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.
