Reader's note

Skiing can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Childrens can start at the age of four or five (Alpine childrens start as early as two years old!), and many people continue to ski well past the age of seventy. A great deal has changed over the years, equipment is much better, techniques have undergone scientific study and modernisation, the sport has become a world-wide one, while - not least significant - it has developed in places where there is no snow. Improved social conditions have brought greater opportunities and the advert of artificial ski slopes has made this not only a sport which the young and elderly can enjoy together, but which anyone can have a go at, regardless of income and without going to the mountains in winter.
