Alpine Skiing History
Skiing is a sport with a long and rich history. In fact, there have been remains of skis found preserved in peat bogs in Scandinavia that date back to prehistoric times! The sport of alpine skiing is generally believed to have started in the mid-nineteenth century when Norwegian Sondre Norheim first used skis with curved sides and went down slalom turns. The first sporting events were held in Norway in the 1840s, a few decades later the sport spread to the rest of Europe and the world and is now one of the most popular sports and hobbies in the world. Of course, the professional competitors are on a whole new level and have to be seen to be believed.
