Skiing

Skiing is a recreational activity and competitive sport in which the participant attaches skis to boots or shoes on the feet and uses them to travel on top of snow. Aside from recreation and competition, skiing has been used for military purposes and travelling in areas that experience heavy snowfall. Until about 1860 skiing was primarily used for practical transport purposes in snow-rich areas, from around 1860 skiing for recreation, exercise and competition was introduced.

Many types of competitive skiing events are recognized by the International Olympic Committee, and the International Ski Federation. Today, inspired by the 2014 Olympic Winter Games which is being held in Sochi, Russia from 7 February to 23 February, we selected a gallery of 12 analog photos of skiing.
