The History of Skiing

By Linda Tancs

Did you know that skiing boasts a history over 4,000 years?  Or that the world’s oldest ski found in Russia is around 8,000 years old?  These and other facts about the sport are on display at Oslo’s Ski Museum.  Located at the base of Holmenkollen ski resort’s international ski jump, the museum houses artifacts, ski collections, an action film showcasing Norwegian skiing and an array of information on polar skiing, ski production, disciplines, and ancient history.
