian peninsula used a pair of long wooden planks, the skíð (Norwegian for cracked wood), to move around and to stay stable they tied them with ropes on their shoes!
A few thousand years later, skis took the form they have today, while bindings and boots transformed skiing from a way of transportation to a safe activity and exercise!
Skiing has been an Olympic sport since 1998 and includes events such as alpine skiing (slalom, downhill, super alpine), cross-country skiing and freestyle skiing.
