Top 5 Sports on Snow

Jan 12, 2011

Are you bored of building snowmen yet? Did you get in trouble for hitting your brother with a snowball in the face? It’s time for you to get into some snow sports. Here are the Kidzworld Top 5 Sports in the snow!


Snowboarding

Boarding is BestBoarding is Best

Board sports all began with surfing. Then, the surfers came up with a way to surf on land with skateboards. Finally, after an exciting James Bond movie scene with James breaking off a snowmobile board and surfing down the mountain through Russian KGB special agents… Snowboarding was born! That was back in the early 80s and now Snowboarding has become the most popular sport on snow!


Skiing

Skiing reigned as the most fun sport on skis until snowboarding became cool in the 1990’s. However skiing is making a comeback. With the ski companies making twin tip skies, skiing is making a run at the cool tricks that are going off in the halfpipes and snowboard parks.


Tobogganing

Well technically, tobogganing is not a sport because it’s not an event in the Winter Olympics. I don’t care! One of the most amazing races I ever saw was a toboggan race between my neighbors up the hill from my house. There were 3 kids on each toboggan and as they traveled down a 50-foot hill in the back alley of my street, the lead changed 3 times while they pelted each other with snowballs. The sled with the dog won by inches or you could say they won by a dog’s nose!


Snowshoeing

Snowshoes are great for hiking the long fields of snow wherever it snows. It’s a great sport for keeping you in shape and getting in touch with nature. There are even snowshoe races for sprinters. You can run in competitions of 100 meters sprint and 100 meters hurdles.


Ski Jump

Scary Ski JumpScary Ski Jump

One of the most thrilling jumps that a human being can do without a parachute is the ski jump. There are not many ski jumping ramps in the world that you can find, but it is such a crazy sport, Kidzworld had to list it as one of the best sports on snow. Some Olympic ski jumpers can jump over 200 m!!!
