Ski Vacation: Adventure Vacation
Skiing is an adventure that many people love. It’s great fun to ski on a nice patch of white ice and get up to speed. Modern skiing is gradually branching off from snowshoes. A Norwegian, Sondre Norheim, is considered the father of modern skiing. In the early 1800s he invented Slalom, now known as Telemark skiing.
Although skiing is largely considered a sport, there are many practical uses of transportation in colder climates, and many militaries train troops in skiing. Most people wear warm clothes and follow a run, walk or slope. Usually ski routes are checked for safety. Some skiers also enjoy cross-country skiing. If one is a beginner and not an expert, it is much safer to stay within the resort limits. Several European countries have banned cross-country skiing due to avalanche incidents, and the high cost of search and rescue operations.
Ski lovers feel rushed when they ski, a feeling similar to flying. It has become very popular now, and there are many good ski schools where one can learn the basics.
It’s easy to learn how to ski, and the basic skills can be taught to anyone. Once the skill is mastered, one can enjoy it with friends and family. Skiing is the perfect way to stay in good physical shape. It’s also great to sit around the fireplace in the cottage in a warm blanket, with your partner sitting next to you, holding hot coffee or brandy in hand.
