Skiing is a winter sport that involves ways of travelling over snow with skis.  It is a great recreational activity and an exciting competitive sport, being a major part of the winter Olympic Games.  Ski events include Alpine skiing, freestyle skiing, snowboarding and Nordic events.  Some professions that utilise skiing skills include ski schools and instructors, rangers, emergency and rescue services and specialised police and military units.

Australia has several well developed ski resorts, including Thredbo and Perisher in New South Wales, and Mount Hotham, Falls Creek and Mount Buller in Victoria.  Cross country skiing is popular in such parks as Kosciuszko National Park and Alpine National Park and the Tasmanian Wilderness.
