Skiing is a competitive and recreational winter sport where individuals balance two long skis on each foot, and attempt to move downhill. Originally used as a means to travel through snow efficiently, skis now are used for a variety of winter reasons including hunting, sledding, and recreational downhill skiing. Each modern ski is typically long and slender with an upward bend and point at the front, and made from a combination of plastic, carbon, wood, steel and aluminum. Types of skiing include Alpine, Nordic and Telemark skiing, and include cross country events like, ski jumping, freeriding, and alpine skiing. Skiing is a sport that is prominently featured in the Winter Olympics.

What is alpine skiing?

Alpine skiing is downhill skiing but with fixed-heel bindings that allow the skier to set themselves in a perfect position to maneuver down a mountain. Alpine skiers practice this sport on a ski resort or go outside the ski areas.

What is super g skiing?

Super-G or Super Giant Slalom is the racing category of downhill skiing and is all about speed and precision. It officially became known to the work in the 1983 World Cup and was added to the Winter Olympics in 1988.

How many calories does skiing burn?

Burning calories while skiing varies from gender, weight, and trails. On average a person skiing burns 500 calories in an hour on normal intensity. Depending on the level of workout you are doing on the mountain and your weight class, that number will fluctuate.
