Winter active recreation.

Mountain skiing, a snowboard Of course, the most known and expensive type of winter active recreation are mountain skiing and a snowboard (alpine skiing rounds). This type of rest is familiar to everyone, and is the most popular. For those who at least once in life got up on mountain skiing or a snowboard - it becomes a favourite hobby for the rest of life. It will be in turn fair to allocate such branch of mountain skis as telemark. Telemark arose in the Norwegian province of the same name at the beginning of 19 century.

Windsurfing is a hybrid of sailing and surfing. Simpler it is the sailing board reminding the small yacht, but with important difference: control is exercised not of a wheel, but a mast tilt angle with a sail, and by means of an inclination of the board from a board aboard. During the windsurfing movement the athlete has to operate holding the cross-piece called by the geek to arrange a sail concerning wind so that on a sail there was draft force.
