why snowboarding killed off cross country skiing

Ever watched the skiers and snowboarders on TV and thought in you mind just how easy they make it look. The skill theses guys posses are just unbelievable, but we do enjoy when they take a tumble or two.

The Alpine skiing lifts paved they way for the first skiing activity which of course is cross country skiing. The sport really did take of with the European people dominating cross country skiing but with the introduction of first skiing and then snowboarding hitting the scene, cross country skiing is now the least popular of winter sports that people want to take part in.

That is why the children that grow up in these regions become excellent skiers because of the conditions around them everyday. Skiing really is great for holiday makers looking for new pursuits but then they invented the mad fun extreme sport called snowboarding.

Snowboarding foundations were built on the concept of skiing with a single board. Flying downhill on a single bit of wood may seem daunting but when you do take part and have a go you then see why the sport has captured the attention of the many young fans of this fun loving sport.

It seems that this sport has really taken over and I would go to say that snowboarding has replaced the sport of skiing because it is just far more exciting once the adrenalin kicks into your body.

Skiing is still quite popular amongst the older generation who like a slower and more relaxed approach to winter sports. The great thing about taking part in these winter sports is at the end of the day you can then just chill out in front of a real fire in your log cabin.
