There are many types of skiing available but the most common type of skiing is Alpine skiing.

History

Skiing was a prehistoric activity; the oldest known skis date to between 8000 and 7000 bce and were discovered in Russia. Beforehand skis have been planted in numerous areas of northern Europe a- time-old gemstone carving depicting skis was planted near the Arctic Circle in Norway, and hundreds of ski fragments that are two times old have been planted in bogs in Sweden, Norway, and Finland. Some of the first skis were short and broad, suggesting snowshoes further than modern skis. Skiing clearly wasn't confined to Europe, however, as the first written references to skiing are from the Han dynasty( 206 bce – 220 ce) and describe skiing in northern China.

Numerous peoples who lived in climates with snow for numerous months of the time developed some form of skiing. The Sami( Lapps) believed themselves to be the inventors of skiing, and their use of skis for stalking was famed from Roman times. In addition, the Vikings used skis from the 9th to the 11th century. Skis are still sometimes used for trips in rural areas of Russia and the Scandinavian countries.

 

Skiing also has long been employed for military purposes. Norwegian men on skis revealed before the Battle of Oslo( 1200). Ski troops were also used in Sweden in 1452, and from the 15th to the 17th century, skis were used in warfare in Finland, Norway, Russia, Poland, and Sweden.Capt. Jens Emma Hausen wrote the first skiing primer for Norwegians in 1733. Since 1767 there have been military ski competitions with financial prizes. These competitions may have been the forerunner of biathlons, which combine skiing and target firing. Military skiing continued into the 20th century where snow conditions and terrain favored their use for scouts and for a type of mounted infantry with a first- strike advantage against small objectives. In particular, ski colors fought in both World War I and World War II. Numerous veterans, especially of World War II, were veritably active in promoting the sport of skiing after returning to mercenary life.
