Snow sports are a group of recreational and competitive activities that are done on snow or ice. These activities typically involve sliding, gliding, or jumping on snow or ice using specialized equipment. Some common snow sports include skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, ice hockey, and curling. Snow sports can be done on groomed slopes, in snow parks, or in the backcountry on untouched snow. They are popular in regions with cold winters and ample snowfall, and many people enjoy participating in these activities as a way to stay active and enjoy the winter weather.
