Skiing is a popular winter sport in all cold regions of the world. Much loved by first timers as well, this sport has a rich background dating back to 5000 years! You will be surprised to know that European soldiers used animal bones as skis and strapped them to their boots using leather straps! Today, not only has skiing found more sophisticated equipment, but also found its way to the other end of the world, i.e. Australia. Today, Australia is home to the largest skiing resort in the entire southern hemisphere, offering great runs and some amazing skiing valleys!
Australia is home to the Snowy Mountains that are home to some of the most epic skiing villages like Jindabyne, Perisher and Threbdo with the last one being the largest skiing destination in the southern hemisphere. Though people usually do not associate Australia with snow, Australia is a highly diverse country offering avenues for beach surfing as well as snowboarding! The fact that a lot of leading Olympians in Winter Olympics hail from Australia is a big testimony for the skiing resorts of this place where they have trained over the years!
