Extreme Sports

Extreme sports (also called action sports, aggro sports, and adventure sports) is a popular term for certain activities perceived as having a high level of inherent danger. These activities often involve speed, height, a high level of physical exertion, and highly specialized gear. While use of the term extreme sport has spread far and wide to describe a multitude of different activities, exactly which sports are considered extreme is debatable.

A winter sport is a sport which is played on snow or ice. Most such sports are variations of skiing, ice skating and sledding. Traditionally such sports were only played in cold areas during winter, but artificial snow and ice allow more flexibility. Common individual sports include cross-country skiing, Alpine skiing, snowboarding, ski jumping, speed skating, figure skating, luge, skeleton, bobsleigh and snowmobiling. Common team sports include ice hockey, curling and bandy. Winter sports often have their own multi-sport tournaments, such as the Winter Olympic Games.

The term 'Winter sports' refers to sport that take place on snow and ice. Keen competition has grown up around them, and the Winter Olympics are held every four years. There are two main types of skiing:

Alpine Skiing, which features downhill and slalom racing.
Nordic Skiing, which is a cross-country sport that also includes ski jumping.

A new type of skiing, freestyle, is about performance rather than speed. In sled racing, riders hurtle down a special runs. Skating includes figure, ice hockey, and racing.
