  • The History of Skiing

  • Posted By: Sharon West
  • Skiing is a sport that involves traveling over snow with the use of skis. The history of skiing is believed to go back at least eight millennia, all the way back to 6000 B.C. In the Xinjiang region of what is now China, there were wall paintings found that depicted the use of skis. These wall paintings are believed to be about 5,000 years old.
