Ok i have to do a english speech and i choose skiing. i was just wondering where i could find good history about skiing any ideas would help a lot. Thanks
Nice double topic...
Anyway, theres tons of books on the history and all of it, just check your library. That will probibly be your best source but what do you want info on? The equipment, form, or what?

yeah im looking for basically everything, like when the fisrt skier skied to now and equipment and stuff like that
they used skis in ww1 and 2 in the mountains during the winter
A good friend will bail you out of jail, but your best friend will be the one sitting next to you saying 'That was fucking awesome!'
Im pretty sure they developed 'skis' a long time ago in like Norway, Sweden, or Finland. In those countries up in northern Europe is where skis originted from. And there was an article in skiing from like 2 yrs ago that explained where the word 'ski' came from

thanks for the stuff, is there like any web sites that might talk a little about skiings past?
aslo any newschool information would help
look at the powder website they're a pretty old magazine
thanks. but i have decided to just stick with newschool skiing and stuff like that because the other shit is to hard to find
do it on if snowboarders should be allowed at all mountains. go to www.freethesnow.com and there is your report for you, as long as you think they should be allowed to ride anywhere. its perfect!
you should check out about vikings. They lived in norway for a long time ago and they used skis
