Yes, you head me say it, Norwegians invented skiing. Maybe you already know, maybe I should have known. Not sure why this was a surprise to me when I heard it.

If watching the video makes the inner snowbird in you scream out and demand you look up the best snow locations to experience this for yourself, don’t worry, we’ve got your covered.

Just in case you’re interested, and don’t want to look foolish like I did, there is a list of other things Norwegians influenced and created all over the world. Small in population, they sure know how to travel around and influence life as we know it.
