A brief history of skiing…

Back in October last year I wrote an article for Mount Vacation. It was all about the history of skiing, which I have to admit, was actually pretty interesting. Everyone is pretty familiar with the Winter Olympic skiing and the freestyle skiing at the Winter X Games so it was great to find out some info from 1921 about the first slalom race but there was also info about the first skis ever made dating back to 6300-5000 BC!
