How did the sport skiing originate?

Skiing started as a means of transportation. By it's most basic definition of riding across ground on two sticks, evidence suggests Cro-Magnon man skied. It continued to be used for utilitarian purposes for a long time. Recreational skiing, or the sport of skiing, started developing when the Norwegians held competitions within their military. As civilians became enthralled with the sport, downhill skiing became more popular than the usual cross country skiing. The 1924 Olympics helped with skiing's popularity, and the invention of the chair lift in 1936 increased participation vastly.
