The first information about skis dates the Stone age,when in Arctic were found the first pictures on the rocks. On the walls there were depicted hunters with skis on the feet. The time period of these pictures coincides with the time of pyramid building. Thus, we can suppose that skiing existed even 4500 years ago. The first skis were made of animalsâ€™ bones.
Actually in ancient times winters were very severe and snowy, that is why the local citizens used skis as the means of moving everywhere. If they went hunting, to a fair, to visit friends or in a neighbour village - they always used skis.
