Skiing in Canada

My project describes the various skiing disciplines. I also include information about historical Canadian skiers.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

One of the most interesting things I learned is that skier Steve Podborski went 220km/hr down a ski course. I never knew you could go that fast on skis.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I learned that there are a wide variety of skiing disciplines and there were some that I did not know about before. Also, our Canadian skiers have impacted world skiing history.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Skiing today has better equipment that makes skiing safer and easier for everyone. Skiing equipment is more accessable to more people, making it a sport that more can enjoy.
