Doesn't really delve into the ancient history of skiing, but if you want to know the history of skiing as a sport, I've just started reading The History of Modern Skiingand I've found it to be a fascinating read so far. It focuses on the post-World War II era, and it was written by John Fry (Former Editor in Chief of SKI magazine, one of the founders of NASTAR, and friends with many of the greatest skiers of the 20th century).

Well worth picking up.
