Posted by Administrator on 1/8/2014 to General
It goes without saying that skiing and snowboarding have become integral parts of American culture. Of course skiing has been part of the American lexicon basically since snow first hit the ground. Its roots can be traced back thousands of years and across countless cultures all over the world. And, more recently, within the past few decades, snowboarding has found its rightful place in the American mainstream’s consciousness. So much so that it’s become part of the Olympic Games. Even now, in the upcoming 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, a new, “slopestyle,” competition has been added to the snowboarding Olympic events. 

In fact, according to, during the 2012-2013 snow sports season, the amount of Americans that are skiing and snowboarding has revealed unprecedented numbers. The amount of American Alpine skiers has reached 8,243,000 and the amount of American snowboarders has reached a whopping 7,351,000. Wondering what the fuss is about?
