SKIING

Source: Outdoor Sports and Games
Category: ONE HUNDRED OUTDOOR GAMES





This sport has recently received wide popularity in sections of the
country where the winters make it possible. Skis--or, as they are
sometimes spelled, skee,--are a pair of flat runners from five to ten
feet long which are attached to the feet in such a way as to be easily
cast off in case of accident. By means of skis a ski-runner may either
make rapid progress over level snow or may coast down sharp
declivities and make jumps of great extent.

Skis are usually made of ash and the standard lengths are from six to
eight feet. They cost from five to seven dollars a pair. In skiing it
is customary to use a pair of steel-shod poles with leather wrist
straps, but in ski-running or coasting the use of poles is very
dangerous.
