Best Answer

I think skiing started in Scandinavia as a mode of transport.

Sandre Norheim of Norway is known as the father of modern skiing and was considered one of the best skiers at jumping, parallel, and Telemark style turning during the 1800's. From there, skiing was brought to the Alps and the US. Skiing might have been invented separately in China, but I'm not sure about that.

Alpine skiing came around in the Alps in the 1880:s.
