    Default Winter Olympic Recreation Sports Indoors & Outdoors

    I posted the topic this way to allow a little flexibity in posting replies....
    I personally prefer most winter sports "indoors"... ice figure skating, single and pairs. and now large team unison exhibition, added recently. Even recreation ice fishing could be included here. Of course, an old timer like me was fascinated with the "Queen of Figure Skating"...Sonia Henie...! This statue is her memory: Posted as an attachment... click the thumbnail to enlarge. I hope to added more winter events as this topic grows...

    Figure skating,single, pairs, ice hockey, speed skating, curling and so much more.

    Thank you ladies from Florida for starting Winter Olympic sports reminder. Bring the hot cider and rum OK? ...

    In appreciation for the ladies pointing me to this topic I believe it would be appropiate to show a pair of lady tobogan racers starting off a run like this:



    Helen Upperton, right and Heather Moyse will be in Canada 2010,,,

    We wish the fast ladies good luck.... that ride always scares me. ...

    With all this cold weather talk is why I post in blue....I'm freezing all the time.

    Canada will be a busy place this winter... many will go for the Winter olympics and some just for the great snowmobiling races and fun. Like this one:



    Who is having the most fun here the snowmobiler or the skier? Either one they are both getting in some fun before the competitions start. Do you plan on going..... have your insurance paid up to date?

    I was finally asked by some real serious skiers to post about exciting Slalom Racing...lots of snow and thrill seekers like this one.
    This high speed skier avoids those markers.

    But, of course these 12 year olds show up at the World Cup and puts everybody to shame like this.

    Then those other Free Skiers show off with crazy stunts like a double front somersault... click the attachment and check it out......

    Ok... those crazy snowmobilers from PA are out there again. Most clubs travel in groups on prepared trails to special recreation "lodge stops" for a hot meal and socialize a little. However, those Acrobatic guys and gals... put on their flying wings and do leaps like this:



    Is that a ski jump? Sometimes they get out their before the snows fall and practice on water like this.

    Now that's really wild. Lots of terrible towels needed there. ......
