. It’s about the development of skiing and snowboarding. If anyone’s got any info they want to share with it im sure it will help. If you got any links that would be cool.
Hi Bravo - Welcome to Epic. You may have already done searches on Google about the "history of skiing". When I did, I turned up 37,000 hits. On the first couple of pages of hits, every single one was relevant:http://www.google.com/search?q=%22history+of+skiing%22
Performing the search and reviewing the first couple of pages of results took me less than 1 minute. Since you didn't mention that you already did this, may I ask why not? It's the obvious first thing to do whenever you need info and have a computer available.
Let me make a suggestion that is applicable to life as well as your particular situation. If you show some evidence that you exerted a reasonable amount of effort on a project, ie, tried on your own to find the info you need but couldn't and are now finally asking others to spend some of their time helping you, just about every person I know (myself included) will bend over backwards trying to help you.
OTOH, if you ask for help before you have even lifted a finger (or forgot to mention that you did), you'll wind up with quite a few people who will suspect that you are nothing more than a slouch who wants people to do all your work for you, even the basics.
For example, if you had simply said, "Hey, I found 37000 hits on Google but don't know which ones are important and if the stuff in Wikipedia is correct", I guarantee that you would have immediately received lots of help.
There are quite a few experts on the history skiing here on Epic (BTW, I'm not one of them). Asking them to write up the basics for you is like immediately going to brain surgeon when you haven't even taken an aspirin to see if that will cure your headache.
Sorry to sound so harsh, but I meet a lot of lazy kids in my work. I'm not sure if you are one of them (you might be enthusiastic and went to a very knowledgeable source first), but if you don't want to be mistaken for one, do a bit of homework first or let us know what you already tried to find the info that you need.
